Title: Method and apparatus for the linear positioning and for the position recognition of a substrate on an onserting unit

Abstract: An apparatus for the linear positioning and for the position recognition of a substrate, comprising a linear transport for conveying the substrate, a sensor whose sensor field is set to a freely selectable braking position along the conveying path of a substrate feature of the substrate, and a controller connected to the linear transport and to the sensor for decelerating and stopping the linear transport, so that the substrate feature comes to rest in an onserting position.
