Alluxa has rapidly grown into a world leader in precision thin films and optical filters by refining our advanced SIRRUS Plasma Deposition process, designing and building our coating equipment, and a dedication to research and development.
A precision gantry stage typically provides overhead motion in 2 or 3 linear degrees of freedom (X-Y and X-Y-Z) and is often used for pick and place applications, 3D printing or laser machining, precision handling, and electronics applications.
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.
Transducers are electro-mechanical devices that convert electrical energy to mechanical energy or vice versa. A well known and widely used transducer is the so-called "voice coil" transducer that is based on electromagnetic principles and finds applications in speakers and sub-woofers.
