Custom and High Performance Motion Control Devices
Are you facing the challenge of designing or re-designing products that are more compact, less expensive, more reliable and have higher throughput?
Designing for CE, UL, FDA or MIL certifications that require high performance motion control devices?
Need to be fast? Designing for "dock-to-stock" can include having your software pre-loaded. As an additional service, we can, during final test, load the files required for your product(s) as the last step of test and packaging for shipment. This provides additional cost savings by eliminating internal labor requirements.o-market? Take months off your development cycle by involving us as outsourced designers. Contact us!
At Ingenia, we are a team of Motion people working together for many years. Our company is run as a motion control R&D facility looking at the science behind motion and how to get that encapsulated into building blocks we use to motion control developments and OEM optimizations of Customized products.
"We push motion control technology R&D so you can advance the art of your market." We provide state-of-the-art motion control technology that can be tailored to the specific needs of each application. No matter the volume. No matter the complexity.
GROUP SIX and Ingenia Motion Control have arrived at an optimal path for fast-to-market projects that target cost reducing motion control components and sub-systems by using integrated Ingenia’s motion control building blocks and using concurrent hardware and software development. We offer our Motion Engineering Team as resources for your product development and complete support during your product life cycle.
When targeting the compactness and components of the drive elements, motor drives, or high performance servo and stepper controls, we consider the overall system architecture and how these components relate and perform in the system. This is critical as is sets the baseline for the cost reduced system. Since cost reduction is often tied to the need for increased performance, new component selection and cost, plus software compatibility are often tightly coupled.
Manufacturability and flexibility in production and product life cycle are key considerations that are supported by Ingenia's embedded motion control IC's. Time to market of less than 6 months is often a goal that is difficult to meet with internal resources that have large task loads and are stretch thin.
Understanding thermal management and load stability are essential, and already part of the experience tool kit. Space is money. Time is money and reaching the re-design goals on time is critical to defending and increasing your market share. We understand this and our process is design to get you to beat these objectives. Starting with standard components, testing, arriving together at the next-gen system specification is a recipe for fast track programs that are optimized to your design objectives.
JOINT DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT
Using an dynamic, live development environment that opens our work schedule and progress up to the Customer to monitor and participate in the development and project management. We further involve your Project Managers and Engineers that are responsible at your company, while giving Procurement Management a clear view of projects, development costs and component cost to oversee the commercial objectives.
PROJECT VISIBILITY and OPENNESS
We are open to, and encourage, your development team to see how much IP can be pushed down into the motion system to further enhance performance. Proprietary control algorithms implemented on the drive system may provide better performance in your system or process while reducing the software burden on the central control CPU. This has produced many win-win scenarios for OEM;s looking at system and compone
Test and see that affect that off-loading the system CPU can have during the development and collaborative design sessions with our Motion Engineering Team.
Fast prototyping with Arduino, Raspberry PI boards are great for quick turn proof of concept and getting up and running in a very short time. We have libraries written for most of these and are
working in Python for other applications. As a digitally based design company, we have our own motion control chip set and related C Library that is the basis for our fast-turn
design programs. Shipping a product to your customers requires CE FCC, UL and or MIL spec certifications. Projects we have finished for subsea, drones and ROV's have different requirements for environment and robust shock and vibration approvals.
Using our labs and the labs where we maintain close alliances, we have been able to design, prototype test and deliver to aggressive schedules set out by our Customers. Customer Engineering teams appreciate that Ingenia uses the CANOpen industry standards as the basis of our C and development libraries so there is a uniform approach and portability across product platforms and system communication interfaces.
Designing for battery operated systems and re-charging batteries is a very important part of our focus. Today's ROV's UUV, drones and other autonomous vehicles are making the motor drive an integral part of the energy management system. We have experience in the design of systems used for regenerative battery charging and shunting excess power to protect the battery system and other controls being powered. Motors are generators at heart and need the excess power managed. This has been part of our deliverable time after time.
