Novel programmable ceramic shims allow the alignment of components in precision machine tools, laser processing equipment, and optical apparatus in locations that are hard to access. These innovative active shims are designed as “set and forget” components with the ability for the user to change their displacement with a remote programming tool, when necessary.

Linear Motors for Machine Builders: Design engineers in the precision automation market often put different things at the top of their requirement lists than their colleagues in the instrumentation sector. The article outlines new options for the precision motion engineer’s toolbox.
