There are many challenges when designing a motion control system. One challenge that can overwhelm many engineers is nonlinear mechanics. These mechanics can make tuning a motion control system difficult. At Galil, we pride ourselves in being able to provide intuitive solutions for these nonlinear or unorthodox mechanics. This webinar will discuss six examples of applications with nonlinear mechanics, their inherent challenges, and the tools/solutions to address these challenges.


Below are the six examples of applications with nonlinear mechanics:

  1. High-friction axis

  2. Mechanics with backlash

  3. Servo axis involving a spring

  4. Axis exposed to large and unpredictable outside forces

  5. Mechanics where inertia varies with position

  6. Hydraulic axis
