Floating steel encoder scales for SMT

Position encoders with linear scales have wide-ranging applications in front-end and back-end semiconductor manufacturing processes. This application note discusses surface mount technology (SMT) applications and presents an example of where linear steel scale (installed to be thermally independent of its mounting substrate) may be preferable to the currently widely used, but expensive, near-zero thermal expansion scales.



It takes a maximum of 60 seconds until a conventional 3-jaw chuck with SCHUNK RAPIDO clamping inserts is retooled. For granting such a speedy jaw change, the RAPIDO clamping inserts must be put onto the base or intermediate jaws and moved backwards until they snap in. The exchange can be done manually or in case of lathe chucks with integrated base jaws, it can be done fully automatic with a robot.
