Motion controls are also known as servomechanisms or servos. These are a sub-set of automation, assisting a system and process to ease transition of plants and offices towards modernization. These control systems are used for three things: quick response from an input command, control over speed and position of an object and measurement of the object’s position and motion. Printing presses, packaging equipment and computer numeric controlled (CNC) machine tool equipment are examples of devices equipped with motion control systems.

A motion control system is made from five fundamental architectures:
• Mechanical elements such as ball screws, linkages, bearings, gears, belts and shafts are used to attain an actuator’s desired motion.
• Actuators are needed to provide output motion to users. These can be an air cylinder, an electric motor, a hydraulic pump or a linear actuator.
• Amplifiers are used to convert a motion controller’s control signal to a higher voltage or electric current.
• Motion controllers are made to provide the desired equipment motion profile and output. They are also used to create a velocity feedback loop.
• Feedback sensors are used to determine a velocity control loop by using resolvers and optical encoders.

A load’s friction and inertia are taken into consideration when determining the requirements for motion control system. A torque wrench can be used to estimate a load friction while the analyzation of a mechanical linkage system is done to get the load’s inertia.

The Green Book has the latest on motion controls in Singapore. The site has a collection and listing of company information, locally, that consumers can check out when getting the right product, parts and accessories for automation purposes.
