‘How to Design & Build a High Precision Positioning System’ Seminars in Toronto & Montreal

Electromate is pleased to announce it will be hosting two ‘’How to Design & Build a High Precision Positioning System’ Seminars on Tuesday May 17th in Toronto, Ontario and on Wednesday May 18th in Montreal, Quebec.

'How to Design & Build a High Precision Positioning System' Seminars

Participating in the Seminars will be:

Galil Motion Control
Harmonic Drive
Ibex Engineering
Nippon Pulse America
Schneeberger Linear Technology
GSI MicroE Systems

Who would benefit from this Seminar:

Designers in the Medical, Biotech, Semiconductor, Pharmaceutical, Optics, Photonics, Metrology
& Microscopy, Material Science, Life Science, Test & Measurement, and Research & Lab Automation markets who are looking to gain a better practical understanding of ‘How to Design & Build a High Precision Positioning Motion Control System’.

The Seminar agenda includes presentations on:

  • Advanced motion control techniques for sub-micron and nanopositioning applications
  • Using Labview VI’s in sub-micron positioning applications
  • Improving positioning with dual-loop control and S-curve motion
  • Optimized tuning procedures for high precision systems
  • Troubleshooting dithering, ringing, position error, etc.
  • Incorporating remote IO for complete machine control
  • Bearing system selection (ie. cross roller bearing, linear recirculating, air bearing, flexure, etc)
  • Importance of the coefficient of friction, stiction, bearing preload, breakaway torque & friction
  • The importance of running parallelism, straightness, flatness, orthogonality
  • Hysteresis, lost motion, bearing creep and various forces that affect stage performance
  • Axial/radial loading and their affects on system precision
  • Failure modes. How and when they happen (ie. brinelling)
  • Choice of stepper vs servo (ie. positioning vs steady speed applications)
  • Linear motors vs. voicecoil motors vs. piezo ceramic motors in high precision linear systems
  • Sizing Linear Shaft Motors & linear motor systems
  • Harmonic Drive vs. Direct Drive Rotary systems … how to choose the right technology
  • Understanding system backlash, cogging and rigidity/stiffness
  • Accuracy vs. repeatability vs. resolution
  • Preferred types of feedback systems and end-of-travel switches
  • Chat with an engineer to solve your toughest motion control problem
  • Product Demonstrations
