10 Years of Fruitful Cooperation Between Nanopositioning Specialists
(Nanowerk News) nPoint and Noliac Motion have cooperated for almost 10 years within the field of nanopositioning and motion control. nPoint specializes in piezo actuator driven flexure stages available in one, two or three axes of motion. Noliac Motion has provided nPoint with high quality actuators, always in a timely manner.
Scanning ranges up to 400 µm
nPoint’s stages employ closed-loop capacitive feedback to ensure outstanding linearity and position accuracy. With scanning ranges from 25 to 400 µm, nPoint stages can fit a wide range of positioning and motion control requirements.
The stages have low out-of-plane motion and nanometer repeatability. In addition to a wide range of standard products, nPoint has the
design capabilities to develop custom stages for researchers and OEMs.
Highest quality piezo actuators
VP of Product Development Katerina Moloni, PhD, from nPoint explains: "We have a good cooperation with Noliac Motion on piezo actuators. Our innovative design of stages and electronics depends on high quality actuators. We are able to provide users with the highest level of performance available in the marketplace because we make use of the highest performance materials."
Katerina continues: "We pride ourselves in the timely delivery and integration of our products into our OEM customers' products. We depend on consistent quality and innovative piezo solutions. Noliac Motion has always been able to deliver this in a timely manner."
