No Output Filtering

With Output Filtering

Delta's Output Filter Improves Force Control Applications
Delta Computer Systems, Inc. announces the improvement of a significant tuning feature for controlling difficult, dynamic motion control systems. Filtering of inputs and outputs is commonly used to smooth motion. And an Output Filter in challenging motion control applications has proven to resolve problems when low resolution feedback, extreme load variations, poor hydraulic design or valve quality lead to a machine specific problem.

People at DELTA

Quinton Tormanen, Delta Software Engineer
Quinton and his family have just returned from a summer in Stockholm, Sweden. Quinton and his wife are raising their children bilingually, speaking Swedish at home. "This extended stay improved our Swedish language, and gave us a broader perspective on life outside the USA," says Quinton, "I am grateful to Delta for working with me on making this opportunity a reality, especially for our children's sake."

Quinton grew up near Delta's current headquarters. He received his BS in Computer Science from Seattle University before returning to Battle Ground. Quinton has worked 15 years as a Software Engineer at Delta focused on motion controller product design, architecture, and programming.

"I often tell people that this is my dream job," Quinton says, "The small company environment allows me to be involved at all levels of product development, I'm working with a great team, and I leave each day knowing that my contribution mattered."

Latest Articles and Application Notes

Electro-Hydraulic Motion Controllers Emulate Real-World Conditions for Aircraft Component Testing
Hydraulics is the power of choice for many aerospace test applications. Equipment with a controllable hydraulic pump and accumulator can consume less power and be much easier to construct than systems with electric motors and gear boxes. This gives hydraulics an advantage in applications that involve lots of back and forth motion while moving heavy loads or applying large amounts of force.

Closed-Loop Electrohydraulic Motion Controller Boosts Steel Producing Machine's Productivity
Steel Dynamics Inc., the nation's fifth largest producer of carbon steel products, was looking to substantially improve the efficiency of a continuous I-beam caster at its operations in Columbia City, Ind. A pusher table that carries formed I-beams away from the caster was malfunctioning periodically and causing downtime for the whole operation. The jamming was caused by the fact that its ducking dogs, pusher arms (powered by hydraulic cylinders) that moved the beams, were not operating precisely in lock step. To fix the problem, plant managers called in hydraulics system integrator Hartsock Industrial, Brownsburg, Ind., to upgrade the motion controls for the line. (Hydraulics & Pneumatics - August 2011)

Electro-Hydraulic Motion Controller for Earthquake Simulation
How do you test the behavior of different soil structures in an earthquake? Obviously, large earthquakes don't happen often, and they certainly don't happen on cue. The solution, of course, is to model earthquakes in a laboratory environment. And that's exactly what is being done by the Center for Geotechnical Modeling at the University of California, Davis. Since it's not economical to simulate the forces of an earthquake on fullsize soil structures such as one would find beneath a real bridge or large building, physical models of much smaller size are used.

Cold Press
Hydraulics is the power source of choice when lots of force is to be applied and precisely controlled in the manufacturing process. And when that force is to be spread over a wide area such as in an engineered lumber press, the coordination of multiple hydraulic axes makes it possible. For example, a cold press produced by Spar-Tek Industries of Portland, Ore. uses eight 4 in. hydraulic cylinders to raise and lower the platens and 32 12 in. rams to press LVL billets. Customers such as Roseburg Forest Products use Spar-Tek's cold press to process LVL billets up to 67 ft. long and 4 ft. wide by 4 ft. tall (with finished billet sizes at 3 ½, 5 ¼ and 7 in thick).
