Unexpected motion can ruin products and lead to dangerous situations. But what if you could remove unwanted motion while decreasing motor size and increasing performance? 

Impossible? Not when you understand the effects of inertia on system performance. Traditionally, inertia matching has relied on standardized rules. But modern inertia matching uses improved servo motors, performance tuning and high-resolution feedback to decreased motor size while improving control of machine movement. 

Join us for this educational session where we will demonstrate a system with unwanted motion and walk you through the modern inertia matching steps that can increase its performance. 

In this session you’ll learn: 

  • How to remove small movements that affect performance 
  • How to identify the unwanted movement through the scope tool and Bode plot imaging  
  • How to optimize system performance with the servo performance tuner 
Increasing Performance with Modern Inertia Matching
