Growth Drivers

In manufacturing facilities, the usage of robotics has significantly expanded. They are used for material handling, tasks including processing, and assembly and inspection. For effective operation, robotics uses a variety of motion control techniques. Due to their ability to simplify manufacturing processes, industrial robots are becoming more and more in demand. All industrial robots have some sort of motion control, which helps them perform better, cost less, and perform new functions in production processes. Assembling, packaging, picking and arranging, and palletizing are just a few of the tasks that industrial robots can do. The motion controller needs to be interfaced with the robot controller in order to carry out these tasks. Motion controllers, servo motors, and other electronic parts like DC motors frequently play a big part in how a robot moves.


Designing machines that are inexpensive and compact is a problem for OEMs and system integrators. The availability of the components utilized to design the machine has an impact on this problem. Dedicated indexers, PC-based motion controllers or PLCs, stepper or servo motor drives, motors, and accessories like proximity sensors, cable harnesses, and other mounting hardware make up a motion control system. The space available on a manufacturing floor or lab bench increases with machine size, while design complexity increases with machine size. This increases the likelihood that issues will develop and necessitate time for field service personnel to troubleshoot and fix during the initial setup.


Systems for industrial communication exchange data and information instantly. The majority of real-time Ethernet standards call for a unique IP with MAC extensions, which give the communication protocols the ability to schedule, prioritize, and synchronize the cyclical data exchange between the controller and the field device network.

Manufacturers are emphasizing the development of novel motion controller types that may be employed effectively in accordance with the region-, industry-, and application-specific needs in order to keep up with the constantly expanding industries of medicine and semiconductors and electronics.

Through programming in the TwinCAT 3 engineering environment, zero-pressure accumulation logic in the firmware, and high-performance EtherCAT industrial Ethernet connection, these controllers are employed for the best conveyor control possible. Thus, it is anticipated that a large demand for motion control goods and services would result from the growing usage of modern communications systems.
