Aerotech Inc.'s FiberMax series photonics fiber-alignment system is available with up to six axes of precise motion. Its patented noncontact direct-drive technology produces up to 300-pm linear resolution and 0.027-arcsec rotary resolution. Designed for use in highly auto-mated and continuously operating production environments, the system has 32-MHz electronic circuitry that enables fast positioning, even at 10-nm closed-loop resolution. It can be supplied in a number of configurations and with optional accessories. When configured with the Zero Z option, the compact size and the design of FiberMax permit positioning the optical axis to virtually any height above the tabletop, providing easy access to components.
