The dime is the smallest of all U.S. coins, so the ability of anyone to be able to “turn on a dime” was considered a pretty impressive feat.
In a sophisticated manufacturing facility, that’s no longer good enough.
Precise motion control means being able to deliver not anything as pedestrian as a dime’s size, but one thousandth the thickness of the dime—and when it comes to semiconductor manufacturing, divide that by another thousand. As part of an interconnected system that includes robotics, motors and multi-axis assemblies, the need for precision is paramount. As a result, the work done by engineers to refine and focus motion control and positioning now needs a pinpoint as its guiding principle.
