Linear motion systems are found inside countless machines… precision laser cutting systems, laboratory automation equipment, semiconductor fabrication machines, CNC machines, factory automation, and many others too numerous to list. They range from the relatively simple, such as an inexpensive seat actuator in a passenger vehicle, to a complex multi-axis coordinate system, complete with control and drive electronics for closed loop positioning. No matter how simple or complex the linear motion system, at the most basic level they all have one thing in common… moving a load through a linear distance in a specific amount of time.
