Geen nauwkeurige machine zonder goede thermische huishouding

2 November 2018

Met een bladveer kun je een systeem niet alleen statisch bepaald ophangen, het is ook een prima thermische isolator. Voor lang niet alle ingenieurs is zo’n oplossing gesneden koek. Lees meer in het artikel in Mechatronica&Machinebouw:

MI-Partners is active in the development of Synchrotron instrumentation, like Monochromators, KB-mirrors and sample manipulators.

MI-Partners is used to develop high-end (eg. nanometer stability) stages and manipulators in challenging environments ( UHV, X-ray, Cryo-cooling) based on technology available within MI-Partners, such as piezo or floating stages with accurate feedback loops. For these manipulators, not only the dynamic performance is important, but the design of the cooling and sample handling plays an important role as well. MI-Partners can help you develop your next generation state of the art manipulator.

As a reference project MI-Partners has developed together with the Brazilian Synchrotron Sirius / LNLS a new very stable DC Monochromator. (See REF)

For future development, MI-Partners proposes a very accurate rotation stage with a Sphere of confusion less than 5 nm based on floating stage technology and feedback systems (See Ref). Please contact us (R.Schneider@MI-Partners.nl) when you are interested.

FLIR infrared camera

19 March 2018

MI-Partners has added a thermal camera to its measurement equipment! With the FLIR infrared camera, accurate temperature measurements can be done for verification and troubleshooting purposes. Hot spots, temperature gradients and cooling performance are a few examples of capabilities. The camera is handheld, so even hard to reach components are easily diagnosed. Some examples are shown in the images below. Curious about possibilities for your application? Come discuss over a nice warm cup of coffee.


Component temperatures. Hot spots can be located instantly, without disturbing operation of equipment.
