Electric Motion Sizing Tool Webinar

How to select cost-optimised electric drives for rotary and linear applications


Thursday | 18 November | 10:00 - 10:45 am GMT
This live 45-minute webinar will show you how to select the optimal servo or stepper drives for your application together with perfectly matched electro-mechanical parts.

The new Electric Motion Sizing tool from Festo quickly calculates the most cost-effective solution based on your performance requirements by using a small number of application parameters. Uniquely it is suitable for both linear applications, where motors and mechanics must be sized together, or purely rotary scenarios.

Furthermore, it offers solutions that can be seamlessly connected to ProfiNet, EtherCat, or EtherNet IP networks without further work.

During the webinar, Warren Harvard, Electric Automation Product Marketing Manager at Festo, will show you how:

  • To use this free tool for sizing both rotary and linear applications (with electro-mechanical systems)
  • To find quick, reliable results without complex calculations such as mass moment of inertia
  • You can view the performance of different options and download the detailed results
  • You can choose the most cost-effective option that meets your performance requirements
  • You can quickly connect to the Festo Automation Suite tool for easy commissioning  
This webinar is aimed at mechanical and controls engineers involved in sizing and selecting servo and stepper motors and associated mechanics.

Watch this short 2 minute video for an overview of this exciting new tool!

The sizing and simulation tool supports you in finding the right electric or electromechanical servo drive for your application. The calculation is based on a few parameters, such as mass, stroke/travel distance, and cycle time. The tool will quickly show you which solution of servo drive controller and motor or servo drive controller, motor and mechanics meets your requirements most economically.
