MultiAxis Servo Control Project

This MultiAxis project was delveloped on an Allen Bradley CompactLogix platform with SERCOS and consists of six physical axis and two virtual axis. 

The first virtual axis forms a master cam to which all the physicals axis are synchronized allowing the machine to achieve a runrate of 1800cycles/hour(2.5m/sec). 

The bed of the machine is transported on a rack and pinion driven by the lower roller. The Upper roller is geared to the lower roller to allow for process variations while the upper roller height is adjusted by two independent linear servo motors combined to form the second virtual axis. This allows the whole roller assembly to be raised and lower in process while allowing compensation to be applied across the rollers width to ensure an even pressure is applied across the roller width.
