The language used by suppliers of technology solutions aimed at precision engineering applications is vague and, in some instances, confusing. The use of traditional language and words such as precision and resolution without any degree of qualification are just meaningless. This article analyzes the concept of precision. It explores new language for defining submicron- and nanometer-level accuracy for motion control and details why new standards are required to indicate the real levels of precision that different motion control solutions can achieve.
