Software monitors axis mechanics

The IndraDrive Productivity Agent software uses IndraDrive units as sensors monitoring the status of axis mechanics. It analyzes information based on drive-integrated motion logic and translates it into actionable information.

The software lets machine operators reduce or eliminate costly failures or shutdowns; maintain equipment as mechanical conditions warrant, not by an arbitrary schedule; save money by eliminating unnecessary maintenance; ensure the dynamics and precision of the axes are maximized, reducing wear and ownership costs; get advance warning of wear-related damage without additional hardware; improve quality, quantity, and performance of end products ; and lower energy consumption by running equipment at optimum performance.

Active vibration damping and a counteracting function lets users address other mechanical issues and improve the machine’s performance.
