6-Axis Photonics Alignment System Based On Air Bearings: F-716
Source: PI (Physik Instrumente) LP
The F-716 is a high-precision, high performance air bearing motion system with six degrees of freedom ideal for Fast Multi- Channel Photonics Alignment (FMPA) involving fiber arrays, silicon photonics circuits, and wafer level short range metrology applications.
The system features direct drive motor technology in combination with air bearings; the frictionless, non-contact design makes it a perfect solution for 24/7 highly dynamic applications. In combination with high resolution linear encoders, the F-716 system is a great fit for alignment applications.
Lack of mechanical bearings makes the F-716 non-wearing, maintenance free, with virtually unlimited lifetime ideal for cleanroom environments.
