6-axis Vacuum Compatible Positioning System

We have recently delivered a 6-axis vacuum-compatible precision motion system to AWE Aldermaston that is used to determine properties of x-ray diffraction crystals prior to installation into x-ray sensitive diagnostics for fielding on laser plasma experiments. The PC controlled ‘Two Crystal Characterisation Positioning System’ includes three stepper motor driven rotary tables and a 350 mm travel […]
