The article offers information on the factors to consider in matching the inertia for direct driving. It states that minimizing the difference between the loaded and unloaded conditions like cutting down the inertia ratio can help maximize the possibility of a successful result. Moreover, it notes that mechanical transmission components used with traditional motion control can lead to excessive heat.
