Abstract Electronic line-shafting (ELS) is the most popular control strategy for printing machines with shaftless drives. A slidingmode controller for tracking control is designed in this study as the first step towards an improved ELS control scheme. This controller can eliminate the negative effects on synchronization precision resulting from the friction at low speed present in the pre-registration step of a shaftless driven printing machine. Moreover, it can eliminate the synchronization error of the printing process resulting from nonlinearities and load disturbances. Based on observer techniques, the unknown components of load torque and system parameter variations are estimated. On this basis, a novel ELS control method using equivalent load-torque observers is proposed. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control system for four-axis position control.
