Motion Control provides step, torque, and speed modes.

Motion Control provides step, torque, and speed modes.

When applied to step motors, MDrive AccuStep System prevents loss of synchronization due to transient or continued overload, extreme acceleration or deceleration, or excessive slew speed. One version includes integrated step motor, microstepping driver, and internal encoder, while another version adds fully programmable motion controller. Applications include point-to-point positioning, conveyor...

Galil Motion Controllers Used in Waterjet Machines from CNC Machines International

April 22, 2009 When water is concentrated into a high-pressure stream shot from a waterjet at 60,000 psi, it can cut and shape a wide array of materials like cloth, foam, glass, plastic, and rubber as fast as 100 ft. per minute. Water can even cut through harder materials like wood, granite, stone, aluminum and steel. One application of waterjet cutters is to cut designs into artificial turf and...

Hybrid Control regulates condensing/non-condensing boilers.

Hybrid Control regulates condensing/non-condensing boilers.

Mini-MOD-CNC automatically mixes and matches non-condensing boiler operation and condensing boiler operation to optimize efficiency of combined (hybrid) system. It also allows for mixed control of modulating and staging boilers, since condensing boilers typically have modulating burners and non-condensing boilers typically have staging or on/off burners. Control automatically switches to high...
