Miniaturisation in motion and control seminar

Miniaturisation in motion and control seminar

Renishaw Innovation Centre, New Mills, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire,
Tuesday 12 September 2017

As the world strives to reach new levels of productivity, it’s not just the need for speed that is driving machine design but also an awareness that size, mass and form of machine subsystems impact how the axes of motion should behave and how well these motions are measured and verified.

Renishaw is at the forefront of these aspects of machine design both as supplier of position sensors as components to outside industries and also as a consumer within our other product lines such as metrology, spectroscopy additive manufacturing – and miniaturisation affects them all.

For over 40 years, Aerotech has been applying the science of motion to the highest performance linear and rotary positioning stages for customers in industry, government, science and research institutions around the world.

A fine example of mechatronics, robotics and the integration of motion stages from Aerotech and others, is Renishaw’s latest automated assembly cell for the ATOM incremental encoder system.

The tour of this cell will be among the highlights of the seminar, as will the keynote address from visiting metrology expert, Professor Richard Leach from the University of Nottingham.

  • Machine builders or instrument makers looking beyond PID for the next motion challenge
  • Scientists or researchers wanting to measure finer than a micron/arc-second
  • Individuals curious to see our impressive facilities and learn from our diverse technology areas
