Zaber Technical Article: Driving Parallel Axes with Lockstep Movement
Using lockstep allows customers to create a wider variety of gantry systems by removing the need for mechanical corrections between the parallel drives.
When creating a multi-axis system, the user must incorporate all important requirements e.g. loading and travel.
When cantilevered loads become a large consideration, gantries are often the best solution and have several methods of implementation. Creating a gantry with digitally synchronized parallel axes that use Zaber's lockstep feature is a flexible solution that enables a variety of configurations.
