Promicon Systems



Uncompromisingly for demanding tasks

For demanding tasks in the current mechanical engineering it becomes apparent again and again that solutions with standard components are very difficult to realize or with compromises or sometimes not at all. Especially in the use of highly dynamic servo drives borders often become visible, which can only be overcome by ingenious control technology and very short reaction time.

VariMotion of Promicon provides the answer to these challenges. This multi-axis system is specifically designed for tasks, which do not allow compromises.

Fusion of motion, logic and communication

At VariMotion the disciplines motion, logic and communication are closely coupled, because this is the only way to achieve maximum reaction speed. An efficient cross communication ensures that information and events can be transmitted free of delay between the different functional units. Hereby the performance of the machine elements is optionally used and a harmonious entire process is created.

Networked drives with maximum performance

The backbone of VariMotion is the vNET drive network. This network is specifically designed for speed, precision, availability and robustness. It has a 250-µs cycle time and, at 20 ns, the isochronous jitter is almost negligible. The central motion controller in the head module guarantees a high level of accuracy during the coordinated movement of several axes.
