WHY IS SERVO TECHNOLOGY BETTER FOR MOTION SYSTEMS ?
At MFS, we strive for excellence and only use top-of-the-line materials in our motion platforms. Our extensive experience and understanding of advanced technologies allow us to ensure the highest standards at a competitive price.
Instead of relying on traditional stepper or AC-DC motors, we have made the deliberate choice to solely use servo motors. This technology provides numerous benefits, including unparalleled precision, lightning-fast response times, substantial torque outputs, energy efficiency, versatility, reliability, and seamless integration with other components
By choosing servo motors, we are able to deliver motion platforms that meet the highest standards and exceed expectations.
ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH SERVO TECHNOLOGY INCLUDE :
High precision control: Servo motors can be controlled with high precision, allowing for accurate positioning and repeatability. In other words, our servo motors are capable of accurate position control, allowing for repeatable and precise movements in even the most demanding application.
Fast response time: Servo motors have fast response times, making them suitable for high-speed applications.
High torque: Servo motors can generate high torque outputs, which makes them suitable for heavy loads and high-force applications.
Energy efficiency: Servo motors are more energy efficient than other types of motors, making them ideal for applications where power consumption is a concern.
Flexibility: Servo motors can be used in a variety of applications, including position control, speed control, and torque control, making them a versatile choice for motion control.
Robustness: Servo motor technology is robust and reliable, making it suitable for use in harsh environments and demanding applications.
Integration: Servo motors can be easily integrated with other components, such as sensors, controllers, and drives, to create a complete motion control system.
COMPARISON WITH OTHER TECHNOLOGY
Servomotors are generally used as a high performance alternative to the stepper motors.
Stepper motors have some inherent ability to control position, as they have built-in output steps. This often allows them to be used as an open-loop position control, without any feedback encoder, as their drive signal specifies the number of steps of movement to rotate. This lack of feedback though limits their performance, as a stepper motor can only drive a load that is well within its capacity, otherwise missed steps under load may lead to positioning errors.
The encoder and controller of a servomotor are an additional cost, but they optimize the performance of the overall system (for all of speed, power and accuracy) relative to the capacity of the basic motor.
With larger systems, where a powerful motor represents an increasing proportion of the system cost, servomotors have the advantage.
This leads to the fact that motion systems may be offered in two ranges, the low-priced range using stepper motors and the high-performance range using servomotors.
MFS definitely offers high performance and high fidelity at a great price !
