Servo Drive Trends for 2020

2020 is shaping up to be an exciting year for new servo drive technologies and capabilities. Continuing with the trend from the past few years, servo drives in 2020 will have even more power and more features packed into the micro-sized form factor that’s becoming popular in the industry. Mobile robotics and tightly integrated machines

How to Select a Servo Drive

When searching for a servo drive, you’ll be able to find thousands of options. ADVANCED Motion Controls offers almost 200 servo drives alone. But finding one that meets all the needs for your application can be a bit more complex. Servo drives have different power ranges, sizes, network options, intelligence, form factors, digital features, and

Types of Motors in Motion Control

We might not manufacture motors at ADVANCED Motion Controls, but we work with them every day and build servo drives to make them run, so you might say we know a thing or two about them. We take a lot of pride in being able to serve any application, and that means we have a

Motion Control in 3D Printing

3D printing used to be an abstract concept. It was something out of science fiction. Or it was what a child thought would happen when they put their favorite toy under the lid of their parent’s copier and expected another one to come out…no? Just me? Today, 3D printing is very much a real thing.

Servo Drive Trends for 2019

The year is half over and it seems like a great time to review the servo drive trends we’ve seen so far in 2019 and to go over what we expect to see for the rest of the year. Latest Trends Smaller Miniaturization has been an ongoing trend for at least 15 years and so

Servo Drives for the Medical Industry

Servo drives for medical devices need to meet stringent requirements to be cleared to work in hospitals. That’s why ADVANCED Motion Controls manufactures servo drives for MRI and diagnostic imaging that are a breed apart. Medical devices and the servo drives installed in them need to meet high standards. Primarily, servo drives must be reliable

What is On-the-fly Mode Switching?

When dealing with a digital servo drive system, the last thing you want is network bus traffic and interference impeding your machine’s ability to operate efficiently. Smart servo drives can take the load off the controller and the network by closing the feedback loops on their end instead. However, different tasks are best suited for

You Design The Machine; We’ll Take Care of the Servo Control

Servo drives are not simple pieces of equipment, and they certainly aren’t everyone’s game. Some machine-building companies think they can save money by designing their own servo drives in-house, but the time and monetary investment often isn’t worth it. In many cases, we’ve seen these companies come to us because their own design lacked the
