Flat wire wave springs offer the best balance of size and spring force. Here’s what you need to know to design with these high-performance alternatives to traditional springs.
An ideal autotuning servo drive features proactive autotuning capabilities to prevent command sequences from exciting resonances and reactive autotuning to eliminate any additional error that crops up over the lifetime of the machine.
Incremental encoders are used on servo motors as feedback devices to determine position and direction. Motor controllers can also use the position information from the encoder to calculate velocity for speed control. The incremental encoder is a critical component that provides important data necessary for the automatic control of a variety of motion systems.
Ethernet technology was invented over 30 years ago as a robust way to interconnect computers in an office environment. The scale and performance of Ethernet has made it the go-to technology for industrial applications as well. However, the application of inappropriate media product raises considerable safety and conformance issues that have not been traditionally considered […]
Fans, blowers, and other air/fluid movement products have benefitted from many technology improvements in recent decades, primarily with the long life and controllability offered by electrically commutated brushless technology. AMETEK’s Precision Motion Control Division is a leading innovator of programmable and controllable air movement solutions that are viable across a myriad of applications and business […]
