Dover Motion Announces Low-cost, High-performance 5 mm Travel Nanopositioning DOF-5 Objective Focusing Stage with Built-in Controller

Patent-pending technology allows it to overcome travel limitations inherent in traditional piezoelectric actuators, expanding the range from 400 microns to >5 mm. Stiffer bearing yields improved image stability over flexure bearing solutions, results in less vibration for ease and speed of focusing. Fully enclosed, embedded encoder and motion controller assembly makes it smaller with fewer...
