zub AG: 15 years of motion control modules made in Switzerland!

zub AG has been developing cutting edge technology such as electronic high- performance control systems and the automation software APOSS®-win …

in Switzerland since 1999.

Several new generations of positioning and synchronization control systems were developed over the years. Hundreds of new commands and functions extended the capabilities of APOSS. New technologies such as PowerCaps, DSPs and FPGAs were integrated in the zub motion control modules.

The user interface of the automation software APOSS as well as all APOSS tools are ported with every new Windows version. APOSS is thoroughly compatible; it can even be used to program control systems from the 1990s! A wide range of development and programming tools was built up over these 15 years, including an interactive, graphic CAM editor and, most recently, the path editor.

From the very beginning, clients such as the companies Danfoss and FERAG have been using our know-how and engineering services, thus profiting from tailor-made products and software solutions.

Our clients are from almost every branch of motion control technology. We have built unique systems for research purposes, such as an irradiation device for tumour therapy, control systems for the serial production of large printing machines, right up to OEM control systems for warehouse technology.

What comes next?

• With State machines we are making the programming of control systems even easier!
• We will make available a whole library of readymade standard solutions for various machine types!
• Our new control systems are enormously extending multi-axis capability and supporting SPS functionality with an EtherCAT Master!

Our clients' wishes are our motivation – we offer short decision-making paths, speed and flexibility, and always a direct line to us!
