 These machines facilitate production on the factory floor and increase productivity by
 automating tasks.

        Vibration Welding
                                        Parts are clamped together at forces up to
                                        8000 lbs.The 100A40 drives voice coils that
                                        vibrate the part at frequencies ranging from
                                        180Hz to 240Hz which causes enough friction
                                        to melt the plastic and create a weld. To
                                        increase efficiency the welder automatically
                                        adjusts the vibration frequency to match the
                                        natural frequency of the part.

                                        Linear vibration welders are used for irregularly
                                        shaped parts, while rotational vibration welders
                                        are used for round parts. Some machines are
                                        big enough accommodate parts as large as 36"
                                        x 48" (3ft x 4ft).

                                                  introduced. These machines can cut and strip more than 4000
                                                  pieces per hour! In fact, we use one of these machines here at
                                                  ADVANCED Motion Controls. We use it to cut wire to length and
                                                  strip it at both ends. The machine is programmable so you can set
                                                  the wire length then independently set the strip length and gap
                                                  widths at either end. To see what gap is, look at the big wire in the
                                                  image on the right. Leaving a piece of the jacket keeps the wire from being frayed
                                                  before installation.

                                         Warehouse AGV's and automated delivery vehicles account for the majority of
                                         applications in this industry. However, the demand for robotics outside of the industrial
                                         setting is steadily increasing. For example, personal and service robotics are expected
                                         to become major market segments in the coming years. Hardware is well developed and
                                         readily available such as servo systems, cameras, sensors, computers etc. However, the
                                         major obstacle has been software development and integration. Combining all of this
                                         technology into one cohesive unit has been difficult. Multiple companies are now
                                         developing generic software platforms that will make integration much easier and
                                         robotic systems more common place.

                                         After major earthquakes there can be mountains of unstable rubble and areas that are
                                         far too dangerous for search and rescue teams. Ground based AGV's are used in these
                                         dangerous areas to look for survivors and evaluate conditions for human rescuers.

       Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems




                                                                                                                 Electric Mobility and Mobile Robotics
                   AS/RS technology maximizes the utilization of vertical space in a
                   warehouse while reducing the labor required to store and retrieve
                   items. AS/RS machines typically consist of a base that operates on
                   a track running up and down a warehouse aisle, and a lift that can
                   reach to the top of the highest shelves. Depending on the needs of
                   the user and the size of the stored items, machines can be
                   designed to work with standard pallets or specialized bins.
                   Separate AS/RS machines are needed for each aisle in the
                   warehouse.

                   An AGV system is a good complement to an AS/RS. The AS/RS
                   pulls items from the
                   warehouse and passes
                   them off to the AGV.
                   The AGV then delivers
                   the bin to the location
                   where the item is
                   needed.          These
                   computerized systems
                   also enhance inventory
                   management.

                    The     large   vertical
                    translation and heavy
loads require extended peak current times from the servo drive during lifting and a
shunt regulator to handle regeneration during the descent.

                         These refer to higher value robots not "toy" type robots like
                         automatic vacuum cleaners and web enabled home
                         monitoring systems.

                         Personal Robotics is an emerging market with vast potential.
                         As the population ages and healthcare costs continue to rise
                         it is predicted that personal robots will enable people to live
                         at home longer before entering full time nursing facilities.

                            Servo applications include: assisting patients out of bed,
                            steadying them while entering the bathtub, retrieving
objects that are too high or too low to reach, simple cleaning duties and more. Non-
servo applications can include: companionship, reminding patients to take their
medications, reminding patients of their appointments and patient monitoring with
the ability to call for help in an emergency.

Robots will first appear in long-term care facilities, but as prices come down they will
be seen more in the home.

  The entertainment industry blends an unconventional mix of art, physics and
  engineering to create experiences that viewers will never forget. Motion control can be
  found throughout the industry including movies, theatre, museums, theme parks and
  more.


          Animatronics
                             CGI (computer-generated imagery) is the technology of choice
                             for special effects but this doesn't mean animatronics have
                             been relegated to obscurity!

                             Star Wars and Aliens relied heavily on animatronics but even
                             recent films such as Jurassic Park
                             and Harry Potter made use of this
                             technology for some effects.

