About the webinar

What’s behind every great robot? A great motor or even multiple motors, for starters. It also involves the bearings, cables, drives, and controllers, and in some cases, linear actuators. Whether your robot is being deployed on a factory floor, in an operating room, or in one of the now-famous drones, it’s these technologies that serve as the differentiators. In fact, robotics can be in applications that range from the very coarse to the very fine. For that reason, the types of motors and other components must also vary widely.

Attend this webinar and learn about:

  • The different components that are available, specifically for robotics applications
  • How the components differ
  • How you can choose the most appropriate parts for your robotic application
  • The efficiencies that can be gained by making the right choice

New Webinar. Servo Solutions For Mobile Automation Challenges

Live Webinar Tuesday April 21, 2015 11:00am EST, presented by Advanced Motion Controls & Electromate

With automation expanding out of the factory, machine builders are faced with a varying set of new challenges.  Mobile platforms, such as unmanned systems, are expected to operate in extreme environments and carry their own power source; all while being light weight and compact.

To meet the current and future needs of the market, enabling technologies need to be applied and discovered.  At the forefront of the enabling technologies are servo drive controllers.

Servo controllers not only make a robot or mobile platform move, they can also be solutions to the other design requirements.  A servo is an integral component to any mobile solution and can help with power efficiency, communication, agility and dexterity.  This webinar will touch on the challenges presented to robot designers and how servo drives can make them successful.

Webinar Presenter: Shane Beilke, Advanced Motion Controls: Executive Team – Product Strategy

Stepper Motor Primer

Stepper Motors from Electromate

Stepper Motors from Electromate

There are three basic types of step motors: variable reluctance, permanent magnet and hybrid.  A hybrid step motor is a simple low cost means of providing good motion performance.  Step motors are electromechanical devices that work by dividing shaft rotation into discrete distances called steps. Basically, they are brushless motors which include permanent magnet variable reluctance and hybrid types.  Most step motors are hybrids and feature 200 steps per revolution (1.8 degrees). The magnetic structure of the motor is designed to be incremental in nature i.e one pulse to the motor causes the armature to move one complete step.  At power up, a hybrid step motor could rotate up to ±3.6 degrees in either direction due to the rotor having 200 natural detent positions….

Pre-recorded Webinar. EtherCAT as a Master Machine Control Tool

YouTube 50minute Video by Galil Motion Control

Topics include an overview of the communication scheme, physical layout and applications where EtherCAT is the right solution.

There is an increasing demand in the automation and motion control industries for a localized motion control solution that can coordinate motion between multiple remote components. Previously, field bus protocols such as Modbus or Ethernet/IP have been implemented to address remote I/O connectivity. Although successful in moving data across automation networks, these protocols lacked the real time performance necessary for a distributed motion control system.

The EtherCAT communication protocol provides a high speed, low overhead communication scheme that allows efficient, deterministic communication between motion controller and remote components. Based on CANOpen and streamlined specifically for point to point transmission of real time data, the EtherCAT standard is quickly becoming the preferred choice for centralized control of tightly coupled motion between remote components. This presentation is aimed at designers of automation and motion control systems with a basic understanding of Ethernet/IP and EtherCAT communications. Topics will include an overview of the communication scheme, physical layout and applications where EtherCAT is the right solution.
