  • Publication number: 20200164430
    Abstract: When the deceleration start point is reached, the meter-in side of the hydraulic driving actuator is subjected to a flow rate control to thereby start the deceleration control processing. The position to which the movable unit is moved is detected to use a speed instruction corresponding to the movement position to subject the hydraulic driving actuator to a meter-in control. The position to which the movable unit is moved is detected to calculate the moving speed of the movable unit. Based on the speed instruction, the moving speed is subjected to the feedback control using the meter-out control to the hydraulic driving actuator.
