Maximizing Throughput with PMAC Lookahead Feature

Manufacturers are always looking to keep efficiencies as high as possible. This normally includes maintaining the maximum production capabilities of the machine while still producing a high-quality product. One of the ways to achieve the highest throughput is to use a PMAC motion controller and a feature called Lookahead. This white paper explores this feature in detail and offers some examples of solutions that use it.

PMAC stands for programmable multiaxis motion controller. They are the motion control family of products at Omron.

PMAC's range of motion are from the simplest move to the more advanced motion, including camming, multi-axis, coordinated, customer kinematics and much more.

Yes, the PMAC is designed for flexibility. There are axis, feedback and IO modules that will work with most types of specialized and even custom components.

A motion control system contains the motion profiles and target positions for the application and creates the trajectories for the motor and/or actuator. Motion control often utilizes monitoring, or "feedback", devices to maintain the position of the motor and its load. It can also use the feedback to correct the position to maintain any possible errors that may occur.

Flexible and affordable motion control for specialty manufacturers

Small manufacturers have often avoided machine control because they considered the technology too complex. While some products do, in fact, require the combined efforts of a team of programmers, read how Omron helped two specialty manufacturers tackle cost and production challenges.
