Multi-Axis vs. Single-Axis Servo Drive Systems
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.
