Thermal effects are one of the main error sources in precision equipment. The last decades huge improvements have been reached by understanding and controlling these thermal effects and a significant amount of knowledge has been gained. The tutorial will present the state of the art status about thermal design methodology and modeling.
Theo A. M. Ruijl of MI Partners is recognized for contributions to ultra-precision machine design. His work addresses numerous areas including thermal effects, high-precision metrology systems, control systems, damping techniques and system architecture in an industrial setting.
