Photonics Alignment Platform
Photonics Alignment Platform

FiberMaxHP is a second-generation 3-6 axis photonics alignment platform built on Aerotech’s proven ANT nanopositioning product line. It is designed for critical photonics alignment in a highly automated, 24/7 production environment with no compromise in speed, accuracy, and resolution. This highly reliable, unique drive and control technology ensures many years of maintenance-free service in a high throughput, 24/7 manufacturing environment.

Ultra-Precision Direct-Drive 

FiberMaxHP noncontact direct-drive technology enables high-precision alignment without sacrificing production throughput. It is capable of 2 nm linear and 0.05 µrad rotary minimum incremental motion, with speeds to 400 mm/s, to meet the challenges of aligning next-generation photonics packages. The direct-drive technology employed in FiberMaxHP offers a significant precision and throughput advantage over other alignment platforms.

Powerful Kinematics and Scanning Routines

Aerotech’s controllers work with a variety of smart cameras and machine vision systems to help facilitate first light. Our power servo scanning algorithms can be called to optimize power coupled through the devices. Standard scanning routines include fast align, hill climb, spiral, and raster searches in up to six axes of motion.
Our advanced kinematics enable a virtual pivot point where rotation can occur at any user-defined point in space rather than the physical rotation point of the FiberMaxHP axes. This assists the speed and accuracy of active alignment. We have an extensive array of software and hardware options to suit your specific needs.

Flexible System Configuration

The FiberMaxHP is available with 3-6 axes of direct-drive alignment allowing the platform to be specified with the exact number of axes needed for the application. Since many applications require manual adjustment of fixtures and parts for a one-time initial alignment, the FiberMaxHP comes with 1-3 axes of manual angular alignment with ±2° of motion. These manual adjustment axes mount directly to the direct-drive platform and offer a more economical approach to alignment when adjustment is not frequently required.
Aerotech has many years of experience providing solutions to the photonics industry. We realize that your application may be unique and require customization. The FiberMaxHP is a modular design and can be easily customized with special arrangement of axes, fixturing, and mounting patterns to meet the needs of your specific application.
