Since 1970, Aerotech has designed and manufactured the highest performance motion control and positioning systems for our customers in industry, government, science and research institutions around the world.
Aerotech's commitment to consistently advancing our product and value-added service capabilities is summed up in our motto, "Dedicated to the Science of Motion". Always guiding our development efforts is our commitment to providing our customers with products and services that provide:
- The lowest cost of ownership
- Highest throughput
- Highest accuracy
- Best return on investment
Our philosophy of building superior motion control systems starts with designing and manufacturing technical superior components. An Aerotech system begins with Aerotech motion components that are already best in class and specifically designed and optimized for the highest performance.
Aerotech piezo nanopositioning stages for high precision laboratory and industrial applications: New Aerotech QNP-L stages available in travel ranges from 100 µm to 600 µm.
QNP-L piezo nanopositioning stages offer sub-nanometer-level performance in compact, high-stiffness packages.
A series of piezo nanopositioning stages that offer sub-nanometer-level performance in compact, high-stiffness packages has been introduced by Aerotech (www.aerotech.com). The new QNP-L stages are offered in travel ranges from 100 µm to 600 µm. Their precision, frictionless flexure guidance systems assure long device life.
Aerotech piezo nanopositioning stages for high precision laboratory and industrial applications: New Aerotech QNP-L stages available in travel ranges from 100 µm to 500 µm.
Economical and compact, the stages are designed for almost any laboratory or industrial application requiring precision linear motion. They provide excellent geometric performance (straightness and angular errors) while minimizing overall package size.
Applications include: Industrial and Academic Laboratories • Nanometrology • Microscopy • Semiconductors • Microelectronics • Test & Inspection • Optics • Photonics • Data Storage • Precision Mechanics • Metals • Life Sciences • Medical Devices
The stages are offered with or without closed-loop feedback. Closed-loop models use a capacitive sensor design that yields sub-nanometer positioning resolution and high-positioning accuracy. The sensors directly measure the output of the positioning carriage. This enables superior linearity and positioning repeatability when compared to indirect feedback metrology techniques such as strain-gage feedback.
Open-loop models, without feedback, provide a cost-effective option for applications where absolute positioning accuracy and repeatability are not required. Vacuum-prepared versions are also available. The QNP-series includes XY and Z stages in which common travels mount together with adapter plates.
