You cannot just start on the mechanics, pick the motors, pick the drives, pick the controls, pick the HMI. First you must understand everything all together. Since we're talking about mechanics, there's a few things we need to kind of jump on right off the bat. To figure out the holistic approach, there's a lot more to it.

A very important factor to keep in mind when sizing your gantry system is the cable management and cable lengths you'll need. If you think about it, we're going to need cables to span throughout every axis of motion.

Back in Episode 6, I explained to you the different types of linear mechanics. This included ballscrews, belt & pulleys, linear motors and even rack & pinion. I get the question all the time: which linear mechanics do I use?

I am continuing my conversation with you about EMC installation. We talked about electrical noise, where it comes from and how we control it. We talked about the reasons for Mains filters. Now I'm going to talk a little bit about how to select Mains filters and unfortunately, it's a real black art.
Impedance heating systems act much like standard heating circuits, except the resistor is the pipe itself. This is accomplished when a small amount of AC voltage is applied across the terminals. The resulting impedance of the system generates heat on the pipe. The control panel for an impedance system provides power and control. However, the step down transformer is what provides the reduced voltage, 30VAC or less, to the pipe. This rating stays within OSHA and NEC limits.
A new way of thinking about nitrogen. A new source of sustainability. Advanced on-site generator producing nitrogen gas from compressed air to produce all the nitrogen you need.
