Vision and Control Systems (VCS) is a leading full-service automation integrator specializing in motion and positioning systems. Our expertise ranges from drive screw, single-axis, and related linear actuation to variable frequency drives (VFD) and multi-axis servo motion control solutions. Our know-how extends to the application of these technologies in computer numerical control (CNC) routers, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), steppers, compressed air and hydraulics systems, and the most advanced robot controls.
How We Work
When you need precise, repeatable motion control, VCS can move your project from start to finish. When evaluating a new system, we work closely with you to fully understand the application; define process physics, such as mass, weight, and acceleration; identify data, communication, and safety requirements; and survey relevant upstream and downstream automation systems that will interact with the robot.
To help you determine the best answers, we help you ask the right questions, such as:
- Is the task served better by a linear actuator or a combination of VFDs or servos?
- Does the application require a custom gantry configuration?
- Is worker safety ensured more effectively by a light curtain, safety laser scanners, barriers, or a robot cage?
- What human–machine interfaces (HMI) are required, and what functions should they serve?
- Could a custom solution based on multiple motion control access actuators be the best design?
Whom We Work With
VCS solutions are customer-focused and technology agnostic, though the depth of our motion control expertise is evident in whom we work with. We have implemented program solutions using PLCs and machine controls from leading manufacturers, such as Allen-Bradley, GE Fanuc, Mitsubishi, Siemens, Omron, Modicon, and others.
Familiar with these and many other proven hardware suppliers, VCS engineers fully test and optimize your PLC motion control system to ensure that it performs to your specifications. The breadth of our expertise allows us to bring the resources and know-how to meet and exceed virtually any challenge in motion control.
VCS services and support cover the U.S. East Coast and beyond, with locations based near New York City and the Southeast’s emerging automation hub in South Carolina.
