Design of Electronic Cam Based on FPGA
It is well known that cam is one of essential parts in the industrial production line, and the design, processing, installment and maintenance of the cams is difficult. To realize the function of electronic cams, we use the FPGA processor and the servo electrical machinery system to substitute the original mechanical cam and many spare parts related. Application of the new system can simplify mechanism structure, enhance organization reliability, increase the control precision, promote cam flexibility and reduce processing cost.