                          Beyond     the   silver    screen,
                          animatronics can also be found in
                          theme    parks   and    museums.
                          Animated characters have a range
   of complexity from simple on/off motion to sophisticated
   multi-axis coordination and kinematics. Many of these
   characters can be seen on theme park rides and shows.
   Museums use animatronics in dinosaur exhibits where they
   move and roar at passers-by.

                      Camera Control (Movies and Television)
Entertainment


                                                 Certain camera effects require that the camera is
                                                 accurately tracked and the motion is exactly
                                                 repeatable. This is especially important when
                                                 combining live action with CGI effects. It's already
                                                 difficult to realistically mix CGI with live actors, but
                                                 when the camera moves the difficulty increases
                                                 dramatically. The reason: when the camera moves,
                                                 the perspective, location, lighting and relative size of
                                                 the CGI character must change to match the relative
                                                 movement of the live actors. A servo controlled
                                                 camera makes it possible to film the scene with or
                                                 without actors repeatedly and then port the motion
                                                 into the CGI process to verify that the point of view
                                                 is correct.

                                               Important requirements in this application are
                                               repeatability and acoustic silence. Movie directors
                are very demanding and if unwanted noise gets picked up on the audio track, the
                offending piece of equipment may be kicked off the set.

                                 Anyone who has been to Las Vegas has probably seen
                                 the Fountains of Bellagio. The dancing water, light, and
                                 sound effects show in the lake in front of Bellagio has
                                 become an iconic Sin City visual. It takes a team of 36
                                 engineers to run the show, controlling more than 1,200
                                 water-shooting devices, 5,000 lights, and a sound
                                 system cranking out more than 56,000 watts of eardrum
                                 pounding      music.      The
                                 computerized system pumps
                                 water from the 22 million
   gallon lake into pressurized tubes that shoot the water in
   whatever direction they happen to be pointing based upon
   the intricate choreography.

   208 water guns controlled by ADVANCED Motion Controls
   servo drives make the water appear to dance in time to the
   music. They pivot and swivel, allowing the comparatively thin streams of water they
   emit to go up, right and left, and forward toward the street or backward toward the
   hotel.

   Water features powered by ADVANCED Motion Controls can also be found in many
   plazas and other public places.

Homeland Security and Defense



                                 In the military, automation is seen as the key to reducing casualties and increasing
                                 soldier effectiveness. Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV’s) have been one of the largest
                                 contributors for growth. With Homeland Security the goal is to keep the population safe,
                                 so you will see devices such as X-ray scanners and explosives 'sniffers'.


                                        Land Based Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV)
                                                                   ROV's are used in situations
                                                                   where it's too dangerous or

                                                                   •   Bomb / Mine detection &

                                                                   •   Standing guard in exposed

                                                                   •   Combat duty. We are seeing more ROV's equipped with
                                                                        weapons.

                                  Typical Requirements

                                  •   Low voltage – 20 to 80VDC
                                  •   High Current – 30 to +100A peak on the drive wheels
                                  •   Lightweight and small package size
                                  •   High Efficiency – to conserve batteries
                                  •   Rugged and high quality design - depending on the quantity
                                      involved we can build to shock and vibration specifications,
                                      however it is more common for the OEM to reinforce internal
                                      components themselves.

                                  To reduce cost and better tailor the drive to the application, custom designs are very
                                  common. Current loop tuning will make the system more efficient and responsive.
                                  Other modifications include: increased current output, customized peak/continuous
                                  profiles, size/shape modifications to help integrate the drive into the chassis,
                                  connectorization, removal of pots & switches, multi-axis solutions, etc.

Automated X-ray for luggage/parcels
               Automated x-ray systems are used to inspect the high volumes
               of luggage and parcels at airports. These systems are installed
               behind the scenes, in-line with the baggage handling system.
               They inspect checked luggage (vs. carry-on) and are the
               fastest in the industry. Machines use Computed Tomography
               (CT) to analyze material properties to look for matches with
               known explosives. Suspected materials are displayed on a
               screen for the operator to determine if there is a real threat.

