Motion Control  

Motion Control is a process used in industrial processes to move a specific load in a controlled fashion and these systems use hydraulic pump, linear actuator, or electric motor, generally a servo. Actuator is a type of device that provides the energy to move the load and it is based on power, speed, precision, and cost requirements. The motor is the actual electromagnetic actuator, which generates the forces required to move the load. Robotics, CNC, and automation are all forms of motion control. Motion control is widely used in the packaging, printing, textile, semiconductor production, and assembly industries.

Motion Control products include a broad range of servo drives, servo motors and actuators. The servo drive is the link between the controllers and motor which translate the low energy reference signals from the controller into high energy power signals to the motor and Servo motor converts the current and voltage that comes from the drive into mechanical motion. These systems are flexible, efficient, and cost-effective and through the interaction of electromagnetic fields, they generate power.

The motion control system contains

A motion controller to generate set points.

A drive or amplifier to transform the control signal from the motion controller into a higher power electrical current or voltage that is presented to the actuator.

An actuator such as a hydraulic pump, air cylinder, linear actuator, or electric motor for output motion.

Mechanical components to transform the motion of the actuator into the desired motion, including: gears, shafting, ball screw, belts, linkages, and linear and rotary bearings.


Some Common control functions include

1. Velocity control

2. Position (point-to-point) control

3. Pressure or Force control

4. Electronic gearing


Courses and Eligibility
