Flexible and affordable motion control for speciality 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.

A frequency inverter is a device designed to control the speed of AC induction motors without affecting the electric consumption, torque, impedance, magnetic flux, etc. of the motor. His allow acurate variantion and control of the motors velocity.

Servo motors are motors that have a positional feedback device to be able to monitor and maintain the position of the motor as well as the speed and torque of the motor.

The most common types are rotary and linear servo motors.

Rotary servo motors

Rotary servo motors rotate like other motors and utilize different types of mechanical actuators to achieve linear motion if needed.

Linear servo motors

Linear motors, however, are constructed so the move along linear bearings to achieve high speed and accuracy of linear motion with extra mechanical devices that can reduce the speed and accuracy required.

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.
