Overview:

Today's industrial machinery is becoming increasingly electrical. Mechanical transmission components that drive motion within the machine are being replaced with electric servo motors and drives. It all started with a single stand-alone servo axis but the trend continued from there. Today, multiple-axis servo drive systems are what's "hot". Putting it all into perspective, this article compares multi-axis servo systems to the classic single axis servo drive. We will discuss performance and productivity advantages which truly become a win-win for machine builders and the product producers.
