Mechatronic System Integration and Design

While today’s multi-discipline mechatronic systems significantly outperform legacy systems, they are also much more complex by nature, requiring close cooperation between multiple design disciplines in order to have a chance of meeting schedule requirements and first-pass success. Mechatronic system designs must fluently integrate analog and digital hardware — along with

 CNC Machine Axes : 3-Axis to 12-Axis

Computer Numerical Control (or CNC) machining combines the efficiency of computer programming with the customizability of subtractive manufacturing. The CNC controller works in conjunction with mechanical components such as CNC Machine Axes, motors, and drive components to automate the manufacturing process and maintain quality and repeatability. There are many different types

DEFINITION OF AXES ON A CNC LATHE

Axis Orientation Standard CNC lathes have two axes, X and Z. More axes are available. Special additional axes, such as C-axis and Y-axis, are designed for milling operations (live tooling) and require unique version of a standard CNC lathe. What is much more common for CNC lathes in industry, is

Degrees of freedom (physics and chemistry)

In physics and chemestry, a degree of freedom is an independent physical parameter in the formal description of the state of a physical system. The set of all states of a system is known as the system’s phase space, and the degrees of freedom of the system are the dimensions of the phase space. The location of a particle in three-dimensional space
