10/14/2020 Axis Synchronization & Gearing
Delta Application Engineer David McNichol presents some of the powerful features of the RMC motion controllers, axis synchronization and axis gearing. The ability to easily synchronize the movement of multiple actuators, or to gear the motion of certain actuators to other actuators at user-defined ratios in an easy-to-use format sets the RMCs apart from the majority of otion control products. RMCs can synchronize and coordinate motion between different kinds of actuators - for example, a servo-electric motor and a servo-hydraulic cylinder or cylinders. This webinar will present the different pre-programmed commands for synchronization and gearing, and the different approaches to the problem depending on the desired motion.

7/15/2020 The Misconception that Hydraulics are Slow and Old-Fashioned
Presented by GCC in cooperation with Delta Computer Systems. This webinar covers the advantages of using precision motion control for industrial hydraulic systems. The presenter is David McNichol, Applications Engineer at Delta Computer Systems. David explains how a modern motion controller, such as the RMC family of controllers from Delta, enables smoother operation, results in less maintenance, supports a broad range of popular and commonly-used industrial communications protocols, and returns more usable data about the status and condition of the machine.
