  • Guide To Understanding Newall's Spherosyn and Microsyn Linear Feedback Encoders
    of mass-produced ball bearings. The Spherosyn TM encoder is made up of two main assemblies, the reader head and the scale. The scale is a length of stainless steel tube housing a column of precision steel balls. The balls are maintained under compression, the compression load being set during
  • Advanced photonics will ride on air
    Air-bearing stages are a key to obtaining nanometer-scale movements that are a necessity for automating the assembly of photonic equipment. The universe of stage suppliers is fairly large; there is only a handful of vendors supplying airbearing stages. Miniaturized airbearing stages have recently
  • A Primer on Displacement Measuring Interferometers
    A Displacement Measuring Interferometer (DMI) measures linear and angular displacements with very high accuracy and precision. DMI's are used in a variety of applications which can be broken into two broad categories: • high resolution real time position control systems, such as those used
  • Positioning in nanometers
    to considerable technology for making precision products with ultrahigh accuracy. Engineers in research and development labs have pushed far beyond the nano envelope. The next challenge is to measure in pico (10-12), femto (10-15), and atto (10-18) meters. Today, manufacturers are using piezoelectric
  • Tiny Motors Make Big Moves
    move at linear speeds up to 100 mm/sec. Different models include designs for vacuum and nonmagnetic applications. Various sizes can handle pulling forces from one to several hundred Newtons. Moreover, the simple design supports mass production while still maintaining a high degree of precision
  • Sponge wrings cost from MR-fluid devices
    cycling machines. Active-vibration-control seats for large, Class 8 trucks reduce driver fatigue, adjustable-rate shock absorbers improve race car handling, and pneumatic actuators fitted with feed-back-controlled rotary brakes and linear dampers move loads more precisely than previously possible
