Precision motion refers for automated movements that require a high degree of control and repeat-ability. This need arises for various reasons, including product performance, higher reliability, serviceability, and miniaturization. Generally, mechanical cams and pneumatic cylinders are replaced by intelligent actuators, electric servos, and robots to aid in the configuration of the movement through various parameters and ensure the precision required.
At PROD, our goal is to provide the most cost effective solution that ensures the precision and control mandated by the equipment requirements. We readily integrate from single axis robocylinders to 6 axis robots and anything in between. Our engineering staff employs a wide tool set for the sizing, selection, and optimization of these actuators that are employed from servo presses to vision guided robots performing assembly operations.
