More and more mechanical axis couplings are being replaced by electronically linked axes. Everything from simple coupling gears to cam profile applications can be implemented using mapp technology components, which are based on PLCopen. High-performance drive control solutions from B&R ensure that coupled movement sequences are performed with the highest degree of precision.

  • Linear couplings with gear ratio
  • Dynamic phase shifting
  • Electronic cam profiles
  • Compensation mechanisms
  • Configuring and using Cam Profile Automats
  • Using mapp technology multi-axis functions

In addition to single-axis functions, the PLCopen standard also offers functions for the coordinated movement of multiple axes in an axis group. By implementing mapp technology, using them is made easier. Drive coupling can be carried out quickly with this.
