See what our customers are saying:

“I have been working with Tom Radigan, president of Advanced Motion Concepts, for the last 2+ years. He was the sole mechanical system architect and design engineer on a magneto-optic full disk mapping metrology system, called Disk Mapper H7, and a wafer mapping system for 300 mm MRAM wafers, called Polar Kerr for MRAM. Both of these systems were designed from the bottom up by Advanced Motion Concepts. After the completion of these systems and successful delivery and installation to our first Fortune 500 data storage customers, a number of additional measurement options were requested. Tom designed these in a way that they were seamlessly integrated into the system and now provide valuable additional metrology capabilities.  Tom is undoubtedly the most creative mechanical engineer I have worked with in my 17 years of magnetic metrology system design career. He is always capable of producing elegant, yet efficient and manufacturable solutions to complex mechanical problems. In addition to being an extremely talented mechanical system architect, he also brings to the table a wealth of system design experience, including motion, optics, vibration isolation, air bearing design and the use of exotic materials needed for special applications.  However, in my opinion, his most remarkable trait is the capability of producing “innovation on a timeline and within budget”. His easy going personality, attention to detail, communication skills and ability to manufacture prototype parts make Advanced Motion Concepts a pleasure to work with, in even the most pressure packed situations.” – F.

“Tom Radigan is a first rate professional. We found him by a fortunate stroke of luck in an Internet search for a skill set we needed for a new multi-axis x-ray motion platform. The schedule was impossible: 4 months to a critical show. Based on the first month of work with Tom I committed to the company president a completed, show-ready system within three months later. Great composure under pressure, excellent communicator, crystal clear documentation, Intellectual command of his field yet devoid of arrogance. He is a pleasure to work with. We will be using his services as long as he remains available.”– S. K.
