Note: There are no clothing restrictions or protection equipment required. Dress code is casual. Also, there are several friendly dogs that are often at Zaber. They will be kept close to their owners during your visit, but please feel free to approach them if you are comfortable.
Join our Applications Engineering team for an introduction to the basics of precision motion control as we illustrate important considerations in the use of positioning devices. We will present application examples demonstrating the control of some sample systems and introduce our new linear motor devices. We will also tour Zaber's office, where our devices are designed and built. Zaber Technologies designs and manufactures precision motion control devices with optional integrated controllers and encoders. This workshop will be useful to engineers and scientists interested in learning more about accurate and precise motion control and to those who would like to discuss their own applications. Applications include photonics and optics, life sciences, microscopy, and industrial automation.
