Rotary electronic camming technology brief
This tech brief from Yaskawa discusses using electronic rotary camming techniques for applications where product rotates underneath, such as in high speed rotary labeling.
This application note provides an introduction to programming a rotary cam application. This is demonstrated using a rotary knife application, but applies to other types of applications such as rotary placers. Yaskawa offers both of these applications in a Solution Package.
A rotary cam application is any application where a rotary axis moves in a non-linear pattern based on the speed of another axis. Usually, there is a sensor to detect a product or a mark on a package. This sensor signal is used to determine where the rotary axis needs to be to perform its operation.
