1. High-quality Linear stage Z-axis

Closed-loop DC servo motor with noncontact optical encoders which can measure the position directly at the platform with the greatest accuracy.
Nonlinearity, mechanical play or elastic deformation have no influence on the measurement. This linear stage is designed and assembled carefully for the highest position stability, although the power is switched off.

2. XYZ Flexure Guided Nanopositioning System

High guiding accuracy due to zero-play flexure guide is free of maintenance and friction, plus outst anding lifetime over than 100 billion cycles without a single failure is proven thanks to the patented PICMA® piezo actuators. Its stiffness allows high load capacity and It is insensitive to shock and vibration.
All degrees of freedom are measured and can be actively compensated to the correct position in XYZ in real-time. High tracking accuracy is achieved in the nanometer range even in dynamic operation.

3. Linear Variable Differential Transformer

Inductive axial probe which has measuring range at+/-2 mm under a resolution at 0.01 um provides a reliable measuring result and able to record/ present data via software.

4. Flat Rotation Stage with Air Bearing

The directly driven low-profile rotation stage is designed for the highest precision. Eccentricity and flatness is below 100 nm. Absolute encoders supply explicit position information that enables immediate determination of the position. This means that referencing is not required during switch-on, which increases efficiency and safety during operation.

5. Granite base

High straightness and levelness granite base for Metrology laboratory to minimize uncertainty and error of measurement. Well grinding and measuring before the equipment are mounted.
