Precise position value identification

The 3-axis gantry robot removes a carton from the conveyor belt and supplies it to the next process. Here, it is critical that the movements necessary for positioning within the process are carried out with a high degree of accuracy. The high-resolution AFS/AFM60 EtherCAT® absolute encoder takes high-precision measurements of the absolute position and speed of the conveyor belt.
