Motion-to-Process Synchronization

Pre-Ignition

Increase Throughput by Activating Events Prior to Motion Completion

Many motion control applications such as high-speed pick and place machines are centered around maximizing throughput. Any process steps that can be shortened or combined can help to improve throughput. ACS’ pre-ignition feature enables the machine to initiate events at a dynamically programmable amount of time before the end of motion. This is an ideal solution for ensuring that no time is spent waiting for a vacuum tool to pick/place a part at the desired location.
