Magnetic Levitation Nanopositioning Stage w/6DOF Control Technology Demonstrator

Magnetic Levitation, or MagLev, technology allows frictionless motion with resolution down to the sub-nanometer range as well as the active control of all 6 degrees of freedom, without any mechanical restrictions or connections.

Instead of traditional mechanical bearings, such as crossed-rollers, the moving platform is floating on and guided by magnetic fields that are calculated by sophisticated control algorithms.
