Electromate Inc. Recognized as a Best Workplace™ in Canada

Best Place To Work

 

Electromate Inc. is proud to announce that it has been recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada.  This list, and related stories, will appear in a Special National Report on Thursday April 27, 2018 in The Globe and Mail.

Electromate prides itself on its commitment to the principles of Kaizen, or continuous improvement.  This holds true for the professional and personal development of its employees which has greatly contributed to the creation of a company culture embodying the Core Values of Integrity, Innovation, Enthusiasm, Continuous Learning and Customer Advocacy.

“Creating a ‘Great Place To Work’ has been pivotal in driving employee satisfaction and engagement”, says Warren Osak Founder and President of Electromate.  “Numerous empirical studies have shown that highly engaged employees are more productive and deliver a higher level of customer satisfaction than unengaged employees, and much of our competitive advantage stems from the positivity in our workplace.”

“The entire Electromate Team is thrilled to be recognized for our exceptional workplace culture and featured on the 2018 list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada.

The 2018 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute.  The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture.  This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture.  Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

Galil Motion Control Introduces The Galil Design Kit (GDK)

New software environment adds scope and tuner to growing list of tools and capabilities

Galil Design Kit

ROCKLIN, Calif. — Galil Motion Control Inc., the industry leader in motion control technology, has released the Galil Design Kit. This is Galil’s newest software environment, providing easy communication with Galil’s motion controllers and PLCs. Galil recently introduced the new scope and tuner to GDK’s growing list of tools and capabilities. All tools are customizable by editing the XLM, located in the “more options” menu at the top right corner of the software.

“The scope and tuner tools of GDK now provide customers with the functionality to easily troubleshoot and tune a system,” said Amber Ehardt, applications and marketing engineer with Galil Motion Control.

“GDK’s wide range of tools increases the motion control system’s performance and decreases integration time and effort.”

GDK currently includes these six tools:

– Scope: emulates a traditional digital oscilloscope.

– Tuner: assists in optimizing a system’s performance.

– Terminal: sends commands and receives responses from the controller.

– Editor: writes, saves and executes application programs.

– Viewer: enables real-time viewing of the controller’s I/O status, motor position and more.

– Setup: reads, edits, saves and restores all controller memory.

Scope:

The scope is designed to emulate a traditional digital oscilloscope. It provides intuitive measuring and

zooming tools, trigger tools, autoscale and more. There are a variety of trigger modes such as scan, auto

and normal, which allow the user to customize their waveform viewing experience. This tool can be

used for tuning, measuring motor settling time and overshoot, and measuring characteristics such as

resonances and backlash.

Tuner:

The tuner is designed to assist in optimizing a system’s performance. It provides a single interface for

editing filter parameters such as pole, notch and PID. The user can edit the controller’s torque limits,

voltage offset and feedforward parameters. The auto-crossover tuning algorithm is customizable, as well

as the tuner’s test signals. The tuner works seamlessly with GDK’s scope tool to provide an adaptable

tuning experience.

Viewer Tool:

The viewer tool allows customized real-time viewing of the controller’s I/O status, motor position and

more. This tool is convenient during troubleshooting and integration, since so many system parameters

can be viewed at once. The user can customize what is viewed by editing GDK’s XML

Setup Tool:

The setup tool allows the user to view, edit, backup and load controller memory such as parameters,

variables, arrays and the program buffer. This powerful tool enables the user to view all of the

controller’s important information, save it to a PC and load the information on multiple controllers, or

the same controller if a Master Reset was executed or new firmware was loaded. This tool will increase

productivity by saving time during integration and troubleshooting.

Terminal Tool:

The terminal tool provides easy communication to and from Galil controllers. It can be used to query the

controller’s parameters or execute a program. This tool can search command history, repeat or auto

repeat commands to print the terminal’s output.

Editor Tool:

The editor tool allows the user to write, save, download, upload and execute application code. With this

tool, multiple programs can be opened, edited and saved in one seamless user interface. The editor tool

includes toggling comments, a quick go to function and a find/replace mechanism.

New Communication Server:

GDK’s communications library, gclib, now uses a communications server by default. This software layer

works as a multiplexer to the hardware and allows multiple applications to communicate with the same

controller. Data that was once only available to one application is now distributed to all subscribing

clients. The benefit is that an application can leverage all communication features of a Galil controller

while an attached debugger, for example GDK, can also have full-featured access. Previously written

gclib code can use the server by omitting the “-d” switch in GOpen(). Install the latest version of gclib

and GDK to try the new server.

Zero-Backlash Servo Rotary Indexing Table from Sankyo Automation

The Sankyo Automation RollerDrive® Reducer is a precision gear reducer that uses a zero backlash roller gear mechanism. The unit is constructed from an input shaft and a turret (output shaft) that is assembled with roller followers. The roller followers are preloaded against a screw-like input shaft to eliminate backlash.High Speed Indexer

Sankyo servo indexing tables offer a constant lead cam with a servo motor drive for programmable motion. Sankyo servo indexing tables provide fast highly accurate motion, with the added capability to move medium to heavy loads. The preloaded cam & turret provides a high performance zero-backlash servo indexing table for all your automation needs.

The RU Series servo indexing table is available in 11 different sizes. These servo indexing tables come with varying ratios to maximize the motor’s torque capacity, speed requirements and enhance the overall accuracy. Special applications may require double reduction ratio of the internal cam and an additional reducer to provide large torque capacities or slower speed.

Features include:

  • Zero-Backlash -The RollerDrive uses a unique preloaded mechanism to completely eliminate backlash and deliver output motions that are faithfully true to input commands
  • Design -RollerDrive technology incorporates a cam with a high gear reduction to deliver large torque capacities with smaller servo motors
  • Second Reducer Option -Multiple reducer options keep the servo at optimal RPM speed
  • Rigidity Suitable for Machining Applications -An exclusive ouput turret bearing and cast-iron housing toleratres heavy vibrations associated with machine tool applications
  • Versatile for Retooling -RU Series can keep pace with the ever-changing tooling requirements
  • Short settling times – The RollerDrive provides fast highly accurate dynamic motion
