April 1, 2005
Machine builders and OEMs can use Motion Assistant Version 1.2 to interactively prototype motion control applications and convert their projects into ready-to-run code in C or LabView.

Motion Assistant features a graphical point-and-click interface with 3D-visualization capabilities for creating motion control applications using stepper, servo and piezo actuators. With the software’s new smart contouring functionality, users can improve the performance of profile-cutting machinery for woodworking, metal-working and foam-cutting applications. Motion Assistant Version 1.2 is priced from $795. Engineers who wish to explore the software’s latest features can download a fully functional evaluation version of Motion Assistant 1.2 at the Web site listed below. With the evaluation software, they can use code-generation functions to convert their motion control projects to LabView or C code.
