Precise Motion Systems

AutoAlign

Highest Resolution Motion Stages

The AutoAlign family is a collection of high precision motion systems. Wherever an exceptional placement or moving precision is required the AutoAlign systems are the motion systems of choice.

Fields of Use

 

Motion-Stage

Available Motion Stages

AutoAlign300

  • 3 axes motion stage, lateral

Scalability

Starting with a 3 axes configuration the AutoAlign systems can easily be scaled up to machines with 16 and more degrees of motion. The most common configuration, however, are the AutoAlign300, the AutoAlign600, and the AutoAlign1200 featuring 3, 6, or 12 automated stages respectively.

 

Versability

A repeatability of 20 nm or 50 nm respectively makes the AutoAlign system the ideal partner for tasks where high precision movements are needed. Together with the long travel range of 100 mm the AutoAlign can also perform pick & place saving additional stages.

 

ProcessControlMaster software

All ficonTEC machines are shipped as turn-key systems. Beside the motion system the packages include the control unit consisting of motion controllers, motion amplifiers and a ready to use programming and control interface. The ProcessControlMaster software features an intuitive line based programming GUI including powerful alignment routines and is completely equipped for full assembly or testing automation. The ProcessControlMaster software is the software which also operates our assembly and testing machines.