 These machines increase yields and productivity by automating repetitive and tedious
 tasks. Samples need to be created, moved, sorted and tracked. Some machines do
 these tasks in temperature controlled enclosures while others do them in the open.


         Electronics Testing
                                  These machines are capable of testing capacitors and
                                  varistors at production rates of up to 9,000 chips per
                                  minute. Multiple tests are simultaneously performed on
                                  chips as small as 0402 on an advanced handler using
                                  non-jamming patented rotary technology.

Metrology




                                                                                                              Inspection, Testing & Rapid Prototyping
                  Metrology is the physical measurement of objects. This can
                  be simple one dimensional measurements such as length,
                  or full 3-dimensional scans.

                  The profilometer shown on the left makes 3D non-contact
                  measurements using lasers with phase shift interferometry.
                  The Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) on the right has
                  interchangeable measuring options including Vision, Touch,
                  Analog Scanning and Laser.

                  Metrology machines are used on the production floor for
                  dimensional inspection for real-time quality control. They
                  are also used for reverse engineering or to quickly import
                  an object into a 2D or 3D CAD model.

Rapid Prototyping
                       These machines transform virtual 3-D models on the
                       computer into exact physical replicas (with 0.0015 inch
                       accuracy). Structures are built by putting down one thin
                       layer at a time. There are two basic methods. One
                       involves "printing" (through an ink-jet process) liquid
                       adhesive on fine-powder layers of plaster. The other uses
                       a nozzle to deposit layers of molten polymer on a support
                       structure. Finished pieces can be used:

                       •   As-is for end-use parts
                       •   For fabrication and assembly purposes
                       •   As prototypes before remanufacturing to the final mate-
                           rial (such as metal or plastic).

                       Newer machines boast large build envelopes (36x24x36
                       inches) for large parts.

                                               range of several 100’s to several 1000’s of compounds.
                                               By automating the reaction and cleavage sorting
                                               operations, the automated sorter is capable of handling
                                               large libraries of discrete compounds rapidly and
                                               efficiently.

               Micro arrayers produce arrays of
               DNA, proteins, cell lysates and
               other samples by depositing them
               onto a substrate. The process is
               equivalent to printing grids of
               microscopic dots with sub-micron
               positioning accuracy. These arrays
               are particularly useful for high
               throughput analysis of protein
               levels    and    post-translational
               modifications, which in turn are
               key in biomarker identification and
               drug discovery programs.

Medical



           The medical industry is characterized by a diverse number of applications ranging from
           critical care to diagnostics to patient comfort. Since human life is at stake, the final
           product must meet federal safety standards in addition to normal engineering design
           standards. These include: UL, CE, ISO, low voltage, increased isolation, low noise,
           safety features, safety record, reliability, size/shape/form-factor, application specific.

           We have proven ourselves in many respects: from our ability to envision what the
           customer wants, to implementing the agreed upon solution, to proving ourselves as a
           reliable supplier of quality servo drives.


                   Patient Handling
                                                    This includes patient beds, operating tables and
                                                    treatment tables. Under servo control, tables can
                                                    rise, lower and tilt. In the case of medical imaging
                                                    such as MRI and CT, an automated table can have
                                                    up to 7 axes of motion all coordinated with each
                                                    other and with the imager. The table and the
                                                    imaging system work together to obtain detailed
                                                    3D images by observing the area of interest from
                                                    many angles.

                                    patient in and out of the imaging
                                    area are a given. For MRI and CT,
                                    servos can also be used to control the imaging
                                    ring.

                                    In recent years imaging machines
                                    have received a face lift with the
introduction of dynamic imaging plates that move around the patient
instead of the patient moving in front of the machine. Even though the
plates are connected to independent control arms, the plates always
remain parallel with each other with the patient lying or standing in the
middle. The kinematics behind this type of motion is very complex but
our servo drives are up to the task.

       Haptic Surgery Robot
Surgery requires a steady hand and microsurgery even more so. The word 'haptic'
means 'touch'. A haptic device gives the user force feedback so they can sense how
strong the device is holding onto something. Haptic feedback coupled with electronic
gearing gives the surgeon the ability to perform intricate procedures that would be
completely impossible if attempted by hand. Force feedback lets the surgeon 'feel' how
the scalpel is cutting or how the suture needle is penetrating. Electronic gearing takes
the surgeons movements and miniaturizes them and makes them more precise. The
result is faster more precise surgeries and the introduction of new procedures that
were previously impossible.

