36 Copyright © 2009 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 36 Summary – things to consider What machine functions might benefit from achieving more precise controlled linear motion? Any advantages for performance or flexibility with an electronic digitally controlled cylinder? Would an electric cylinder with closed loop, absolute positioning: –help simplify any mechanical functionality? –improve recover times from power outages? –minimize chances of process variables affecting quality or downtime? Would an additional axis with safe off or safe limited speed functionality enhance the machine’s salability? Would a reduction in compressed air usage be helpful for savings or demonstrating a better return on investment for the machine? A pneumatic cylinder: fixed length extend retract
