Let There be Light
At Aerotech, our passion has always been to help scientists, engineers and designers to reach their goals in cutting-edge beamline research, improving productivity or developing a new technology. Aerotech’s industry-leading technology helps enable breakthroughs in fields like genome sequencing, laser processing, diffraction, tomography and crystallography. We do this by making the most advanced and precise motion control and positioning systems in the world and maintaining the highest possible degree of quality control and product performance. No one else understands the intricacies of electromechanical systems the way we do.
The following are examples of Aerotech's electromechanical systems used in beamline research:
|Beamline Sample Positioning for Crystallography|
|Beamline Sample Positioning for Tomography|
|Detector Positioning for Tomography and Laminography|
|Vacuum-Compatible Motion Systems|
Every Step of the Way
From vacuum-compatible motors and stages, to basic goniometers to fully integrated electromechanical systems, Aerotech's engineering staff has the experience and expertise to design, build and test a system to your exact requirements. From concept design to final sphere of confusion measurements, a dedicated project engineer will work step-by-step to fulfill your requirements. Sophisticated multi-axis systems are completely customized to suit user needs and specifications. Most systems incorporate linear, rotary, vertical and goniometric motion for vacuum or air environments. These are all integrated with a granite base and welded steel substructure. Precision metrology operations like alignment, calibration and sphere of confusion measurements are carried out on the complete, assembled system.
Multi-Axis Motion Requires Control
Multi-axis motion is the foundation for a high-end system, and such a system will include advanced controls like PSO (Position Synchronized Output) and our Dynamic Controls Toolbox. Aerotech's graphical software suite is designed for ease of use, increased performance and reduced setup time. The Ensemble motion controller has been used in protein crystallography, diffraction and a variety of test, inspection and positioning applications, and includes EPICS and TANGO drivers for easy integration and programmability. Setup wizards, detailed help files and manuals make everything faster and easier, so you can spend less time doing setup and more time getting real data from your experiments.
