Abstract

A novel motion system is presented that provides completely contactless operation from the fixed world. It consists of a contactless planar actuator with 6-DOF and long-stroke movement in the x-y plane, with a 2-DOF manipulator on top of the floating platform. The contactless energy transfer (100W continuous) to the moving platform for operating manipulator is integrated into the magnetic suspension. The manipulator is controlled by a controller on the fixed world with a low latency wireless link based on a custom protocol (
