We would like to reassure you that this SIG meeting on Precision Motion Systems & Control will be going ahead as planned in November. This will either be in the form of a hybrid conference or as a virtual conference. We are welcoming all delegates; those able to join us physically at Brabanthallen and those choosing to join us virtually.
euspen is delighted to announce that it will be co-supporting the Precisiebeurs 2020 in Den Bosch, Netherlands.
The location has been selected to ensure both delegates and attendees of each event can experience something unique and different for 2020.
In conjunction with euspen‘s first SIG meeting on Precision Motion Systems & Control, delegates will have the opportunity of attending the Precisiebeurs (Precision Fair) taking place on the 18th and 19th November 2020. This platform will bring together an international delegation from the euspen community to the well-established trade show which dominates the Netherlands in November.
With over 280 specialized companies active the field of e.g. precision engineering, motion control, surface treatment, micro technology, micro assembly and optics, this is the place to be for our euspen community.
Precision motion systems and their control are key elements for precision engineering, both for manufacturing applications as well as for measuring instruments. From one-dimensional systems to complex multi-axis machines, components for linear and angular guidance, actuation, measurement and control of motion are needed for precision positioning tasks. Increasing demands on the throughput of manufacturing systems and measuring instruments lead to the development of motion systems with higher dynamics and corresponding challenges for position control. As a consequence, the research on and the development of advanced precision motion components, systems and their control are focus areas for industry and academia.
The first euspen Special Interest Group (SIG) on Precision Motion Systems & Control meeting will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government agencies to discuss state-of-the-art practice, and key research and development in the area of precision engineering associated with Precision Motion Systems & Control. The meeting includes keynote presentations, oral sessions, posters and training seminars covering the newest developments and research.
The intensive on-going work in this area led us to bring together this first internationally-coordinated meeting and we are seeking papers in the following categories, which are given for orientation, however, possible contributions are not limited to these:
Precision guide components and systems
- Advanced guides (advanced materials, …) and bearing (air, magnetic, …) systems
- Measurement methods and modelling approaches of guide performance parameter
