Surgical Imaging Machine Actuator System
When a medical equipment OEM developed a new technology platform for its surgical imaging machine, Kyntronics worked closely with its team to customize an EMA and Power Line Communications solution to achieve multiple-axis coordinated motion. The result: simplified wiring, a compact package and reduced costs.
- Multiple elements of the surgical imaging machine needed to move smoothly and simultaneously in a coordinated manner. Kyntronics’ customized EMA does the job with nine actuator axis controlled by customized software developed by Kyntronics engineers.
- Kyntronics’ robust rotary and linear actuators meet the machine’s tight space requirements.
- The EMA system improves end-user productivity because simultaneous, coordinated movement decreases overall movement time with increased positional accuracy and reduced “jogging” of machine elements.
- Power Line Communications embedded in the EMA system allowed a simple 2-wire daisy-chained wiring scheme to be used that significantly reduced cost and machine complexity.
