Motion control is considered as a key fundamental technological foundation of industrial robots. It initiates & controls the movement of a load to perform work. It is capable of precise position, speed, and torque control. It is comprised of three basic components: drive or amplifier, controller, and motor. Motion controls is used for positioning of a product, synchronization of separate elements, and rapid start & stop of motion. It may be closed loop or open loop. In open loop systems, the controller sends a command through an amplifier to the prime mover or actuator.
