FiberMaxHP is a second-generation 3-6 axis photonics alignment platform built on Aerotech's ANT nanopositioning product line
Aerotech’s new Ensemble QLe panel-mount nanopositioning piezo drive is designed for use with the Ensemble family of drives and controllers
Aerotech has introduced a Ball-Screw Stage with Linear Encoder, a compact, high-performance linear positioning stage featuring smooth travel combined with high accuracy, repeatability and positioning resolution capability to 25nm.
Applications include optics positioning, z-axis positioning of sensors in surface metrology, and in general purpose high-precision alignment. Quick multi-axis configurations are made easily with other MPS linear and rotary stages using the adapter brackets and mounting compatibility inherent in the entire MPS stage family.
