Motion System for KB Mirror
A system was designed for Argonne National Laboratory that provides 5 degrees of motion for their KB Mirror. The mirror chamber has 50 mm of vertical (z-axis) travel and 75 mm horizontal (x-axis) travel with a resolution of 1 µm. Through the use of stacked precision slides, precision jacks, and free slides the chamber can also be rotated around the x-axis, y-axis, and z-axis to allow for leveling and alignment of the chamber. The motion system sits on a granite base providing stability and vibration dampening. The granite is leveled precisely with lockable leveling feet and bolted to an aluminum plate grouted to the floor.
