Motion Control Air Bearing Stages from H2W Technologies

Motion Control Air Bearing Stage
Motion Control Air Bearing Stage

The ABS positioning stage is a high precision, granite base, air bearing positioning stage for high end positioning applications. It is driven by an ironless core, non-cogging 3 phase brushless linear motor and guided by 5 flat magnetically preloaded air bearings floating on a granite base. The ironless core coil assembly is used as the drive mechanism for the AB stage because of its smooth, non-cogging operation. The lightweight of the coil and table assembly allows for high acceleration of light loads. The air bearings, which are used for supporting and guiding the payload, float on a cushion of air.

Motion Control – Case Study: Custom Linear Modules – Lithography Masking!

Motion Control – Custom Linear Modules

motion control - custom stages

motion control - steinmeyer

 

 

 

 

 

Woburn, MA –Motion Control Components Ball Screws – Case Study –
Multi-Axis Motion for Lithography Masking

Challenge

A leading supplier of laser processing equipment to the semiconductor industry wanted a next generation masking system for extreme UV lithography. The customer approached Steinmeyer with a demanding set of requirements. The motion system needed flexibility to provide fine adjustment during processing and coarse movement into a service position outside the optical path. Travel of 160mm was required in the horizontal axis and 50mm in the vertical axis, with speeds up to 50mm/sec and repeatability of better than 2 microns. The mask also needed to tilt as much as 1.5 degrees around the optical axis. Finally, the dry nitrogen atmosphere and strict boundaries on contamination levels made the choice of materials and lubricants challenging.

 

Steinmeyer Mechatronik, a division of Steinmeyer, designed an innovative multi-drive configuration. It features stainless steel, 12 x 5 preloaded ball screws. Two vertical drives enable both translation and tilt. A stage supporting both vertical drives moves the mask horizontally. The mask frame with the associated pivot points are magnetically preloaded, which enables easy service plus backlash-free tilt. Further, the motor encoder assembly is easily detachable for quick servicing.

motion control - Ball screws

motion control - Steinmeyer

Special design elements regarding coatings and ball screw lubricants were also incorporated to address demands unique to this application. An eUV absorbent coating was applied on all internal surfaces to minimize signal scattering. Also, a highly specialized lubricant was selected. This PFPE oil is chemically stable under eUV exposure while exhibiting extremely low outgassing. It is also thermally stable, nonflammable, and insoluble in water, acids, bases, and most organic solvents.

The Result

The customer completed the full acceptance testing of the system. They are thrilled by the combination of coarse and fine movement in one mechanism. Plus, the system greatly speeds their process of mask testing.

Motion Control – Two Axis X-Theta Voice Coil Positioning System from H2W Technologies

Motion Control – Two Axis X-Theta Positioning System

motion control stage

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control – H2W Technologies introduces a high acceleration, voice coil driven, XY-Theta positioning stage with a precision bearing system, which minimizes the amount of pitch, yaw, and roll in the system.  The voice coil stage (VCS02-005-BS-01-MXYTh) is a closed loop positioning system that can be used for positioning applications that require a limited rotation theta stage integrated. The stage utilizes a custom low-profile design that utilizes a unique electromagnetic circuit design. The motor has a two-axis planar coil assembly that interacts with a common magnetic circuit.  This circuit design allows for a minimal overall height of 2.93 inches [74.5 mm].

Each linear axis has a 0.23″ [6.0 mm] stroke; generate 0.50 lbs [2.2 N] of continuous force and 1.50 lbs [6.6 N] of peak force.  The X and Y axes are guided by precision linear ball slide assemblies. It includes a one-micron resolution magnetic linear encoder on each linear axis.  The theta axis has a rotary displacement of 10 degrees, a continuous torque of 2.2 in-lbs [0.25 Nm], and a peak torque of 6.5 in-lbs [0.73 Nm]. There is also encoder feedback on the theta axis that has 239000 counts per revolution. This design utilizes a moving coil in all three axes, which has a lower moving mass that enables the highest possible acceleration. Voice coil positioning stages are ideal for applications that require quick, short moves with fast settling times.

Features:

  • – Three-axis motion control 
  • – High acceleration 
  • – Compact footprint 
  • – Custom strokes and force configurations available 
  • – Cable carrier to route customer payload cables

Motion Control – Linear Focus Actuator from Equipment Solutions!

Motion Control – Linear Focus Actuator

 

Equipment Soultions

Forestville, CA – The LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator is a high performance compact positioning system.  It was specifically developed for optical applications requiring both high precision and high-speed positioning over a short to medium stroke.  The LFA-1205 is well suited for optical focusing and other micropositioning applications such as scanning interferometry, surface structure analysis, disk drive testing, autofocus systems, confocal microscopy, bio-technology, semiconductor test equipment.  Note that this motor is normally configured with an analog position feedback sensor and can be optionally equipped with a digital quadrature feedback element.    The key to this products immense success is its novel tubular architecture.  This arrangement provides a means to send the optical path directly through the middle of the motor.  The moving optic attached to the motors ‘C-mount’ is not cantilevered and so has no torques.  The LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator is directly compatible with the SCA814 Servo Controlled Amplifier.

 

  • 12 Millimeter clear aperture
  • 5 millimeters of linear motion
  • <50 nanometer positioning repeatability
  • Small Step Response of <1 millisecond
  • Threaded lens mount 70 x 70 x 50 millimeters, 600 grams

 

By design, the LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator rotates approximately 0.1 degrees or 1.7 milliradians for every 1 millimeter of translation.  Through manufacturing tolerances only there can be a small amount of pitch and roll motion that is induced during the intended translation.  These small but real error sources are routinely characterized during the manufacturing process  using our AC400 Digital Autocollimator to control product uniformity.

Motion Control – Precisely Measure Curvature and Angles with New Dual-axis Pitch and Roll Stages!

Motion Control – Dual-axis Pitch and Roll Stages!

motion control | Pitch-and-Roll Stage

OES Logo

Van Nuys, CA – Motion Control – The precise measurements of angles and the curvature of objects are easily determined using two new Pitch and Roll stages just introduced by OES (Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc.). The PR100-45-01 (pictured) is driven by stepper motors and the PR100-45-02 is driven by brushless servo motors with quadrature incremental optical encoders.

The Pitch axis (lower stage) is a high precision goniometer stage which features preloaded cross roller guides and a high ratio worm drive for smooth motion over a range of travel of +/- 45 degrees. It has a typical accuracy of 0.05 degrees and repeatability of +/- 0.01 degrees. Additionally, this axis has end-of-travel limit switches.

The 100 mm diameter Roll axis (upper stage) has a 180:1 gear ratio for smooth motion and has a precise pattern of threaded holes for fixtures or tooling. This axis has an accuracy of 0.05 degrees and repeatability of +/-  0.01 degrees. The Roll axis has a Home signal for initialization. Each axis features a calibrated scale to visually display the angle. The maximum speed with stepper motors is 14 degrees/second and 45 degrees/second with servo motors.  The knobs of the stepper motors can be replaced with optional optical encoders for position verification.

The resolution of the PR100-45-01 stepper motor driven duel-axis stage depends on the resolution of the step motor driver resolution or the optical encoder if a servo motor is used. A resolution of 0.001 degrees equivalent to 3.6 arc-sec can be achieved using a10 micro-steps per step stepper motor driver or an encoder with a resolution of 500 cycles per revolution.

The PR100-45-02 that features servo motors and optical quadrature encoders are used for very precise closed loop operation and greater speeds. The PR100-45-01 and -02 stages can be ordered plug-and-play with a fully a compatible multi-axis motion controller from OES.
