Goal: Vibration damping in mechatronical systems through additional drives

In mechatronical drive systems, jerky linear and rotatory movements caused by the load’s weight can negatively impact the system’s dynamics and precision through creating vibrations in the machine frame. Typically, these vibrations are mitigated solely through the frame mass. This in turn creates the need to design large mechatronical systems to be very heavy.

A joint research project between JAT and Dresden’s Technical University sets out to change this. Started in June 2021, the project aims to integrate a momentum compensation process into the JAT servo amplifiers that was developed and patented by TU Dresden. It aims to increase dynamics while maintaining or also even increasing motion accuracies. In detail, the momentum created by the load’s mass is compensated through controlling additional drive units.

The ImPosAnt project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affair and Energy (Bundesministeriums für Wirtschaft und Energie).
