Aerotech's nano Motion Technology series nanopositioning stages provide the extreme accuracy, resolution, repeatability, and in-position stability required to fundamentally change the precision positioning marketplace.

Aerotech Announces the Release of Their New Nano Motion Technology Catalog

Pittsburgh, PA | Posted on March 3rd, 2011

Aerotech, a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance motion control and positioning systems, announces the release of their new Nano Motion Technology catalog which presents complete information on their full line of high-performance, long-travel nanopositioners. These unique nanopositioning stages are for applications requiring nanometer and sub-arc-second accuracies, and are suitable for both laboratory and industrial applications.

The catalog begins with an overview of nanopositioning technical requirements for materials, bearings, magnetics, feedback devices, electronics, motion controllers, advanced software, test and metrology, and calibration. Following the technical discussion of the mechatronic design principle behind the development of nanopositioners, the catalog provides a complete listing of Aerotech's nanopositioning stages with specifications, CADs, ordering information, and more.

Products included in the Nano Motion Technology catalog include single- and dual-axis linear nanopositioners with 1 nm resolution, ±250 nm accuracy, and travels from 25 mm to 160 mm; rotary nanopositioners with 0.01 arc-second resolution, 0.005 arc-second in-position stability, and 360° continuous rotation; as well as nanopositioning goniometers, vertical lift, and "Z" stages. An overview of advanced nanopositioning motion controllers and drives completes the catalog.

Since 1970, Aerotech motion control products have improved our customers' throughput and accuracy and have provided them with a competitive edge, and the new Aerotech nanopositioners line is no different. These nanopositioning stages were developed to provide the extreme accuracy required for cutting-edge R&D in the burgeoning nanotechnology field, while at the same time offering a solution for industrial manufacturing when nanotechnology R&D leads to full-scale production. Aerotech's long travel nanopositioners offer both more versatility in the lab as well as usable travel (up to 160 mm linear travel; unlimited rotation) in industrial applications, all while providing the accuracy that was previously only available with piezo-based stages that offer travels of only microns. With crossed-roller bearings, direct drive, and noncontact encoders, these long-travel nanopositioners also promise a long, low-maintenance service life.
