Our customised products continuously deliver
the most economical, reliable
and high-performance solutions

First of all, AeroLas collaboratively defines a requirements specification with the customer. AeroLas’ engineers and physicists then use this to develop a concept highlighting how an air-guided solution can be successfully implemented. AeroLas’ high-performance service portfolio includes all steps from development through to production. Over the years, AeroLas has become renowned for its expertise in developing customised product series. Research and development are at the heart of our company.

Fundamental research and development drive technological leadership and promote new innovations.

Static and dynamic properties of air-bearings are crucial in mechanics. Without a doubt, AeroLas’ in-house tools offer unique possibilities on a global scale. They can be used for any type of air-bearing. For example, it is possible to calculate static and dynamic properties (with damping and natural frequency) whilst precisely simulating the load bearing capacity and stiffness against tilt and air consumption, depending on the load case (force / moment), even for spindles at the highest rotary speeds, or high-speed / high-precision drives.

In the field of drive technologies we focus on the development of efficient control algorithms and a precise measurement and estimation of the current state. To be able to tap into the outstanding performance potential of air-guided direct drives, it is important to match mechanics and control. Precisely measuring the current state plays a key role in achieving high quality position-control.

For example, modern signal processing concepts like oversampling and observers are used. MATLAB/SIMULINK is available as a simulation tool, which is used to examine all control and measurement methods before they are implemented on our own high-performance electronic hardware with DSP and FPGA. With our high- performance power stage, we aim to provide a high-quality interface to transmit the control precision with minimal loss to the motor. Together with dynamic mechanics models, we can create simulations of an entire drive. Based on the results, we can adjust the control structure to the specific application.

Diverse customer needs in different industries continuously challenge us to broaden our fundamental expertise.
