Table Positioning

Drive application: Table positioning
Positioning is one of the most common conveyor and logistic applications, e.g. as used in storage and retrieval units. Positioning is used wherever material must be moved from one position to another.

Table Positioning
If an application includes up to 32 different target positions, the MOVIDRIVE® technology version performs this task using the “Table Positioning” application module. Movement takes place subject to position control and the target position is reached to the precise increment.

Table positioning applications can be found in the following sectors:

The solution with MOVIDRIVE®
Set parameters instead of programming
Use the “Table Positioning” application module (in the application version of the MOVIDRIVE® operating software MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio). A user-friendly interface guides you through the process of setting the parameters. All you have to do is enter the parameters you need for your application: for example, gear ratios, travel speeds, driving diameters and target positions. The application module uses this information to create the control program and loads it into the inverter.

Wide range of functions
No matter how large the variety of applications for table positioning, the wide range of functions provided by the application module provides the right solution for every task.

Choice of control via fieldbus or terminals.
