Motion control may have been around for decades but that doesn't mean the technology is static. Consumer demand changes constantly, placing new requirements on end-users and the OEMs and integrators that serve them. In response, the motion control food chain, from component vendors on up to systems houses is constantly developing new technologies, while OEMs, integrators, and users apply those technologies in new ways.
This webinar will deliver the MCMA's biennial snapshot of the industry, focusing on new technology trends, emerging applications, and, of course, the effect of the coronavirus pandemic has had on all of the above.

‘Motion’ in the physical world, whether in the form of changing place, position or posture, is perhaps the greatest differentiator between robotic systems and all other classes of engineered products. It is motion is that makes robotics systems ‘robotic’, and its advances in motion control technologies that have spurred robotics innovation, with the result that there has been a dramatic increase in the use of robotics technologies and products around the globe. In this webinar session, viewers will learn how support for robotic motion control has improved with the introduction of new products and technologies, and how they allow for new capabilities, new applications, and entry into new markets. Case studies and product examples will be used to highlight salient points.

Today’s equipment manufacturers are constantly challenged with finding cost-effective ways to deliver high-performance machines but leveraging the advanced motion control that servo motors deliver can come at a cost. Listen as two motion control experts explain how you an use two design techniques—current, and closed-loop—to achieve advanced motor control. You’ll also hear more about an innovative motion control technique that will achieve servo motor performance at a step motor cost. Take your machine design to the next level of performance.
