Technology Marketing Summary

Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) has created a method and high precision robot arm system for X-ray nanodiffraction with an X-ray nanoprobe for example. The robot arm system includes duo-vertical-stages and a kinematic linkage system. A two-dimensional (2D) vertical plane ultra-precision robot arm supporting an X-ray detector provides positioning and manipulating of the X-ray detector.

Description

A precision robot arm system includes a two-dimensional (2D) vertical plane robot arm with duo-vertical-stages and a kinematic linkage system supporting an X-ray detector for positioning and manipulating of the X-ray detector. The robot arm system includes a first cross-roller bearing structure and a second cross-roller bearing structure carried by the 2D vertical plane robot arm; and a vertical support carrying the 2D vertical plane robot arm. The vertical support includes spaced apart rails respectively engaging the first cross-roller bearing structure and the second cross-roller bearing structure carried by the 2D vertical plane robot arm, so that the 2D vertical plane robot arm is rotatable and slidingly moved along the vertical support.
