Finite element analysis (FEA) lets engineers explore the behavior of complex systems under real use conditions, running simulation after simulation to optimize overall performance by way of small design tweaks. The challenge is that FEA results are only as accurate as the simulation setup, as the saying goes, “garbage in...
Step and settle motion plays a critical role in applications ranging from life-sciences to medical to semiconductor and materials science. In systems like DNA sequencers, diagnostic imagers, or wafer-inspection systems, stages are fundamental to the success of the product. Selecting positioning equipment for these demanding applications is a complex balance of performance versus cost.
Stepper or Servo? An often-asked question when specifying a motor for a motion control system. Knowing when to use which can be important in the accuracy, performance, and cost of your machine.
Do you know the key areas to focus on when specifying a linear bearing? Areas such as preload, cleanliness, seals, material requirements, lubrication, duty cycle, etc. In our Engineering Insights article – “7 Tips for Selecting a Linear Bearing” we highlight the key considerations to determine your priorities and optimize your precision motion system.
How Preloading Linear Bearings Can Optimize Precision Motion Preload is an important degree of design freedom that can be used to fine-tune the performance of a motion system. By modifying the preload, designers can optimize the performance of the system for greater stiffness or smoother motion. Making the most effective...
