Hi,
I am going to make a 6-axis robotic arm and I am going to control the motors with PLC.
I don't know how I should start and how to program the motors in order that the arm go to the right position.
And which coordination system I should use.
And etc...
Could you please help how I can start?

Hi,

First off, you need a motion profile. This will be your reference. Actual measurements/readings will be your feedback. Your PLC will be your controller.

Start with generating a motion profile with the PLC.

Thanks,
I think this can be a practical way and will help.
Could you please show me an example of a motion profile, or introduce a reference for that?

Besides the motor control, are you going to build a 6 DOF robotic arm (robot manipulator), or do you have the robot arm?
