Motion Control • Nano/Micro Positioning

Micropositioners are designed for positioning applications requiring accurate positioning on a micro scale.

Nanopositioning systems are based on frictionless drive and guiding systems, while micropositioning systems are motor-driven stages that feature travel ranges of a few millimeters up to a few hundred millimeters. Nanopositioning and micropositioning equipment includes: micropositioning stages, integrated nano/micropositioning stages, nanopositioner controllers, actuators, piezoelectric actuators, piezo drivers, linear stages, rotation stages, goniometers, modular actuators, motorized linear stages, miniature motorized stages and motion controllers.