           Radio Surgery
Medical


                                          Similar to diagnostic imaging, however the
                                          projected radiation is used to destroy cancer
                                          growths and tumors instead of diagnosing them.
                                          X-rays or heavy particles are projected from
                                          many sources and converged to a point within
                                          the brain. The beams are not individually strong
                                          enough to cause damage, but when the beams
                                          meet at the convergence point, the combined
                                          energy is enough to destroy the affected tissue.
                                          This allows the surgeon to remove diseased
                                          tissue without damaging healthy parts of the
                                          brain.

                                          Before surgery, the tumor must be carefully
                                          mapped using an integrated CT or MRI. This
                                          ensures that only the affected tissue is treated.

                                          Radio Surgery reduces complications and
                                          recovery times. Because there is no incision the
                                          occurrence of infection, hemorrhaging and
                                          damage to surrounding tissue can be eliminated.
                                          Some conventional surgeries that require a 15-
                                          day recovery at the hospital can be treated as an
                                          outpatient procedure using radio surgery!

           Remote Breast Exam
                                       This technology is in development and is listed on
                                       our University Outreach page. Remote breast exams
                                       will make it possible for a doctor to perform
                                       examinations in third world countries where it is
                                       impractical for the doctor to visit every village.
                                       Instead, the breast exam machines will be taken
                                       from village to village and doctors will be able to
                                       perform exams from a central location.

Ventilation (Respiratory)




                                                                                                                    Medical
                       For obvious reasons patient ventilation is a critical
                       application. Servo drives must be absolutely reliable to
                       work in this application.

                       One type of ventilator uses a turbine that eliminates the
                       need for an additional air compressor which makes it
                       much more portable. The ventilator can move with the
                       patient from the Emergency Room to the Operating
                       Room to Recovery. A custom B12A6 precisely accelerates
                       and decelerates a turbine to ventilate the patient.

                       Another type of ventilator uses small pulses of oscillating
                       air at 3-15Hz that is superimposed on a bias pressure
                       that keeps the lungs open. High Frequency Oscillatory
                       Ventilation provides better flow and gas diffusion while
                       reducing the chance for lung injury. One version of this
                       machine is designed for neonatal and pediatric patients
                       while another version is for adults. A standard 30A8
                       drives a piston driven diaphragm.

Drug and Contrast Dye Injection
                       Contrast Dyes are used to enhance images on MRI, CT
                       and x-rays. Servo controlled injectors deliver dye or
                       medication with more accuracy and better rate regulation
                       than humans can.

                       Active control means less contrast is needed to perform
                       procedures. A linear actuator functions like a syringe to
                       control the exact flow rate. Flow and pressure sensors are
                       used to enhance feedback.

           Corrective Eye Surgery
Medical


                                  Laser eye surgery is commonplace, but have you ever
                                  wondered how it works? The laser points into a set of
                                  mirrors that position the laser on an X-Y plane. The
                                  mirrors are controlled by a pair of servos, one for each
                                  axis of motion. Position accuracy is important but the
                                  thing that makes this extremely difficult is the ability to
                                  track and compensate for the constant involuntary eye
                                  movements of the patient. To achieve this you need to
                                  first be able to track the eye, then you need a servo
                                  system that is fast enough to respond to the constant
                                  changes. These are very high bandwidth systems capable
                                  of extreme accuracy.

           Resuscitation
                                  Even when rested, it's difficult for a rescuer to perform
                                  CPR with good technique. As the rescuer begins to fatigue
                                  - usually only after a few minutes - the compression
                                  efficiency progressively gets worse. During a heart
                                  attack, standard CPR performed by an expert only
                                  maintains about 10 percent of normal blood flow!
                                  Portable chest compressors are the answer to this
                                  problem and have proven themselves to be better at
                                  delivering blood flow during cardiac arrest.

