Precision Five-Axis Stacked Subsystem

Description

Design Features

  • Five-axis air-bearing workstation provides the highest levels of positioning performance for applications that demand perfect motion
  • Sub-micron accuracy tolerances about the work point
  • XYZ linear air-bearings with dual-rotary axes integrated onto the Z axis
  • Optimized counter-balancing system to maximize dynamic performance
  • All axes are fully integrated and precision aligned, with system-level metrology performed during assembly and performance data provided to customer
  • Five-axis coordinated control capabilities utilizing an Aerotech motion controller
  • Switch between Cartesian XYZ processing and tool-point kinematics capable of positioning normal to curved surfaces
  • Example applications include micromachining, laser machining, surface profiling, dispensing, and many more
