  • Did You Know? Labeling, Packaging, Food and Beverage

    Jun
    27

    StepSERVO closed loop integrated motors with the Step-Servo Quick Tuner software and built in Q Programmer are well suited for labeling, packaging, and food & beverage applications. StepSERVO integrated motors provide closed loop servo control of position, velocity and torque using high torque step motors. The result is higher acceleration for faster machine cycles, and the motors run cooler and quieter than open loop stepper systems.

  • Design Win: Applied Motion Products and Minarik

    Jun

    A premier postal sorting machine OEM in the northeastern United States has developed a machine to automatically sort irregularly sized mail items that traditionally have been sorted by hand. Representatives from Minarik Corporation (part of Kaman Automation, Inc.) and Applied Motion Products began working with the OEM early in the design stages, providing guidance on motor sizing and selection as well as prototype units for research and development purposes. Today the OEM has moved into production with the design, having already shipped several machines, and the StepSERVO integrated motors that have been implemented in the design are performing excellently, with more than 2000 motors in the field so far.

  • Did You Know? Close an analog position loop

    May

    This Did You Know? article covers the process of closing a simple analog position loop using a Q program and an Applied Motion stepper drive with differential inputs.

    Some step motor applications require an operator to adjust a rotary valve or air vane and cannot use a homing sequence on power-up. The operator just needs to turn a control knob and have the load move to the correct location.

  • Congratulations to Our Top Performing Distributors

    May
    17

    In conjunction with the expansion of our successful line of StepSERVO™ closed loop integrated motors, we recently conducted a sales competition for our North American distribution partners. The competition was designed to award the individual distributor salespeople who successfully installed the greatest number of StepSERVO integrated motors over a six-month time period. The competition was a huge success, with a higher-than-expected number of distributor salespeople participating and a wide range of new customers for these high performance products.

  • Did You Know? Product lines that support Q Programming

    Apr
    26

    Many of our customers take advantage of the benefits of Q Programming, our text-based programming language designed for simple yet powerful programming of single axes. Q Programming incorporates commands for various kinds of motion, I/O control and sequencing, and math functions that enable users to create all kinds of motion control sequences and algorithms, from the most basic to very advanced.

  • Energy Efficient Step Motors

    Apr

    Users of step motors will praise their simplicity, excellent positioning skills, and economy. They may also lament certain characteristics of step motor performance. For example, traditional step motor systems run open loop which means the drive electronics supply constant current to the motor whether there is a demand for torque from the load or not. What happens to that current when there’s no torque demand? It is lost as heat.

  • Did You Know? The FAST Telescope in China
