Standard Stages take on challenging performance requirements

Motion control applications continue to challenge manufacturers to improve performance, lower costs and reduce delivery times. To meet the increasing demands of precision motion control requirements, leveraging standard “building blocks” can provide an optimal solution in a competitive environment.

While manufactures prefer to avoid the “commodity” label, applications in semiconductor inspection, medical diagnostics and analytical instrumentation can benefit from a diverse offering of standard stages, configurable into unique solutions. Consider a family of standard stages that are offered for normal atmosphere and vacuum environments, provide variation in motor speed/force, and can be configured with position resolution to 10nm. And, in addition to performance, consider that these precision stages provide linear, rotary, Z-wedge vertical, and goniometric tilt axes.

Product Focus

Nanomotion’s FB Series of stages, for vacuum and non-vacuum applications are provided with a range of travels, stages sizes, positioning resolutions, allowing for high performance positioning systems based on standard building blocks.
