|The entire ELG-2000 assembly is therefore capable of controlling six axes in the
Millennium VG scanner: two axes for the movable table, and two axes for each collimator. The assembly can be further enhanced
in the future to incorporate more drive units to provide added multi-axis motion control.
ELGEMS estimates that incorporation of the ELG-2000 assembly into the
Millennium VG scanners has provided savings of 10% in production costs, stemming from reduced assembly time and lower component
prices. The miniature system, one-fifth in size of the drive previously used, can be quickly and easily mounted And just
as important: a major side benefit of the ELG-2000 assembly has been a significant enhancement in system performance and reliability.
