I'm wondering what the technical name is for this kind of stepper-motorized arrangement (a positioning system? an XY table?)?
What is it typically used for?
It appears to have two steppers as opposed to generic DC motors, so it's presumably for precision work, and I'm trying to see if it would be appropriate for my (experimental biology-related) application.
The unstable kind of two-axis arrangement I suppose would make it too wobbly for something like CNC-machining, but perhaps might work well for scientific experiments.
