From the economic point of view, rising the output rate of processing machines is a key requirement. Thereby, particular demands are to be met, i.e., product quality, process stability, energy consumption, impact of surroundings, or safety at work. Rising the output rate is limited, if only one of these demands can not longer be met. In this paper, a novel control approach is presented that allows to change the executed motion profile due to the actual output rate. Increasing the machine’s performance is evaluated on experimental results. Unused potentials of servo drives are opened up to generate highly dynamic multi-axis motions in processing machines.
