Benefits of Robotic Motion Control

In today’s industrial environment, more and more production facilities are taking advantage of robotic automation in the form of motion control. Manufacturers who are making the switch are capable of seeing increases in quality, efficiency, and flexibility.

Quality

By making the switch from a manual process to an automated one using motion control, many manufacturers see an increase in quality. Machines are capable of working in non-stop, precise movements. This translates to a more repeatable product. It also frees up a human worker to focus on more important tasks.

Efficiency

Precision motion control also increases the speed at which tasks are capable of being performed. Which effectively leads to an increase in throughput. And all manufacturers know that more product with the same resources equates to more profit. Motion control systems benefit not just the quality, but your bottom line, too.

Motion Control FAQs

"Motion control" isn't a specific part or robot. Rather, it's a collection of parts and software that work together to create a controllable movement machine. Typically, motion control systems are created through a combination of a controller, a motor drive, a motor (a stepper or servo), and a linear actuator.

A motion controller creates the trajectories an engine must perform. In short, it tells the motor what to do and how to do it. It accomplishes this through understanding the movement necessary to transfer something to a targeted, predetermined position (in a predetermined orientation). It is the brain of a motion control system.

If you're running into motion-related issues in production, we'd be happy to take a look at your process. Our engineers have implemented motion control robots into production processes for dozens of industries over the years.
