Rexroth Solution:

  • Use Adaptive Systems technology, software-based motion control that can avoid and damp vibrations
  • Use avoiding technology to filter the vibrations caused by high dynamic movements
  • Use damping technology, which uses external feedback to employ counteracting kinetic energy to settle vibration

Key Insights & Considerations:

  • Utilizing Adaptive Systems technology can increase process throughput by as much as 50 percent.
  • Identify applications where vibration control can boost throughput
  • Understand how oscillations occur and how they can be controlled
  • Determine and implement the technologies needed to control slosh, vibration and sway
