Advanced Motion Control

Advanced Trajectory Planner
The trajectory planner calculates how fast the machine can travel at any point during the cutting of a job. This has been upgraded to optimize the cutting time of the job, while still maintaining smooth, accurate motion. The internal math converts vectors and arcs from the plot files into “NURBS” to calculate the trajectory, maximizing speed and acceleration at all times without exceeding the limitations of the machine. In practical terms, this means faster cutting, reduced chatter,

S – Curve straight line moves
A “S Curve” trajectory replaces the trapezoidal trajectory, making straight line tool up moves faster, smoother, and able to handle higher acceleration. This higher acceleration means less time spent on point to point moves, without stressing the machine.

Auto tune of servo motors
Automatic tuning of the servo PID settings results in much better settings than possible by hand tuning, giving stiffer servo response, quieter operation. This results in better positional accuracy, for more accurate parts, a wider operating envelope for your tooling.
