Motion Control Calculations

Greetings!

Thank you for visiting.

This is an Application Engineering Resource Site for

Sizing Motors for Motion Control Applications

To help you get started, please refer to the Menu Bar on the left. (If you do not see a vertical menu bar with page numbers on the left side of this screen, click the "three line icon" in the upper left corner of this screen for it to appear. )

Each Page contains a Motion Control Calculation Sheet as described in the listing below.

First, select whichever Page matches your needed Calculation Procedure. Allow a few seconds for a Sketch and Photograph to appear.

Second, when the Page appears, move the Pointer across the page until an Icon appears in the upper right corner. Click that Icon and allow a few seconds for the Sheet to open.

Third, scroll down the Sheet and insert the required data in those Column E Cells where there is an adjacent "Insert >" notation in a Column D Cell.

Each Procedure is intended to be self-explanatory. Also, each is intended to be "transparent" by showing every calculation step in full view to permit easy visual verification.

Instructions for printing Ranges are provided at the bottom of this Home Page.

Enjoy!
