High Precision

In high-precision equipment many actuators with their power electronics are assembled in large motion systems which can achieve (sub-) nanometer position accuracy. Smarter actuator and power electronics solutions, in which multiple degrees-of-freedom, magnetic levitation, and contactless energy transfer are integrated in one design, will improve the accuracy, the speed and the acceleration of these systems. Research into all transient aspects of energy conversion must be carried out to create a new generation of high-precision systems. The projects which are currently conducted by the EPE group for the high precision industry are:
