Abstract

Air motors have been generally applied in the automation industry. Since air motors operate without electricity, they will not produce sparks, explosions or short circuit phenomenon. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the behavior of a ball screw table actuated by a piston air motor and design a hybrid (backstepping and fuzzy) sliding mode controller for accomplishing accurate position performance. The experimental results validate the proposed position control strategy.
