Motion and Drive Systems 2018


Date(s): February 08 - 09, 2018
Location: Orlando, FL , United-States

Motor & Drive Systems 2018 is focused on the latest technical advancements impacting the design and integration of motor, drive systems and motion control for manufacturing, industrial and packaging, as well as automotive/EV applications. The 15th annual conference will be held February 8-9, 2018 in Orlando, Fla.
Conference topics will include improving motor efficiency and reliability, regulatory and safety issues, testing standards and programs, emerging and high growth applications, developing and pairing motor & drive systems and improving loss prediction and calculation. Join leading OEM design engineers and discover how new technologies are improving performance, energy efficiency and providing cost savings in a variety of applications.

Tales from the Trenches: The Evolving Journey of Motion Control Design

As economic historian Paul David once stated, much of the credit to the 1920s productivity boom in American manufacturing was that manufacturers had finally figured out how to use technology (namely electricity) that was nearly 50 years old. Some argue that we are still trying to grasp the productivity gains promised with the advent of the programmable controllers and personal computing in the late 1960s and early 1970s of the 3rd Industrial Revolution. With the fourth revolution revolution arguably already here, the future of motion control and robotics will continue to merge as the machine intelligence advances resulting in success for those manufactures on the leading edge of technology advancement. Join Darrell as he explores how technology and software have evolved the customer and engineer journey in machine control design by discussing: initial design validation steps that can be used to develop design scope; simulation and digital twin benefits in optimization and risk management; removing the linear constraint – simple and complex kinematic motion design benefit; implementation of new technology in the machine build, test, start-up and run off phase to reduce cost and time.
