The integrated approach to advanced motion control

With the help of an advanced motion control system from Mitsubishi Electric, German screen-printing machine builder, Thieme, was able to develop a completely new generation of screen printing machines, the Thieme 5000 XL, which achieve continuous availability of 95 percent and, even more importantly, cut setup times to less than five minutes per printing station. One of the biggest challenges on the new Thieme 5000 XL screen printing machine was that it should be possible to translate the existing mechanical solution as precisely as possible to the new system - both to keep development overheads low despite the complete redesign of the drive concept and to avoid losing the years of development invested in the tried-and-tested movement sequences. To solve the problem, the Thieme team chose a Melsec System Q motion controller from Mitsubishi Electric, which provided the power and capacity to meet, and exceed, this requirement. System Q's programming language has the capability to implement existing mechanical solutions with graphical representations. In addition to this, it combines motion control, PLC and IPC modules on a single platform, which means that it can also handle the other machine control requirements as well as the motion control.
