Part 1 of 3: Tension Control on Spindle Wheel
Electronic gearing in motion control allows for a slave axis to follow a master axis with a programatically set gear ratio. There are certain applications that obviously lend to an electronic gearing solution, but there are some challenging applications where the functionality of electronic gearing can greatly simplify a solution in a manner that may not seem obvious at first. This series of three papers will discuss how electronic gearing can provide simple solutions to different motion control challenges.

As the computer and electronics industries pack more circuits on semiconductor wafers, particle generation in the clean rooms where they are processed becomes more critical with each generation. In many applications, mechanical positioning stages are a large contributor to contamination. Suppliers are required to follow special design criteria that ensure a positioning stage’s cleanliness according to certain standards…

A guide to ServoBelt Rotary and Direct Drive Theta modification
While off-the-shelf rotary stages will do the job in most cases, sometimes your application requirements call for a customized stage. It may be something as simple as a special bolt hole pattern on the top of the stage. Or you may need a way to secure a workpiece in the stage center opening. Or you may need to squeeze a rotary positioning device into a tight space.
Whatever your requirements, we can help. We’ve introduced accessories and modular design features that make it easy to customize our standard Servo-Belt Rotary (SBR) and Direct Drive Theta (DDT) rotary stages. And in cases where our standard rotary platforms can’t be modified to fit your requirements, we can often design and build one-of-a-kind rotary motion systems to your specifications.

In many devices lead screw assemblies are used to convert motion from rotary to linear and vice versa. Historically these assemblies have had poor efficiencies and relied on grease for improved performance. Over the past few decades the advent of engineered polymers and new manufacturing capabilities have changed the game for the conventional lead screw assembly making it a powerful solution for motion based design challenges. At first glance lead screw assemblies seem rudimentary, but they are designed to perform a very specific function, and even with the latest developments in materials and manufacturing processes having a basic understanding of how lead screws operate can be the difference between a successful design and catastrophic failure…
