Motion Control Applications in large Facilities - October 6, 2013 - San Francisco, California

Share
October 6, 2013 San Francisco, California

Following the success of two workshops on motion control, in May 2010 and in October 2012, we propose a one day pre ICALEPCS meeting.

The workshop is intended to any subject related to motion control that can be shared. We suggest the following guidelines :

Experiences in motion control at the different sites: radiation damage to encoders, in house development vs industrial product, system performance validation including reliability, obsolescence management
 

Technical solutions in software and in low level hardware : kinematic transforms, complex trajectories, protection including collision avoidance, multi-axes and multi controller synchronization, embedded and/or hosted motion features 
 

Motion control challenges: submicron positioning, continuous and synchronous motion control and data detector’s acquisition.

  At the end of July, 32 attendees coming from 21 different institutes and 3 trading companies were registered for the MOCRAF workshop.
Many of institutes come to the workshop essentially to bring back information about what other groups are doing in the motion control area. They are also interested in seeing what industrial solutions are most used by the other projects. But that means that each institute shares with the audience what they are doing in motion control area. 
What we propose is to organize the workshop in three interlaced parts:

 

Part 1 Round table sessions 
 

We propose to have up to 3 sessions of 9 institutes/companies introduction followed by question time. 
Each institutes or company should delegate a speaker who will give a 5 minutes presentation of maximum 4 slides. 
We suggested answering the following questions:
• What is the aim of the institute/company? 
• What means Motion control in your institute (organization, technologies, installed base…)?
• What are your technical current challenges or concerns in motion area?
• What are your expectation and/or questions for the audience?
 
 

Part 2 Technical presentation from institute – a maximum of 6 slots of 12 minutes of presentation and 3 minutes question’s times is available.
 
The goal of this part is to have a deeper view of what is motion control in different type of facilities, and to point out what can be common and what can be different and if we can share some solution or method. 

Today we have the following proposals:

Diamond and Soleil – speakers Brian Nutter and Dominique Corruble: "Overview of motion control in synchrotron facility" 
SNS – speaker Matthew Pearson: "Overview of motion control in Spallation Neutron Source facility" 
ALBA - Guifré Cuni: "generic software interface for motion control"–To be confirmed
APS - speaker Mark Rivers: "Coordinated multi-axis complex motion in EPICS"– To be confirmed
We hope to have some volunteers in free electron laser, telescope, particle physics fields… 
 
 

Part 3 Technical presentation from trading company – a maximum of 3 slots of 12 minutes of presentation and 3 minutes question’s times is available, but many trading company will be present as exhibitors during the conference and will be able to give more details.
 
The presentation should focus on technical aspect and/or example of application for scientific facilities.

Today we have the following proposals:
Delta-tau UK - speaker Andy Joslin : “Coordinating Synchronous (Real-Time) Motion Between EPICS/Tango Systems and PMAC Controllers”

The repartition between three parts of program can change in agreement with the number of attendees and your feedback. We propose to focus the first ICALEPCS pre-workshop dedicated to motion control to create link and exchange between each other that can be prolong during the whole conference.
