Key Technology Considerations for Dynamic Metrology Applications
Throughout the world, various types of metrology
applications share a common need for increased precision. Metrology is the
scientific study of measurement. Metrology applications take some type of
measurement to collect certain data. Markets such as life science,
semiconductor, and electronics manufacturing rely on metrology instrumentation
to ensure their process is completed correctly. The need for precision is
further underscored when you realize the samples/products can be extremely
small (i.e., human cell) as well as highly sensitive (i.e., touch-screen
electronics). Having high-precision motion technology is key to ensure the
application will be completed successfully.
This blog post will cover the basics of metrology
applications, but if you are interested in learning more, Parker has published
a detailed white paper on the topic, which we encourage you to download here.
