    What makes a CNC control good for moldmaking [6 factors]

    More and more, mold makers rely on high-speed cutting. Whereas EDM was once the clear choice, CNC machines have proven capable of not only meeting the necessary tolerance and finish requirements, but also streamlining processes. The right control plays a big part in accomplishing all of this. The CN…

    How to choose the right encoders for semiconductor machinery

    You can have all the bandwidth, AI, or optics in the world, but none of it matters if a semiconductor tool cannot meaningfully reach nanometer level precision without compromising its throughput. When the goal is to make precise measurements as quickly as possible, the max speed of a motion system’s…

    Controlling Motion in 9 Challenging Environments

    When it comes to choosing motion control equipment, there are countless variables to consider. The type of motion and speed are good first steps, but the environment will almost always need to be factored in too.  Uncommon settings, like high radiation, extreme temperatures and explosive environment…
