Using Metrology to Measure and Enhance the Performance of a Positioning System


Conducting motion metrology is a critical step in understanding the performance of a motorized positioning system. In this white paper you will learn what positioning system metrology is, why it is important, how to conduct metrology and how to effectively use the results. Metrology is performed to ensure that a designer’s positioning system meets a set of required specifications once it is mechanically built. This paper focuses on precision motorized positioners under closed loop control.
