There are many applications in the precision motion industry that include lasers.  For example, you could have laser encoders integrated into a positioning stage to provide the finest resolution and highest accuracy or it could be a positioning stage built with the final application being to provide a motion platform for laser cutting.  The point being, most applications that involve lasers also include some sort of motion platform. With the…

In the precision motion industry, the goal is to achieve certain performance specifications for an applications movement profile.  The movement profile can range from simple to complex, but is always based on at least one, if not all of the six degrees of freedom. The six degrees of freedom refers to the freedom of movement of a rigid body in three-dimensional space.  Specifically, the position and orientation of a rigid…
