When it comes to step motors, a new drive technique called stepper servo has some engineers believing they have found the holy grail of positioning motion control - the high performance of a servo motor with the low cost of a step motor.
Here we look at four important trends in motion control technology for applications involving medical and laboratory equipment. Underlying all four trends are rapid and radical changes in the cost of computing power and amplifier electronics.
A noisy or chattering servo axis is perhaps the single most common motion problem that engineers encounter when building their motor-based machine. This deep dive focuses on servo motor noise problems and how to solve them.
