Anything is Possible with Servo-Driven Devices

The implementation of servo-driven devices can expand machine capabilities to new levels

Manufacturers are investing significant time and money into making machines easier to design and program, catching them up to speed with flashier artificial intelligence and augmented reality systems. A key element in this process includes the implementation of servo-controlled devices.

In older designs, a repetitive-motion machine would have a control system containing a central drive shaft with cam-driven accessories. This system moved in a pattern dependent on the main cycle shaft’s position, causing the device to travel the same path every cycle.

Changing to servo-driven devices, however, can help achieve multiple motion profiles and further expand machine capabilities.
