Digital Controller for Incremental "Cut-to-Length" Applications
The M-CUT is an intelligent universal controller designed for highly accurate, high speed control of incremental feeding applications. It can handle both direct point-to-point, and registration reference operations. The point-to-point cut-to-length operation consists of moving from a predefined "home", through the S-curve velocity profiles directly to the destination point. The registration reference point is different in that the final destination point is determined by the occurrence of a registration mark, which is typical of web applications with variances from web "stretch".
