Motion Solutions

Motion Solutions, from Kollmorgen, contains a number of helpful motion control application aids and product specifications to assist design engineers in building economical, easy-to-apply motion control systems. The new version of Motion Solutions is now available by CD-ROM (free of charge) or by download (see below). You can either install just the sizing software or the entire package, which includes presentations, manuals and tutorials, and more.

Our new version includes:

  • Support for sizing AKM™, Cartridge DDR® and DDR motors
  • Technical information and manuals on the Digital MMC
  • The ability to size a lift cam application
  • Enhanced graphing capability of the motion profile
  • The ability to create a master/slave motion profile in sizing instead of a point-to-point profile
  • The ability to export your motion profile in a format that can be used directly by PiCPro® 

Motion Solutions Features:

  • Multiple mechanism types to choose from. Create a new application, do a quick search, or open an existing application.
  • Select the actuator to start defining a new application. You can select actuator type, drive product family, motor family, and reducer type.
  • Search results with available vs. required torque and load-to-motor inertia ratio.
  • Velocity or cam profile options including S-profile with variable jerk %.

Refer to the installation notes and instructions for converting existing project files for use with the new version of Motion Solutions.
