Miniaturized XYZ manipulator for demanding applications

The MP53 manipulator is a miniaturized 3-axis system for X, Y and Z motion in very limited installation space. Travel ranges of 10 mm are realized. The manipulator is equipped with piezo motors and can thus realize positioning increments of a few nanometers for high-precision applications in high vacuum and ultra-high vacuum.


Application areas

Precision positioning on smallest installation space for laboratory applications, microscopy and semiconductor technology, research in ultra-high vacuum and under extreme ultraviolet radiation, sample preparation, sample scan, sample handling, camera adjustment, sensor adjustment, material research, material analysis, beamline, accelerator, synchrotron, miniaturization
