In experimentally investigating the effect of servo valve dynamics on control of a pneumatic servo table with an air bearing, we propose control using a PDD2 and a feedforward controller, then test step and trajectory tracking response with natural servo valve frequencies. We confirmed that pneumatic servo performance is affected by servo valve dynamics. We found that tracking error fell below +- 0.5 mm when the servo valve has a natural frequency of 300 Hz.
