Keep it Simple with Smart Motion Systems (.PDF Download)

March 29, 2017

Designers of conveyor systems and other motion-control systems have long been forced to choose productivity over flexibility. That is because conventional motion systems use a strictly mechanical design approach, involving rotary-driven chains, belts, and gears. These systems are not only complex, but also rigid, inflexible, and challenging to maintain. So while a machine or line may achieve a desired throughput level, changing to a new product can require extensive mechanical retooling...
