Automatic material cutting applications require smooth coordinated motion between multiple axes to make high quality cuts. Material cutting is also a very competitive industry. Our customer chose to use our RMP EtherCAT motion controller because it delivers in performance, reliability, and price.
Motion Controller Features
Gantry Control Algorithm – Our motion controller includes a gantry control algorithm that links the two X axes together and allows our customer to cut shapes while gearing the gantry to a conveyor axis.
Streaming PT Motion – Our motion controller includes several very powerful streaming motion options which enabled our customer to stream coordinated multi-axis moves to all the axes in order to cut out intricate shapes while the material conveyor is in motion.
Performance and Reliability – Our customer trusted our high-performance motion controller because it provides the reliability and performance required for their machine at a competitive price point.
Services Provided by RSI
Hardware Selection – RSI assisted with the selection of the servo system including the motors, drives, and gearheads to achieve the cutting speed and accelerations necessary for the application budget.
Software Development – RSI assisted our customer with several software development features including cutting shapes while the material is moving on the conveyor and converting two-dimensional cut files into streaming motion arrays.
