Tittle:
Patented equipment for control and positioning of axes in numerical control machines
Summary:
An Italian company operating in the field of industrial engineering, is offering a new patented apparatus and equipment for the resetting and positioning of the axes of numerical control machines. It provides for safety, reliability and efficiency in mechatronic systems. The company is interested in establishing partnerships with advanced machinery manufacturing companies for licensing agreements.
Description:
A small Italian engineering company operating in the North-East of Italy, with consolidated know-how and advanced technical skills in the design and development of high-tech products and services for the automation industry, offers advanced solutions for mechatronic applications in different automated industrial fields.
The company has recently introduced an industrial invention, with patent granted in Italy, Taiwan, South Africa, and Tunisia (and registered in other 22 countries in the world) consisting in an apparatus and equipment for the resetting and positioning of axes of numerical control machines. The system can:
- detect and measure the zero point of axes to be used as reference for absolute positioning/movements (both linear and rotative), and
- convert a relative/incremental measurement system (encoder) to an absolute one allowing full motion control on position/speed/acceleration of the machine.
The system, compatible with each motion control and actuator currently available on the market, is useful to achieve absolute positioning of any moving part and can be used in many industrial fields and applications. The axis may be linear, angular or interpolated. Interpolated axes are usually used in advanced mechanics with moving parts, such as for example automotive, printing machines and robotics sectors.
The apparatus includes: motion actuators, a control unit, a switching sensor, a switching bar. The patent includes also a calibration procedure, which is necessary for the machine operation.
The technology provides for more safety, reliability and efficiency of mechatronic systems and contribute to the enhancement of the machine performance by reducing the hardware component, the wear, and the required time.
The Italian company is interested in contacting and establishing an international partnership with industrial manufacturing companies producing, supplying or distributing linear motion guides/systems or buying motion control and measuring systems for automation in different fields of application (e.g. packaging, printing, automobile industries, etc.). Partnership can take the form of a license agreement.
The international collaboration may help the Italian company to further broaden its international focus and get the opportunity to penetrate a new market area through agreements with the international partners.
Target market areas are: Europe, Taiwan, Tunisia and South Africa.
Advantages and Innovations:
The offered technology solution, based on a patented invention, allows to reduce the number of required components and operations and enables repeatability, high performance, accuracy and security. It is also able to speed up times for the machines resetting, as well as the positioning/handling of equipment and machines.
The system, necessary for the realisation of absolute movements, is adaptable and can be used in many different industrial sectors. The apparatus enables to choose the positioning of the resetting equipment from a relative/incremental to an absolute measurement system.
