50+ Axis Motion Subsystem

Description

Design Features

  • A large instrument which incorporates detailed collaboration between the customer and Aerotech’s engineering team
  • Meticulously designed to implement 50+ axes of motion while maintaining performance specifications at the working location
  • Uses a powerful Aerotech motion controller to coordinate the many axes as well as kinematically transform Cartesian frames for ease of use
  • Built using many of Aerotech’s standard motion control axes, custom mechanics where needed, and a stiff granite structure to isolate external influences
  • Extensive metrology, testing, and documentation
  • Utilizes an Aerotech motion controller to calibrate and optimize repeatable errors out of the system’s daily operation
  • Example applications include advanced metrology, inspection, characterization, and scientific instrumentation
