About this event

Special Interest Group Precision Motion Systems & Control

Location: NH Eindhoven Conference Centre, Koningshof Veldhoven, Netherlands (during the Precision Fair)


The deadline to receive short abstracts has been extended until 29th June 2020.

Please submit your short abstract via the website of our partner euspen.

This will be the first Special Interest Group meeting on Precision Motion Systems & Control.

Precision motion systems and their control are key elements for precision engineering, both for manufacturing applications as well as for measuring instruments. From one-dimensional systems to complex multi-axis machines, components for linear and angular guides, actuation, measurement and control of motion are needed for precision positioning tasks. Increasing demands on the throughput of manufacturing systems and measuring instruments lead to the development of motion systems with higher dynamics and corresponding challenges for position control.

As a consequence, the research on and the development of precision motion components, systems and their control is a focus area for industry and academia.

The intensive on-going work in this field led us to bring together an internationally co-ordinated meeting. We are delighted to bring together leading expertise globally to an open forum for focused presentations and discussions on precision motion components, systems and control.


Prof. Hans Butler from ASML, Netherlands will be presenting at our meeting.

We look forward to his presentation on “Mechatronic challenges in optical lithography” where he introduces the latest solutions for making smaller features already in operation today, and also looks ahead to future systems.

The mechatronic challenges and solutions associated with these techniques will be addressed.
