Motion Control • Motion Control Systems

Systems that use some type of hydraulic pump, linear actuator or actuator to control position or velocity of other components.

A motion control system is comprised of a motion controller, drive or amplifier, actuator, one or more feedback sensors, and various mechanical components – including gears, shafting, ball screws, belts, linkages, and liner and rotational bearings.Common control functions of a motion control systems include: velocity control, position control, pressure or force control, trans-mutational mapping, and electronic gearing. Motion control systems are found within the semiconductor, medical, laboratory, packaging, laser, solar panel, flat panel inspection and repair, aerospace, life science, industrial actuation, commercial and military aircraft, armored vehicle, and shipboard landing system industries.
