Intelligent Control Increases Motion System ROI
- Created: Monday, 01 February 2010
Applications, both new and old, can benefit from the new motion controller technologies. By removing a tired and unsupported controller from an old machine, and replacing it with a new motion controller with advanced control capabilities, the old machine can be made to function like new (or better), at far less cost than purchasing a new machine. Meanwhile, new applications like nondestructive materials testing are benefitting from the motion controllers’ advanced abilities to compress a lifetime of wear into a shorter testing cycle, while compiling data on the performance of the product under test. All applications can benefit from the flexibility of programmable motion controllers in adapting to changing production requirements.
