Is A Direct Drive Linear Motor Powering Your CMM?

Linearity is a term used to describe mathematical relationships, but it also refers to a type of high-performance motor. Basically, the technology uses linear motion to move a payload at a specified acceleration, speed, travel distance and accuracy. You’ll see linear motors used in gimbals, rotary tables, 6-axis robot arms and coordinate measuring machines like AIMS’ 5-axis LM and its new Summit 10.10.10.
