Part 3 of 3: Superposition of Motion Profiles



      This is the final paper of three delving into advanced electronic gearing topics in motion control.  The first two, Tension Control on Spindle Wheel and Positional Correction on Color Print Rollers in Offset Printing, dealt with both low and high bandwidth corrections by correcting for frequency and phase.

      This paper will cover how to apply electronic gearing to superimpose two motion profiles for a single axis.  Three different examples will be discussed showing the many different applications where adding two motion profiles together can simplify the system’s design.
