nanopositioning made simple
attocube’s nanopositioner division focuses on the design, engineering, and manufacturing of piezoelectric motor driven positioners and integrated nanopositioning solutions for applications with the highest requirements on resolution, repeatability and stability. Our diverse portfolio of nanopositioners provides proven motion over centimeter ranges for a range of extreme environments such as ultra high vacuum, cryogenic temperatures, and high magnetic fields with nanometer precision.
The portfolio includes linear, rotary, and goniometric positioners and scanners – many of them with integrated position sensors for closed loop operation. Thanks to the modular design, individual nanopositioners (linear drives, rotators and goniometers) can be stacked to form multi-stage combinations with up to six axes. Alternatively integrated nanopositioning solutions tailored to the customer's needs can be developed by our highly skilled and experienced engineers.
