Synchronized Position-Force Control for Multi-Ram Axes

The company now offers an enhanced motion control-synchronizing feature for press applications. The electronic position-force synchronization offered by the RMC150 now allows for lighter machines to accurately control total force while keeping the ram positions matched to within a few thousandths of an inch. If an application requires two axes, the RMC75 controller will deliver this capability. For larger applications, the RMC151E controller can handle up to six axes if the force information is obtained via pressure sensors (two per ram) or up to eight axes of position-force control if load cells are a viable option.
