Site Objectives

The objective of our site is to provide useful tools and reference documents in support of positioning systems development, application engineering and

end user training. 


This site includes numerous interactive web forms, developed by Optinet inc. The tools allow users to enter parameters which define their need, such as

motion profiles and accuracy. They may also include design parameters, such as Abbe offsets, component specifications, such as rail stiffness and operation

variables, such as maximum acceleration.  At a click of a button, the tools then provide a list of output variables, such as throughput, 3D accuracy, reliability,

life and estimated cost, which characterize system cost / performance. The tools may therefore be useful in comparing cost / performance of several

machine configurations and  positioning components, assisting the decision making process of selecting the most cost / effective solution for the application.
