XY-Linear motor stages

For semiconductor applications and surface inspection machines we supply precison stages which are driven by linear motors. The stages are designed to the application requirements and are manufacatured in batches to realize an optimum price and performance ratio.

The challenges

Compact design, production floor space is expensive. High speed and accuracy without mechanical transmission components blablabla Low cost, high volume and flexible industries you need solutions ...Our way of working can be characterized as structured and transparent. Ultimately, partnering with PM is synonymous with close cooperation and customer satisfaction.

From conceptual idea to final product, PM uses a V-model for engineering design. For the system engineers at PM, the user requirements are always the starting point to any design process. To come up with the most suitable design, first a few abstraction steps are needed.


This brings the key technical challenges for each required function clearly into focus, so that a suitable design realization can be found. In this design phase, PM uses its core competence of development of computational tools to fully characterize a system before the first physical prototype is ever built. Our own Multibody Dynamics analysis tool has been specially developed for this purpose. In particular the following characteristics can be studied:
