Moliner Brotons, A. (author)
In high-precision complex mechatronic devices, specifications are mostly affected by the contribution of several disciplines. Thus, in order to facilitate the fulfilment of the specifications, it is crucial to have a well-defined requirement for each sub-system during the entire design process. Model based system engineering (MBSE) is a...

A wavelength modulated interferometer is presented, based on a telecom laser source. A solution for the target distance dependency of wavelength modulated interferometers is presented. With the introduction of a delay line, the modulation depth variation is reduced. A method and a sensor head for the reduction of the thermal dependency of this...

This study focuses on investigating an alternative validation method to validate the compressor side of turbochargers. Nowadays, the performance of turbochargers is tested using hot gas stands. These hot gas stands are expensive. The application of an externally coupled e-motor to the turbocharger eliminates the need for a hot gas burner -...

The 3D-digitisation of precious cultural heritage artifacts is highly important for historical preservation purposes. Doing so can help mitigate against events such as tourism damage, natural disasters, and war. It also enables access to three-dimensional data for researchers of all disciplines all around the globe to study these artifacts at...

In orthopaedic and dental surgery, bone grafts are used by surgeons as substitutes for the patient’s own bone. A bone graft provides support to the skeletal structure and stimulates the ingrowth of new bone. There is a growing demand for bone grafts due to an increasing world population and an ageing demographic. Tissue banks produce bone grafts...

Vibration energy harvesters are especially interesting to use in an environment where there is one dominant vibration frequency present because then the harvesters can be designed to resonate at that specific frequency. To spread out the power yield over more frequencies a multi-modal harvester can be used which can resonate at multiple...

The ever increasing demand for better and cheaper electronic devices, sensors, optical components, etc. fuels innovation in nanometer precision positioning machines. However, the overall architecture of these machines has not changed much over the past years. A huge improvement in the architecture is currently impossible due to a crucial element...

Cryogenic electron tomography (cryo-ET) is currently the golden standard for imaging cellular tissue at nanometer resolution. The current workflow from cultured cells to final image is however very time-consuming, labor-intensive, expensive, and has a low yield. Moreover, many of the steps in this workflow require practice. Even after practice,...

Nowadays, low-duty CNC machines use the conventional belt-driven system, which works well for relatively small machines. However this design brings several complications the engineer has to account for: creep; backlash; complex assembly and more importantly the limited stiffness of the belt. This limited stiffness results in belt stretch and...

Vibration energy harvesting can become a durable source of energy for wireless<br/>sensors or other low power applications like pacemakers. Huge savings in ecological footprint, production and maintenance costs can be achieved by replacing batteries for vibration energy harvesters. Most of the time, newly developed energy harvesters are tested...

Bone drilling is a crucial part of orthopaedic surgery. Internal fixation is a ommon orthopaedic procedure that requires drilling to improve healing of bone fractures. Tight spaces around hard to reach bone fractures impede the surgeon during the procedure. As a result there is an increased risk of complications such as thermonecrosis, overshoot...

As technology is advancing, the need for precision stages is increasing. These stages are being used with (electron) microscopes for scientific research and industrial applications. They can be operated manually or by actuators, where the motorized stages are quite expensive in general and the cost increase significantly if better performance is...

Flex-on-substrate assembly is an increasingly popular electronics assembly type that is based on thermocompression bonding: a combination of high temperature and pressure. Currently, up to two-thirds of the cycle time is spent on heating and cooling. To meet the growing demand for flex-on-substrate production in the future, the heating and...

Stick-slip friction is the resulting effect of the transition between the dynamic and static friction coefficient. This effect determines the minimal sustained speed and minimal incremental motion of a movement system, limiting the performance in precise positioning systems. Available bearing types without stick-slip suffer from complexity, high...

This report presents a new filter wheel design for use in space-based optical systems. The design integrates a hybrid linear stepper motor into the wheel's rim to generate rotation, leading to a Rotating Hybrid Linear Stepper Motor (RHLSM). Unpowered this motor generates a holding force that can keep the wheel in position during system...

The application of actively controlled micrometer precision positioning stages in products that are accessible to start-ups, individual consumers or third world countries is currently limited by their price and size. To solve this problem, the use of low-cost and compact components in stages is investigated. Earlier research done in the MSD...

To push the performance of the next generation Ultimaker 3D printers further, a new positioning system is required to improve the printing speed, print accuracy and print repeatability. The expectation is that a linear motor positioning system will perform significantly better than a conventional belt driven system. For this reason, the aim of...
