As an example; our Servo Transfer System can control several servo axis and synchronize them to the press ram motion.  If the ram moves forward, the servo's will move forward.  If the ram is reversed so are the servo's.  And, if the ram changes speed, the servo's will track the ram instantly. 

Most users mount the servo transfer axis in an x,y,z configuration and typically locate them them on the press bolster or in die.  There are three additional servo axis designated u,v,w which could be used for blank feeding, material handling, part checking or even flipping a part in die for a coining operation. 

Not enough axis?  Each axis is able to control a master and a slave, which means there can be a total of six master and six slave servo motors.  That's twelve servo motors within one system.  Still not enough, well, we can actually expand the design to go even higher, just ask us.

The servo transfer control system also has a built in press emulator which allows simulation and programming of your transfer system in your tool room.  This feature combined with the teach functions typically found in robot applications can save you a great deal of valuable press time.
