Component compatibility can make or break a good system
Selecting the right components and sub-systems when designing machines requires the consideration of many factors, as Gerard Bush of INMOCO explains. Engineering designers usually start a project knowing what they want their machine or equipment to achieve; naturally to working backwards from (more...)
Danfoss launches the next generation VLT drives range
With the launch of the next-generation E-frame versions, Danfoss says variable speed drives in the VLT range are setting new standards for efficiency and compact construction. Available in ratings from 315 to 560kW 400, E-frame drives are up to 73% smaller than their predecessors, which makes (more...)
Compact servo drives key in collision avoidance testing
Compact servo drives are providing the driving force for AB Dynamics’ (ABD) fastest, most robust test rig yet. This enables the company, which specialises in testing systems for the automotive industry, to increase the speed and versatility of its Guided Soft Target (GST) vehicle. The (more...)
Combined servo amp and single axis controller sets new standards
A new servo amplifier and single axis controller in a single compact package is the latest product introduced by Yaskawa. The Sigma-7Siec is said to et new standards for control of single axis applications and has been developed to enable machine builders and automation end-users to benefit from (more...)
Cutting edge accuracy with Polaris CNC system
LG Motion provides Polaris Motion control systems specifically designed for CNC machines in laser-based manufacturing applications, diamond tool cutting and grinding of optical surfaces and many other high-performance areas. Polaris Motion simply delivers lower spindle temperature, improved speed (more...)
Danfoss delivers control without wires
Danfoss VLT FC102-series variable speed drives will soon be even easier and more convenient to set up, monitor and commission, thanks to the introduction of a new wireless HMI module. When used in conjunction with the MyDrive Connect app, this new module allows almost any modern tablet or smartphone (more...)
What is the smallest speed increment on a servo motor?
Andrew Fallows of Motor Technology considers a frequently asked question on the issue of speed control and offers some advice to engineers. When designing a drive system, particularly for critical applications, there are a number of issues that might seem self evident or obvious but are (more...)

Microstepping drives for step and direction control
Recently announced by Applied Motion Products (AMP) and available from Mclennan, its exclusive European distribution partner, the STR series stepper drives for step and direction control are now offered in two new AC-powered versions for higher torque applications. Complementing AMPs existing (more...)
Servo drives key for high speed robotic camera dolly
When writer/director Howard McCain outlined an idea he had for an extreme action shot, the studio told him it could only be done using computer generated imagery (CGI), and would cost over $1m, he was convinced there had to be a better way. Together with VFX supervisor David Kuklish, he explored (more...)
Control Techniques, part of the Nidec group of companies, will be demonstrating its advanced servo technologies designed for packaging and processing machinery builders’ industries at the PPMA exhibition this September. Among the products being exhibited will be Control Techniques’ new (more...)
