Improved performance at the system level results from improvements in one or all of the subassemblies in the system. Completing the design could mean adding a right-angle gearhead, an incremental encoder or a controller. Improved performance could come from lower-backlash in the gearhead, higher resolution from the encoder, or the ability to control up to six motion axes. Here are examples in each of these areas.