                                  New technologies have been developed to automate the
                                  pumping action during a heart attack that provides blood
                                  flow rates near 100 percent! These portable servo-
                                  controlled units automatically compensate for patient size
                                  and efficiently pump the heart for up to 30 minutes per
                                  charge. Many lives have already been saved by these
                                  devices.

                                                 This is not a traditional industry for servo drives, however we have found success in
                                                 several types of applications.

                                                 Power generation from alternative renewable sources can come from the wind, sun and
                                                 sea. These applications use servo drives for positioning of the collecting device or to act
                                                 as part of the generation system using the servo drive's regeneration capability.

                                                                                  funding is orders of magnitude greater. Test sites can
                                                                                  use 100's of servo drives while full sized solar farms

                                                  To maintain the highest efficiency the mirrors need to be accurately positioned which
                                                  makes this an ideal job for servo drives. Servo drives also make it possible to react
                                                  quickly and smoothly to put the mirrors into a "safe" position during high winds. A
                                                  major safety requirement is to always know where the reflected light is directed. For
                                                  example you would never want the reflected light to pass over a highway or other
                                                  sensitive area. Without computer safety oversight and servos, this situation could
                                                  conceivably happen during a maintenance operation.

                                                      One wind generator uses a large
                                                      helium filled balloon as the turbine.
                                                      The servo drives are used to get the
                                                      balloon spinning during launch while
                                                      at low altitude. As the balloon lifts into
                                                      the low altitude nocturnal jet stream
      (600 to 1000 feet) it no longer needs to be turned by the drives. This is when the
      drives switch the direction of the torque and begin to capture the regeneration energy.
      This application generates 10-25kW of power and is targeted for temporary power
      generation in remote areas.

             Fuel Cells
                               Fuel cells create electricity by reacting fuel on the anode side and
                               an oxidant on the cathode side in the presence of an electrolyte.
                               The fuel can be in the form of hydrogen, hydrocarbons and
                               alcohols. Oxygen is the predominant oxidant and can be taken
                               directly from air.

                               Air going into the fuel cell needs to be compressed and precisely
                               controlled. To do this efficiently, high speed centrifugal pumps
                               similar to the superchargers found on cars are used. The servo
                               drive controls the motor that drives the pump. The servo drive
                               will typically be in Hall Velocity mode and maintain speeds of
                               around 50,000 rpm.

         Welding
                                    Positioning and wire feeders are used on welding
                                    robots. Often times the parts to be welded are not in
                                    a straight line or on one plane. Welding robots can
                                    weld curved surfaces and around corners with more
                                    consistency and faster than human welders.

                                                             Question: Why would a customer want to use
                                                             servos for a grinding wheel? Wouldn't an AC

                                                            Answer: A servo controlled grinding wheel
                                                            maintains the same speed regardless of load. They
                                                            can also accelerate/decelerate in
                                                            a controlled fashion as well as hit
                                                            target velocities to match the
                                                            grinding application. The result is
                            better uniformity for automated processes - the same applies to
                            polishers and sanders.

                                                                                                                              Semiconductor
 The semiconductor industry has some of the most demanding applications in motion
 control. A combination of extreme accuracy and precision combined with high
 throughput, makes for exciting technology.

 Semiconductor processing can be divided into two parts - "front-end" and "back-end".

 Front-end refers to the fabrication from a blank wafer to a completed wafer (i.e. the
 microchips are created but they are still on the wafer). Back-end refers to dicing the
 wafer into individual chips and all the processes thereafter; such as test, assembly and
 packaging.

 AMC controls the motion in both front-end and back-end processes.


      Front End
 Many front-end processes involve spinning the wafer. This sounds easy at first until you
 realize that the inertial mismatch between the wafer fixture and motor can easily be
 upwards of 2000:1 for a direct drive system. This presents a tuning problem if trying
 to maintain excellent velocity and position response. ADVANCED Motion Controls
 drives have the tools to get this application tuned in short order.


        Wafer Handling / Transfer
                                       Wafers need to be quickly and gently transferred
                                       from process to process. Wafer handling robots
                                       powered with servos are the standard method.
                                       Robots are typically in a SCARA configuration
                                       (Selective Compliant Articulated Robot Arm)
                                       where servos can control all axes including
                                       shoulder, elbow and wrist.

