If you’ve not previously used a nanopositioning system, or had cause to specify one for a while, then it’s worth taking time to consider some of the key factors that will ensure success:

  1. Construction of nanopositioning devices
  2. The motion profile
  3. Frequency response
  4. Settling and rise time
  5. Digital control
  6. Avoid the temptation to over-specify

These factors apply to all applications in precision industrial manufacturing, science and research, photonics and satellite instrumentation. Our latest article on Prior.com discusses each of these factors in detail. You can read it here:
