Project Name Development of an ultra-precision position-control linear motor
Year 1990 Director
A team led by Dr. Yong Il KIM from the System Research Department at KIST devoted ten years to linear motor research and succeeded in developing a nano-level ultra-precision linear motor, stage technology, and position and speed control technology. This team also formed JUSTEK, KIST’s very first venture firm in 1999, and manufactured approximately 1,000 motors in 2005, recording over 10 billion won in sales. Armed with the technologies to control an entire system and optimize system features, the team is investigating possible design changes according to an application system. The type of motor developed at KIST enjoys a wide range of applications where linear motion is required along with precision position contro. It can be used in industries such as medicine, aerospace, national defense, and semiconductor manufacturing which use robots, optical communication equipment, precision optical control devices, and precision movement machines. With its high technological capabilities, many more uses will be found for it at home and abroad.
