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.

Viewers are encouraged to contact Zaber Technologies to discuss their application's requirements.
