Providing Services to The Research Scientist, and R & D Professionals in Industry
HPD specializes on kinematically optimized designs (greatest precision and stability for least effort or cost) involving precision
linear and rotary motion (way systems, flexures, cone bearings). HPD also has expertise in developing stable mounting systems
(Invar, compensated expansion, composites), and controlled motion systems (servo controlled systems, encoder feedback).
Many HPD designed systems often include temperature control, thermoelectric coolers, and thermal analysis. These systems also require expertise in materials selection for: high/low temperature environments; magnetic sensitivity; low vapor pressure; electrical conductivity/insulation; strength/weight concerns; thermal expansion concerns; mechanical issues (lubricity, wear, stiffness, etc.). HPD also has expertise in incorporating actuators (motors, PZT's, and voice coils) in to evolving designs.
