When manufacturers seek to increase throughput in an automation system—a packaging line, a machine tool or a pick-and-place operation—one technical issue they can quickly encounter is unwanted vibration. Depending on the process, this can require intermittent deceleration to avoid damaging the machine or product.
This useful and informative Technical Paper from Bosch Rexroth provides a detailed investigation into these challenges, and discusses how Adaptive Systems motion control technology provides a solution: drive-based intelligence that preventatively applies vibration damping to sustain increased throughput and extend machine life.
This free Technical Paper (available as a downloadable PDF) offers unique insight into ways to enable increased productivity without sacrificing product quality. Adaptive Systems vibration damping, available with Rexroth’s IndraMotion MLD platform, could potentially allow up to 50% increased throughput.
