Multi-Axis Stages: Why Custom Aligned, Tuned, Error-Corrected XYZ Assemblies Are Better

Multi-axis precision motion at the micron or sub-micron level is required in many industrial automation processes as well as in test and metrology applications related to optics, photonics, biotechnology, semiconductor and electronics manufacturing to name a few.  

The most common multi-axis motion systems for precision automation consist of 3-axis, motorized linear stages in an XYZ configuration, driven by a closed-loop motion controller with ability to synchronize multi-axis motion with peripheral equipment, such as lasers, cameras, power meters, etc.

DIY vs Professionally Assembled and Calibrated XY and 3-Axis Stage Solutions

Users of such motion systems often ask the question – should I just get the individual components and bolt them together myself, or rather specify a complete XYZ system, mounted, aligned, and tested by a specialist?

As everything in life, the answer depends on the expectations, the performance requirements, and the budget.
