Precision Positioners for High-Accuracy Motion Control
Frequently Asked Questions
A positioner is a device that is used to precisely position and orient samples or devices in research and industrial applications. Positioners are typically used in microscopy, imaging, and semiconductor manufacturing, as well as in fields such as optics and photonics.
There are various types of positioners available, including manual positioners, motorized positioners, and piezo-driven positioners. Manual positioners are operated by hand, while motorized positioners use motors to drive movement. Piezo-driven positioners use piezoelectric actuators to achieve precise positioning.
Positioners offer several benefits, including high precision and accuracy, smooth and consistent motion, and the ability to position samples or devices in multiple axes. They also allow for remote control, making it easier to operate the positioner from a distance.
When choosing a positioner, you should consider factors such as travel range, load capacity, resolution, speed, and accuracy. You should also consider the compatibility of the positioner with other components in your setup, such as controllers and software.
Positioners can be controlled using a range of methods, including manual control, computer control, and remote control. Many positioners come with dedicated controllers or software that can be used to program and control their movements.
Yes, many positioners can be customized to meet specific application requirements, such as custom travel ranges, mounting options, and load capacities.
