Positioning systems for automated optical and radiography inspection - AOI & X-Ray

High-precision motion solutions for reliable inspection results

We realize positioning and motion systems for high-precision operating of detectors, X-ray sources or inspection cameras in 2D and 3D. Manufacturing and quality control of e.g. microchips requires nano-scale measuring of solder joints for safe and reliable product quality evaluation.
Our experts develop and design the positioning system exactly fitting to your process requirements. We optimally match design, axis selection, frame materials as well as the drive components measuring system, servo amplifiers and motors to guarantee your inspection application's maximum product quality.
Our customers receive a solution ready for connection, meeting the highest requirements regarding accuracy and repeatability.
Customer advantage: less expenditures, highest quality, fast market entry!
