ASDA-Soft Building CAM Table – (2) Trapezoidal Curve

ASDA-Soft Building CAM Table – (2) Trapezoidal Curve

Trapezoidal CAM curve is being widely used in the flying-shear and labeling application. This article explains how to build a “trapezoidal cam table” with software ASDA-Soft, which is the foundation of the flying-shear application including adjusting the profile of the curve, synchronizing the speed of master and slave axes, configuring the output angle of the synchronization area , etc. Applicable to both ASD-A2 and ASD-M-R series servos!

A2 E-CAM Example: Flying Shear (2) – Parameter setting

A2 E-CAM Example: Flying Shear (2) – Parameter setting

Following the sample program in A2 E-CAM Example – Flying Shear (1) – Basic Operation, this article includes the further introduction of the parameter configuration. Due to the difference in specifications of each flying shear mechanism, it is not appropriate to apply the sample parameters completely unchanged. This article will elaborate the related parameters and the principle for the proper configuration.

A2 E-CAM Example: Flying Shear (1) – Basic Operation

Flying shear is a common application of the E-CAM function. This article provides the Delta A2 servo’s sample program of the flying shear, including the trapezoidal E-CAM curve, parameter file with the PR commands, so users can follow the instruction and easily run the program to help with understanding the operating principle of flying shear and how to utilize it. Generally, the master axis of the flying shear is the encoder signal of the feeding axis while the slave axis is the sliding table, which is the target to be controlled in this example. Please refer to the video clip in the following links for the flying shear application => YouTube
