Omron CK3M Programmable Multi-Axis Motion Controller

DCS Omron CK3M Programmable Multi Axis Motion Controller 400x275

October 4, 2022


Omron’s next-generation motion controller packs PMAC’s superior motion control capability, multi-vendor connectivity and flexible development capability into its compact design.

Maximize your machine’s performance: Performing precise linear motor drive control and nanoscale positioning, the PMAC (Programmable Multi Axis Controller) has been appreciated by manufacturers of semiconductor manufacturing equipment and other leading-edge equipment.

Omron now offers a next generation motion controller CK3M that packs PMAC’s superior motion control capability, multi-vendor connectivity, and flexible development capability into its compact design. The CK3M removes constraints and barriers and maximizes your machine’s capabilities.


Local axes for nanoscale precision

  • •Ultra-high-speed synchronous control (50µs/5 axes)
  • •Custom servo regulation algorithms
  • •Flexibility on using multi-vendor actuators and encoders
  • •Flexibility on programming on G-code, ANSI C or original programming language
  • •EtherCAT for flexible configuration
  • •Modular design and DIN rail mounting


Modular design

The modular design allows you to freely combine the CK3M with up to two axial interface units to enable a variety of applications.

Power PMAC IDE (Integrated Development Environment)

  • •Based on Microsoft® Visual Studio®
  • •ANSI C or original programming language
  • •Easy tuning
  • •Simple setting
  • •Troubleshooting
  • •Debugger


Complex kinematics

Complex mechanics can be controlled thanks to the matrix handling and the space conversion. Special applications like Hexapod telescope mirror positioning, can be easily operated by the kinematics handling functionality.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
