Presentation Summary

In many electromechanical systems with motion, throughput and accuracy is hampered by vibration (induced or parasitic). To avoid vibration in driven loads, motion profiles have to be adjusted. There is a limit to how much S-curve or jerk limiting can be applied. This is especially true for linear modules used for X-Y-Z motion in 3D printers. Adaptive control technology from Rexroth gets past these limits to provide higher throughput and accuracy. This is achieved by either avoiding the excitation of vibrational frequencies, controlling them by an external sensors, or a combination of both.
