Max. load Fx

Force that the positioning system can exert continuously in the drive direction (lifting tables, Fz)

How will the maximum load Fx be recorded?

The maximum load Fx, the actuating force of the positioning system, will initially be calculated theoretically. During the development of the positioning system, this force is tested and verified with the control electronics. Afterwards, this value is considered a verified product characteristic.

With a suitable control system, the positioning system is capable of creating this actuating force, but in certain circumstances may no longer be able to reach the maximum positioning speed. The drive force Fx exerted can have an overriding influence on the achievable repeatability and accuracy parameters. The maximum load Fx is primarily defined by the motor and drive of the positioning system.
