“Hope for the best but prepare for the worst”
End-stop design challenges in Mechatronic Systems.

By Ronald Plak, Mechanical System Architect at Sioux Technologies.

Do you dare to let your design crash on purpose? End-stops should never fail but how can you be sure?

By pushing our mechatronic designs to the limits also the end-stops often become critical and a limitation for the system performance.

The key to creating a robust end-stop solution is “keeping it simple”. But to create a simple design that works you do need to understand the complex crash behavior first.

In this presentation we will take you along some struggles from architecture choices, design optimizations, dynamic analysis, and testing. But most of all we will focus on some fascinating crash phenomena as hammering, re-bouncing and dynamic force amplifications so that they won’t surprise you when you need a crash device you can trust for your next critical application.

We will start at 12:02pm on December 6
