Over the past decade, Polystar has grown in both size and chemistry complexity. Simultaneously, so has the need for the company to more closely control product consistency and safety.
CHARLOTTE, NC—Bosch Rexroth has introduced a software platform, called Open Core Engineering, that allows OEMs to access PLCs and motion controllers from applications based on high-level languages.
The hub features point-to-point technology.
CHARLOTTE, NC—Bosch Rexroth Corp. has introduced an app that enables engineers to access the company’s line of linear motion, hydraulic, pneumatic, controls and tightening systems through their iPhones or iPads.
CHARLOTTE, NC—Precise motion controllers are certainly important in advanced manufacturing equipment. But just as the performance of a super athlete depends on a combination of brains and physical ability, so do high-precision linear motion systems. Without mechanical systems capable of taking full advantage of the instructions supplied by the motion controller, many processes would be impossible.
SCHAUMBURG, IL—Many motion control applications such as machining spindles and scanning equipment require more than just position values from the motion feedback device. It is also imperative to know what velocity the axis is running, as there may be a need to control the velocity from one speed to another rapidly, or to maintain a constant speed because other operations and triggers need to occur based on the constant velocity.
