Positioning systems: movement in the market

Positioning systems: movement in the market
Aerotech will present itself at the SPS - smart production solutions show taking place from 26th to 28th in Nuremberg. The manufacturer of high-performance motion control and positioning systems focuses on its 'Automation1' control platform, which, among other things, demonstrates in a demo system force regulation with the ACT115DL linear high-performance actuator. The motion control platform functions as a complete machine control with all components and thus offers much more than a pure 'motion control.'
