Lunch Lecture May 8 hosted by MI – Partners

Control of a rotating MagLev sample manipulator.

MI-Partners has developed and built a prototype sample manipulator that has a +/- 1 mm stroke in X, Y and Z and an infinite stroke around the vertical (Z) axis. The stage is magnetically levitated and actuated in 6 DOF. Such a manipulator can e.g. be used in the beamline of a synchrotron. In this presentation, mechatronic architecture is presented with focus on the sensor layout, control architecture and controller design.

The speaker will be: Ronald Faassen, Sr. Architect Dynamics & Control, MI-Partners

This lecture ( only for members of the DSPE) will start at: May 8 on 12:02pm (Teams digital)
