One Network from IT to Motion Control
Features 7/23/2010 Post a comment Machine builders achieve new levels of design flexibility by using the standard Ethernet network platform to connect devices across the enterprise and an entire machine, including variable frequency drives and servo drives for integrated motion control.
Anti-resonance and Vibration Suppression Application in Servo Systems
Features 7/2/2010 Post a comment Vibrations, resonances, and oscillations can cause problems in a servo-motor application. But when you turn down the control-loop gains, the driven machine responds more slowly. So what do you do when the tuning gains that run the machine with fast settling time cause it to screech and oscillate out of control?
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
