I have an application which is od grinding being done on an older relay logic machine. It has a rack and pinion table ocsilation, rotation of the spindle and advance of the grinding wheel as motion. The only one I need to have precise is the wheel advance. I'm looking for a controller that I can interface with a PLC that will control that one axis with a servo motor and ball screw while receiving outputs from the PLC . A single canned cycle to rapid to start diameter , then take passes across stepping in each time until reaching a finished diameter size with say 1 or 2 spark out passes.
Does anyone have experience with a controller as simple as this.
Thanks for any input you can provide,
