Key Factors to Assess and Reduce Error in Multi-Axis Motion Systems

May 16, 2023
Want to know how your multi-axis motion system will perform before you build it? Learn about sources of error, why they matter and how to determine a system-level error budget, along with techniques to minimize errors and validate your estimates.

Modern manufacturing processes are generating increasingly complex part geometries and continually shrinking tolerances. Semiconductor chips, jet turbine blades and live-saving medical devices such as stents and heart valves require extremely high levels of process and inspection tool performance to produce. Machine builders must have a deep and thorough understanding of component-level errors to build highly accurate manufacturing and test systems. This article provides a framework to estimate and analyze work point errors in multi-axis motion systems.
