Custom Solutions

Modified Versions of Standard Products

Modified Versions of Standard Products  

The modification of a standard product is cost effective when a standard product lacks one or two features to meet application requirements. Modified standard products involve minimal development costs. Examples include:

  • Special hole patterns
  • Custom finishes or markings
  • Multi-axis configurations
  • Granite or steel machine bases
  • Cable management
  • Preparation for special environment
     

Custom Positioning Stages & Controls

Custom Positioning Stages & Controls  

Custom motion products designed to meet all customer requirements have moderate to higher development costs but yield lower productions costs when compared with standard product solutions. Examples include:

  • Low-profile X,Y,Z stage with internal cable management
  • Large aperture dual-drive open frame X,Y stage on granite
  • Very flat X,Y stage for vacuum operation
  • Eight axis programmable motion controller with integrated linear servo amplifiers
   

 

Custom Motion Platform

   

A custom motion platform goes a step beyond positioning stages or controls. It is the integration of key motion tasks with material handling and/or process control and monitoring. Custom motion platforms are assembled and tested as a unit. Examples include:

  • X,Y,Z,Θ stage on welded base with motion control panel
  • X,Y axes in vacuum chamber with integrated material load and un-load mechanism
  • X,Y,Z inspection mechanism with sample handler

Long Travel Precision Linear Stage on Granite

 Linear Stage on Granite  

This single axis system is an example of a custom design driven by the customer's performance requirements. The main goals for this project were:

  • +/- 10 arc-sec dynamic yaw over travel
  • 1m/s speed with high resolution encoder and 50lb load
  • Integrated air lines and digital I/O in cable management
   

 

High Vacuum Rated X,Y,Z,Theta Stage

 Custom XYZT  

This 4 axis system integrated system is an example of a custom design driven by the customer's performance requirements. The main goals for this project were:

  • Reduce footprint of assembly to 16" x 16" x 6" tall
  • Maintain +/- 3 micron repeatability for all linear axes, +/- 4 arc-sec for theta axes at tool point 4 inches above theta platen
  • Pull down to 10-6 torr in 3 minutes or less
  • Reduce cost of assembly
