Currently, models for XY plotter cutters specific to industrial and arts and crafts applications are not publicly available. This paper mathematically models the XY motion control for a commercial plotter cutter. In this particular application, the Y motion is controlled by media feed and the X motion is controlled by a gantry arm. A dynamic, electromechanical model consisting of a governing system of differential equations for the gantry arm is developed and simulated using Matlab. Once the model is developed, it will be used to decrease development time and optimize performance parameters.
