Aerotech's FiberMaxTM represents a significant breakthrough in the high-volume manufacturing and testing of fiberoptic components. The FiberMax is a second-generation precision production positioning system incorporating the most advanced mechanical design and drive control technologies. It is designed to meet the demanding needs of critical fiberoptic alignment in a highly automated, 24/7 production environment with no compromise in speed, accuracy, and resolution.

The FiberMax also employs noncontact direct-drives for all axes producing non-cogging, high-speed, high-resolution, and high-accuracy positioning. Resolutions of 10 nm (X-Z axes) and 2 nm (Y axis) can be achieved. This unique drive technology offers a significant throughput advantage over conventional screw and piezo-drive-based systems.
