  • Get a look at the newest mechatronics technologies and learn where to apply them.




Session Descriptions

Motion Control – Achieve More with Smarter, More Flexible Machines
Are you looking to reach value faster while becoming better integrated and more flexible? Learn how to best utilize Rockwell Automation’s motion control portfolio – including Kinetix and Armor Kinetix — to help you create the capable, scalable and connected machines that drive your business forward. With the global reach of Rockwell Automation, you can be sure that your devices are supported and serviceable across your entire enterprise.

Advantages of Servo Gearing
Only about one-third of motor-driven motion applications take advantage of servo gearing.  Learn how to implement servo gearing to help with size-restrained applications, increase torque and reduce speed while maximizing cost savings. In addition, we will discuss how all-in-one gearmotors can be utilized to further save space while eliminating components and providing added stiffness and precision to your application.

How Can Independent Cart Technology (ICT) Help You?
Independent cart technology is a new approach to linear motors. Instead of the traditional gears, chains and belts, ICT uses magnets to precisely control motion with frictionless propulsion. Learn how ICT increases machine productivity, flexibility and sustainability.  We will highlight key applications for utilizing this technology and use cases showing its benefits.

Electro-Hydraulic Actuators – Fusing Power & Precision
Electro-hydraulic actuators combine the best features of hydraulic power with the precision of servo control and can be used in a variety of applications.  Learn how electro-hydraulic actuators allow for IoT interface functions such as predicative maintenance and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) monitoring.

Unified Robotic Control
As production demands continue to rise, manufacturers must be prepared for the needs of tomorrow with capable, flexible solutions today. You will learn how, utilizing Logix control, integrating robots into your production systems can simplify the path to more connected, intelligent deployments. And with seamless connection to the latest digital tools, it is easier than ever to create efficiency and drive innovation never before possible.

Linear Motion Solutions to Maximize Uptime & Reduce Operational Costs
Hydraulic cylinders have been widely used in automation equipment for decades, but advancements with electric rod actuators have spurred debate over which technology offers the best solution. We will review a variety of factors affecting each technology’s performance and cost: motion control capabilities; system components and footprint; force and speed capabilities; temperature; device life/maintenance; data collection; efficiency/utility costs; leaks/environmental concerns; and more. We will also cover how to most efficiently size actuators.

Reduce the Couplings Backlash for Highly Accurate Positioning
High performance motion systems can place challenging demands on connecting elements like shaft couplings. Among other things, they must withstand dynamic motion and large drive torque variations while precisely transferring rotation. We will cover how to employ low or zero backlash couplings where little to no backlash can be tolerated. And discuss how to prevent damage and downtime using safety couplings to protect against excessive torque spikes.
