The use of devices that require precise positioning is more and more common in the field of industrial process control. Besides their frequent use, these devices possess a great amount of importance, since a well-planned position control might have an indirect impact on the production of a given plant.

This thesis is based on a specific industrial application, and its main goal is to solve a problem that came forward during the installation of a welding station in a transformer factory. In addition, it aims to model the drive system of the station and reproduce its operation.

In the thesis I introduce the Sinamics S120 drive system, and with the use of these components I set up a model of the welding station and implement its PLC controlled multi-axis positioning. Regarding the mentioned installation problem, load sharing considerations are also taken into account in the course of the solution.
