The basis of the fiber alignment system is a very stiff setup with an H-811 hexapod and an P-616 NanoCube® nanopositioner. The parallel-kinematic design for motion in six degrees of freedom ensures high system stiffness. The motorized drives make long travel ranges possible and at the same time, the NanoCube® nanopositioner allows fast scanning motion and dynamic compensation of drift effects. Flexure guides and all-ceramic PICMA® actuators guarantee a long lifetime. Because all drives are equipped with position sensors, the system works precisely and reliably with high repeatability.
