Motion control is a sub-field of automation, encompassing the systems or sub-systems involved in moving parts of machines in a controlled manner. A motion control system is extensively used in a variety of fields for automation purposes, including precision engineering, micro-manufacturing, biotechnology, and nanotechnology.
The main components involved typically include a motion controller, an energy amplifier, and one or more prime movers or actuators. Motion control may be open loop or closed loop.
