Axis groups expand the B&R motion control concept with functionalities by combining several axes into groups. Tasks can therefore be executed with only one function block. The axis groups are programmed with mapp Technology and standardized PLCopen function blocks. The areas of application range are very versatile and range from single axis groups to CNC and robot applications to mixed forms with different axis types.

Path-controlled movements are the basis for precise and complex manufacturing. Generic Motion Control from B&R makes it easy to seamlessly integrate them into the machine application. The areas of application are very versatile and range from CNC machines to robot applications with high-speed pick-and-place tasks. The combination of axes into groups and the use of mapp function blocks considerably reduces programming and commissioning.
