HEIDENHAIN MULTI – Dimensional Measurement Technology

Posted 9 months ago

Linear encoders are used in many motion control systems as direct positional feedback for the control loop. Conventional linear encoders can measure only one degree of freedom, rendering them blind to unavoidable errors in other directions. In multi-axis systems, an error in one axis carries over into the other axes, thereby affecting the entire motion system. Error in the first axis changes the actual position of the second encoder, and so on, yet these errors are not normally measured.

HEIDENHAIN – Safe and Accurate Robot Positioning

Posted 10 months ago

Robots are called upon to perform increasingly demanding tasks, including high-accuracy machining operations on aircraft fuselages and other large components, or positioning tasks as cobots in direct collaboration with humans. In these applications, exact motion control of the robot arm is the critical factor. Designed specifically for use in robotics, new encoders from HEIDENHAIN, AMO and RENCO enable the motion control needed to expand your range of applications.

Solutions from Ruland: Beam couplings for robotics applications

Posted 11 months ago

Ruland beam couplings are ideal for surgical, warehouse, and industrial robotics due to their increased torque and torsional stiffness and ability to accommodate all forms of misalignment. Ruland manufactures four-beam couplings for encoders and six-beam couplings for light-duty power transmission, such as connecting a stepper or servo motor to a lead screw. This allows robotic designers to design a standard beam coupling into most systems.
