Parker application: Rotating Tube Cutter


Motion Control Requirements:

  • Programmable I/O
  • Program storage
  • Position following
  • High acceleration and speed

Application Solution:

A single-axis servo controller/drive was chosen to solve this application. An external encoder monitors the tube output and sends this information back to the servo system. The servo system tracks the length of the tube that is being fed past the cutting blade. Once the appropriate amount of material has been fed past the blade, the servo accelerates the cutting device up to the speed of the tube, sends an output to start the cutter, and then follows the tube speed exactly.
