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 second 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 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
- Linear and angular actuators
- Linear and angular position measurement systems
- Motion controllers and drive amplifiers
- New approaches in control algorithms
- Multi-axis positioning systems
- High dynamic positioning systems
- Vibration isolation and active damping systems
- Modelling and analysis of high performance mechatronics designs
- System identification, testing and trouble-shooting
The local hosts and organizing committee for the Special Interest Group meeting on Precision Motion Systems & Control are :- Prof. Andreas Archenti from KTH, SE; Dick Laro, MI-Partners, NL; Dr. Jens Flügge from PTB, DE; Prof. José Yagüe-Fabra, University of Zaragoza, ES; Markus Hauf from Carl Zeiss, DE and Dr. Theo Ruijl, MI-Partners, NL
