IST combines our skills in mechatronics, simulation and analysis, flexure design, and custom sensor design to develop novel automation systems for manufacturing and other production processes. These systems range in complexity from precision positioning using pneumatic slides, linear motor, rotary spindles, to pick and place mechanisms, and precision polishing systems. We routinely integrate piezoelectric actuators, frameless motors, encoders, steppers, precision optics, lasers, and sensors into advanced automation platforms. These systems have demanding requirements with respect to positioning capability, dynamic performance, settling times (micro to milliseconds), and often require integration into more complex systems. We further understand different engineering scales and adapt systems over these scales to meet key performance requirements in compact footprints.
