Using Metrology to Measure and Enhance the Performance of a Positioning System

RJ Hardt
President of Peak Metrology

This white paper will explain what positioning system metrology is, why it is important, how to conduct metrology and how to make use of the results. Metrology is conducted to ensure that a designer’s positioning system meets a set of required specifications once it is mechanically built. The following material will be geared towards precision motorized positioners under closed loop control.
