IBS PRECISION ENGINEERING STARTS A NEW PROJECT TO ACHIEVE WIRELESS SENSING IN CLOSED LOOP CONTROL FOR HIGH PRECISION CONTACTLESS MAGLEV STAGES

Eindhoven (NL) based companies MI-Partners and IBS Precision Engineering have started the joint project “Wireless sensing in closed loop control for high precision contactless maglev stages”. The goal of this project, funded by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, is to implement wireless smart sensors for control at a high precision magnetically levitated (Maglev) stage. 

The development enables stage motion at high precision in an isolated environment such as a vacuum chamber, without disturbing forces from cables and issues with contamination.

In the project, IBS Precision Engineering will develop the new smart sensing wireless technology and integrate data processing within the system driver, after which the sensors will be mounted on the stage itself.
