Miniature XYZ Cartridge Locator

Miniature XYZ Cartridge Locator

Challenge: The customer was primarily concerned with fine resolution moves with 1 um relative repeatability.

Solution: LGS25 XYZ design with a direct drive stepper motor with ball screw and a flexure. We leveraged our LGS25 base design and mounted a direct drive stepper motor with a low friction ball screw, and proprietary drive coupling system to reduce cyclical runout error of the screw for an overall improvement in accuracy.

Result: The final configuration complied with customer requirements and performance parameters. The customer appreciated Motion Solutions’ willingness to collaborate and design the system with their specific needs.

Our Design Process

“It’s really important to thoroughly understand the application. We would start by reviewing the statement of work or application information that the customer provides, and then we would have a consultative meeting to make sure that we really understand how the system should function, and all of the nuances that are associated with it.”
