Motion Control – High Speed Steinmeyer Stage Has Nanometer Positioning

Motion Control Nanometer Positioning Stage

BURLINGTON, MA — The approved motion control precision measuring stage series PMT160 was modifed for special applications in the laser technology and metrology. The innovation “DUAL-SPEED MODE” includes an assembly of 2 motors at one axis. For high speed a standard DC-Motor is used that can reach depending on the screw pitch 50…120mm/s. Due to the low speed dynamic range of a DC-Motor, positionings in the nanometer range do not meet the specifc requirements. In order to achieve very low speeds and nanometer steps it is possible to switch to a rotary piezo drive. The motion control will be executed by a modifed standard controller.

The Steinmeyer group is comprised of two manufacturing divisions located in Germany. August Steinmeyer GmbH & Co. KG (located in Albstadt) has been setting standards for high precision ball screws for over 40 years and prides itself on high quality, innovative designs to meet demanding customer requirements. Our Feinmess Dresden (FMD) division has been producing an extensive line of high precision positioning systems for well over 130 years.
