Science & Technology

Science & Technology covers a variety of different applications, starting with microscopy via beamline processes through to the wide field of laboratory automation.  These applications range from simple single-axis linear positioners to exotic multi-axis hexapods. 

They all have one thing in common: precise positioning systems are required to operate under extremely varying conditions. Manufacturers in this industry require high accuracy and repeatability and smoothness in their linear or rotary motion. Electromate offers a range of components for automation systems for science and laboratory automation systems. Learn more below!

5D Motion Simulator – Galil Motion Controllers for Simulators

Have you ever wondered how simulation machines move so precisely and accurately depict the reality of the situation being portrayed? Galil motion controllers are, in part, to thank for this in InMotion Simulation’s machines worldwide.

Galil Controller for Motion Simulator

The Force-Dynamics’ Motion Simulator System (MSS) provides a hyper-realistic, high-sensory motion simulation experience. It can even allow you to feel G-forces such as you might experience in an Indy race car as it accelerates. The high degree of sensitivity and flexibility in movement, as well as the hyper-realistic feeling it provides, is what differentiates the MSS from other motion simulators.

Leaf Analysis Using Motion Controllers

Dr. Dan Chitwood researches how to grow drought-resistant crops in order to combat climatic stresses, chronic water shortages that impact agricultural output, and population pressures demanding more crop yield. He aims to learn how to engineer crops to be resilient to high temperatures and flourish with less water by using genetic resources from naturally drought resistant wild tomato plants. By analyzing these wild plants, he hopes to create domestic plants with the wild relative’s resistance to drought.

maxon Motors for Telescopes

The HETDEX project (Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment) is the first major attempt to find and examine “dark energy” in the universe. Through this project, we are able to record three-dimensional positions of one million galaxies using special spectrographs. In the summer of 2012, the Hobby-Eberly Telescope began scanning the universe with the help of maxon motors for telescopes.
