High-end motion systems for the electronics industry
The continuous miniaturization of components drives rapid advances in the electronics industry. The basis for increasingly smaller chips in front-end production and higher density circuits in back-end production is the continuously improved accuracy of the measuring and motion technology employed. Motion platforms from ETEL, featuring HEIDENHAIN encoders, and ETEL motion and position controllers, deliver exceptional accuracy and outstanding performance.

ETEL motors: unique technology and wide variant diversity
ETEL offers an extensive range of standard linear motors and standard torque motors for nearly any customer requirement. They all feature a unique zero-cogging design for outstanding peak power density and unparalleled thermal efficiency. The benefits for precision are considerable.
RTMB+, TUCANA ST and AQUARIUS ST:
more possibilities for turret handling
Even though it is clear that miniaturization is the main driving force in R&D for the semiconductor and electronics industry, procedures for packaging and inspection must also be able to handle ever larger components. Naturally while maintaining a maximum of performance and process reliability. It is exactly for these applications that the RTMB+ indexing tables from ETEL offer a high load capacity paired with high speeds. When equipped with the TUCANA ST and AQUARIUS ST short stroke actuators, the turret handlers do not apply any loads to the chips and wafers during packaging and inspection.
AccurET and UltimET: the modular system for motion and position control
UltimET motion controllers and AccurET position controllers deliver powerful performance in an extremely compact form factor, thereby improving machine accuracy and throughput while saving space. Thanks to their standardized design and modular architecture, machine builders can easily integrate them into their mechanical design.
These controllers can be used with all servomotors available on the market. Their decentralized architecture ensures the same high level of performance and speed regardless of the number of axes being controlled. This distributed architecture also facilitates cabling, on-site maintenance, installation, and servicing.
Optimized for dynamic, high-accuracy applications in the electronics industry: exposed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN
Exposed linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN are optimized for implementation in dynamic, high-accuracy machines such as those required by the electronics industry. Extremely robust and resistant to contamination, they deliver high long-term stability but are also quick and easy to install. Due to their low mass and compact design, ideal choices for linear motors are the LIF, LIP, and LIDA encoders.
