Motion Control: A New Driving Force

Nov. 4, 2022
The evolution of electric motion control and actuation has been happening on parallel paths. The technologies around motors and actuators have evolved.
As this e-book demonstrates, however, it’s not just as simple as adding electric systems and having a more efficient operation. There are considerations about motor selection (servo vs. stepper, for example), motor sizing, the use of encoders and the availability and value in DC power for systems. As with every other system on the plant floor, effective use of electric motors and actuators is a product of precise engineering, a clear understanding of operational goals and an understanding of the potential—and limits—of electric systems.
