Micro motion innovation

Here are a few of the innovations enabling our M3 micro-mechatronic motion systems including our linear microstages, rotary microstages and focus modules.

UTAF micro motor technology

The UTAF™ ultra-thin actuator family integrates all motor functions into a single piezoelectric ceramic beam only 4.5 X 0.82 X 0.7 mm.
