The RMC180-Profi eight-axis servo motion controller provides the power of the PROFIBUS open-architecture fieldbus high technology with independent or coordinated control of eight motion axes for point-to-point linear positioning such as rolling-mill pinch rollers, plastic and ceramic injection-molding machinery, die-casting machines, and laser and saw positioning for edgers and resaws. The 7 X 5.8 X 4 inch, DIN-rail-mounted modules can be applied for precision control of hydraulic actuators controlling chippers and pickers.
