Aerotech - Nanometer Precision AlignmentAerotech’s FiberMax®HP represents a significant breakthrough in the high-volume manufacturing and testing of photonics components, reflecting more than 40 years of experience in designing advanced positioning systems for OEMs and end-users in the high-technology industries. A highly repeatable, precise, and industrial-grade positioning system is the foundation for high-volume manufacturing and testing of photonics components. FiberMaxHP’s highly reliable, unique drive and control technologies ensure many years of maintenance-free service in a high throughput, 24/7 manufacturing environment.

Ultra-Precision Direct-Drive

As alignment tolerances become smaller with new silicon photonics devices, the requirement for high-speed and high-accuracy alignment is essential. FiberMaxHP noncontact direct-drive technology enables high-precision alignment without sacrificing production throughput. Capable of minimum incremental motion down to 2 nm coupled with speeds to 400 mm/s, the FiberMaxHP meets the challenges of aligning next-generation photonics packages. The direct-drive technology employed in FiberMaxHP offers a significant precision and throughput advantage over other alignment platforms.

Powerful Kinematics and Scanning Routines

Aerotech’s controllers work with a variety of smart cameras and machine vision systems to help facilitate first light. Our power servo scanning algorithms can be called to optimize power coupled through the devices. Standard scanning routines include fast align, hill climb, spiral, and raster searches in up to six axes of motion.

Our advanced kinematics enable a virtual pivot point where rotation can occur at any user-defined point in space rather than the physical rotation point of the FiberMaxHP axes. This assists the speed and accuracy of active alignment. We have an extensive range of software and hardware options to suit your specific needs.
