FiberMaxHP noncontact direct-drive technology is designed to enable high-precision alignment without sacrificing production throughput. It is capable of 2 nm linear and 0.05 µrad rotary minimum incremental motion, with speeds to 400 mm/s, to meet the challenges of aligning next-generation photonics packages. The FiberMaxHP is available with 3 to 6 axes of direct-drive alignment allowing the platform to be specified with the exact number of axes needed for the application. Since many applications require manual adjustment of fixtures and parts for a one-time initial alignment, the FiberMaxHP comes with 1 to 3 axes of manual angular alignment with ±2-deg of motion. These manual adjustment axes mount directly to the direct-drive platform and offer a more economical approach to alignment when adjustment is not frequently required.
