Picasso : CNC plotter

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.); KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

Sammanfattning: In today’s society, CNC machines are used for various purposes.In this project, a CNC plotter is created to analyzehow the performance of the plotter differs when using twodifferent motors: a DC motor controlled by a potentiometerin the horizontal direction and a stepper motor in thevertical direction. A CNC plotter is built and used to dotests in order to answer the research question. The resultsshow that a DC motor with a potentiometer is more precisethan a stepper motor and the mean value of the relative errorsin the vertical direction is always higher. The valuesdiffer with 1 percentage point to 3 percentage points. Thedifference in the performance of the two motors depend onseveral factors and one of the main factors is considered tobe the fact that the stepper motor sometimes skips steps.
