Quiet Operation

Quiet stepper motor operation using QuickSilver Controls’ SilverSterling(TM) controllers.

Engineering in Art

Motion Control so quiet it can be used in a museum piece.

Direct Drive - Belt

Direct drive (no gear box) servo system operating belt actuator with widely varying loads - no load up to 25 pounds of weights.

Wind/Unwind Machine

Three QCI motors and QCI controllers working together via CANopen in wind/unwind application.

Return of the Direct Drive Belt

A redo of our original Direct Drive belt for our viewers who believe our original was too good to be true. Now with added charted background for non-dithering ability reference.

Automated Testing - Pick and Place

Three QCI controllers driving three 3rd party motors in closed-loop mounted to a 3-axis stage. The master controller, the Z-Axis, transmits target position information via CANopen.

Additional Direct Drive Capabilities

Direct drive (no gear box) servo system operating belt actuator with widely varying loads - no load up to 50 pounds of weights horizontally and 15 pounds vertically.

Servo Spiral

Sample QuickControl Program creating a spiral with the help of a 3-axis stage. Three motors and three controllers interact via CAN to produce a smooth motion.

3-Axis CNC

Coordinated axes control for an NC wood router. Motors are driven via step and direction with electronic gearing.
