XYZ Gantry Demo

Submitted by on Thu, 2018-10-25 16:29

The XYZ gantry demo features 4 sets of Step-Servo drives and motors running coordinated motion in three axes. There are two motor and drive sets on the X and X’ axes, one on the Y axis, and a fourth on the Z axis. The synchronized motion commands are sent to the axes over the EtherCAT network.

Step-Servo closed-loop technology improves every aspect of step motor performance by creating a peak torque range that increases acceleration and machine throughput. This is done while reducing overall current consumption in the motor for less heating and greater efficiency. 

Products used on this demo include the following:
