'[EE] Motion controller options'

I find myself reponsible for a rather messy and arcane motion control
system, with the option, depending on system cost and engineering
costs, of replacing the existing system.

Replacement is good, since we're spending almost as much time hacking
on the existing system as would be required to make a new system work.
Plus, we've exhausted the resources of our current controller and
would like to add some more functionality to the product, which ain't
gonna happen with the current setup.

This is my first foray into the wild world of motor control.  Sage
words of wisdom?  Good websites which provide a minimum of sales
pitching and a maximum of information?  Recommendations for solid
products (2-axis, fairly low precision (~+/- 2mm repeatability),
~US$1000-$1500 per unit (qty 60/p.a.),  easy to program (C?))?

We've had our first look at Yaskawa; seems good, but more research is
to be expected.

I've had good luck with Galil Motion control products.  However their
stuff isn't the cheapest.  The programming library was pretty easy to
use.  This was a 5 axis machine for simultaneous milling of both sides
of a long, flat blank.

<http://www.geckodrive.com> makes decent and (so far) very reliable
controllers.  Mix and match your own motors and encoders.

Furthermore, Geckodrive is in the process of introducing the the G100
that many are raving about.  Some say their website is lacking in this
product line area so also check out the geckodrive yahoogroup.  The
designer, Mariss, hangs out there.