Semiconductor


                                                The box that holds the wafers is called a "FOUP"
                                                (Front Opening Unified Pod). A FOUP full of wafers
                                                is an expensive payload so it must be handled
                                                with the greatest care. AMC drives are relied upon
                                                to transport these important packages.

                                          Chamber doors need to be opened and closed to seal in
                                          process materials for various steps during wafer
                                          fabrication. Servos provide excellent control for this
                                          application.

                 Spin Rinse Dry
                                   Just like it sounds. The wafer is brought up to speed in a very
                                   controlled fashion. Once spinning, de-ionized water is evenly
                                   sprayed onto the wafer to rinse off the chemicals used in the
                                   previous process. Then centrifugal drying and heated nitrogen
                                   combine to remove water and latent moisture.

       Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP)
                                  An abrasive process used for polishing the surface
                                  of the wafer flat. It involves the use of chemical
                                  slurries and a circular (sanding) action to polish the
                                  surface of the wafer smooth. A smooth surface is
                                  necessary to maintain correct focus during the
                                  photolithography process. CMP is required multiple
                                  times during wafer fabrication.

                                This process requires vibration free and exact
                                velocity control with no velocity ripple. AMC servo
                                drives have the right tuning tools to get the tuning
done quickly so you can move on with your design.

                                                       During photolithography, laser light is passed
                                                       through the reticle containing the image of one
                                                       or more die. The image is then projected onto
                                                       the wafer. Since the whole wafer isn't treated at
                                                       the same time, the wafer needs to be moved so
                                                       the next die can receive the image. The machine
                                                       used to do all of this is called a "stepper"
                                                       because it does one die or a few die at a time,
                                                       then steps to the next die or set of die until it
                                                       has exposed the entire wafer.

                       Wafer Inspection
                                                     This is an optical inspection of the wafer to look

                                                     damage in the fabricated wafer. For this process,
                                                     the wafers must be correctly positioned in front of

                               process that the chips are tested to see if
                               they work as designed. The chips are still
                               on the wafer and are functionally tested
                               using a test fixture with needles that
                               make contact with the circuits on the
                               surface of the chip. Probes send and
                               measure signal responses from the chips.

Dice
                       This process takes the completed wafer and slices
                       it into individual chips. A circular dicing blade is
                       used to slice the chips. This is an ideal application
                       for servo motion on both the blade control and
                       positioning.

Ball Bump / Flip Chip

                                 A modern alternative to wire bonding, flip chips
                                 are mounted "upside-down". Hence the name
                                 "flip chip". Instead of wires connected around the
                                 periphery of the chip as in wire bonding, an array
                                 of "bumps" are formed on the surface of the chip.
                                 These bumps are then used as connection points
                                 from the chip to the outer package. The
                                 advantages of flip chip technology include:

                                 •   Better connections to the chip as opposed to
                                     wire bonding where the wires add extra length,
                                     capacitance and inductance that limit signal
                                     speed.
                                 •   More attachment points available since the
                                     whole area of the chip is available instead of
                                     just the edges
                                 •   Faster production
                                 •   Smaller overall package size

             Simulators
Simulators



              Simulators provide safe and cost effective training for military, civil service and civilian
              occupations. Fighter planes, airliners, police cruisers, military vehicles, fire trucks and
              semi trailers are all represented.


                      Simulators
                                                       Realism begins with making control devices
                                                       with force feedback such as steering wheels,
                                                       control     yokes     or    joysticks.  Further
                                                       enhancements include seat shakers and
                                                       realistic transmissions (yes our servo drives
                                                       spin a transmission which forces the user to
                                                       correctly synchronize the clutch, gas and stick
                                                       shift). The final ingredient
                                                       is full articulation of the
                                                       cockpit which can simulate
                                                       lateral   and    longitudinal
                                                       acceleration as well as pitch
                                                       and roll.

              Full articulation isn't just for airplanes, it also produces the
              sensation of being thrown into the back of your seat when you
              punch the gas in an Indy car and pushes you to the side when you
              scream through the first corner in an oval track.

              In addition to training, simulators are becoming more popular in entertainment. From
              race car leagues to glorified arcade games we're seeing more and more applications.
