Automation for Additive Manufacturing, Dispensing, and Printed Electronics

Whether it’s fused deposition modeling or laser sintering, we have the precision motion control products ideal for your 3D printing and additive manufacturing needs. Utilizing the PRO, MPS or ANT Series of products along with the Automation 1 controller will enable your next generation of additive manufacturing machine to deliver higher quality products and tighter tolerances. We have solutions that can help with:

  • Field of View Constraints
  • Energy/Power Density Stability
  • Precision Dispensing Output Control Tied to Exact Position
  • Maximize Yield
  • Thermal Stability

HOW CAN WE HELP WITH YOUR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING NEEDS?

With Precision Controls:

  • Work-point calibrations reduces 3D stack-up errors at the work point
  • Software utilities unlock new levels of precision & throughput
  • Powerful hardware to improve system bandwidth & control
  • Advanced motion control features improve system bandwidth and speed
  • Position Synchronized Output (PSO) ties actual position of the dispensing head via linear encoder feedback to achieve consistent deposition and high part quality
  • Adjust the setting of an analog output in relationship to the real-time vector speed of two axes to enable automatic regulation of material dispensing
  • Integrated control tools for coordinating volume flow rate with motion

With Motors & Precision Positioning Stages:

  • Linear motors with minimal cogging to eliminate velocity ripple and ensure smooth printing paths
  • Reduced part feature sizes due to submicron positioning accuracies and repeatability
  • Multi-axis alignments of linear and rotary stage assemblies can include perpendicularity between axes and axes of intersection for rotaries
