Embedded Profile Control

Home > Metal Forming> Embedded Profile Control

Our Profiler software module precisely synchronizes automation with a press or shear. The software is embedded directly within a Unico drive, eliminating the need for an external motion controller. The Profiler can control single- or multi-axis automation for in-press or between-press transfers and other press-following applications.

It provides coordinated motion control for up to 20 drives in as many as 20 independent axes in its standard configuration. With Unico’s proprietary high-speed communication protocol, STF® Link (dual Syncbus network), 77 drives in as many as 77 independent axes can be supported. Electronic line shafting eliminates the large gearboxes and PTOs associated with mechanical systems, resulting in smoother motion, greater flexibility, and reduced mechanical maintenance.
