Drives and Diagnosis
Drive Systems and Components
Drive Systems have a long tradition at WZL. Besides dimensioning, analysis and benchmarking of drive concepts, the developement of energy efficient drive systems, new control strategies and sensor systems is also a topic in our research. Our activities are not limited to machine tools, but also inlcude handling and packaging systems and special solutions like magnetic bearings.
- Energy efficiency for drives
- Linear magnetic bearings
- Redundant actuation to increase the dynamic of a feed drive axis
- Impulse decoupling of linear direct drives to reduce mechanical oscillations in the machine base
- Control structures for machines with parallel kinematics (PKM)
