A positioning system manufactured by Luminos Industries Ltd. uses patented in-line actuators to provide ease of access. The Luminos 16000 is based on proprietary and patented Ratio Drive on the X- and Y-axes. The standard micrometer produces backlash of only 20 nm and single-sided resolution of 1 nm. The roll, yaw and pitch axes transform linear motion from the actuator into precise rotational movements at the output. The system is vibration- and temperature-insensitive, and internal damping eliminates many of the resonance effects associated with flexure stages. It is constructed of lightweight aluminum.
