Aerotech manufactures a wide variety of linear motor and ball screw linear stages in single- and multi-axis configurations. This image shows a few of our PRO LM series linear motor stages.
Our rotary stage selection includes direct-drive stages that use our own brushless rotary servomotors, as well as worm-gear-driven models. Rotary tables are available with many different size apertures, table diameters, and mounting options.
Aerotech has over 40 years of motion control and positioning system experience in the manufacture of custom motion subsystems tailor-made for our customers' applications.
Aerotech's advanced motion controls, drives and servomotors allow us to provide a complete motion system and provide you with a single source for all of your motion needs.
Aerotech's vast application experience, unmatched product scope, and extensive engineering capabilities make us the partner of choice for vacuum-compatible, cleanroom, and custom motion systems.

Technically superior motion control components

Our philosophy of building superior motion control systems starts with designing and manufacturing technically superior components. Other suppliers integrate general-purpose components into their motion systems and claim to sell you a ‘superior’ system. An Aerotech system begins with Aerotech motion components that are already best in class and specifically designed and optimized for the highest performance and lowest cost of ownership available.

From technically superior components to high-performance sub-assemblies to best-in-class highly integrated motion subsystems, Aerotech can accommodate the requirements of your application and outperform competitive solutions. The performance of our products is complemented by the depth and breadth of our product line, providing our customers with a ‘one stop’ supplier for a quick and efficient solution for your application.

Motion controls, drives and motors

From our award-winning Automation 3200 32-axis motion, vision, PLC, robotics, and I/O network, to our Soloist series single axis and Ensemble series multi-axis standalone motion controllers, Aerotech provides a controller solution to fit almost any need. Aerotech complements our controllers with our large selection of high-performance brushless linear and rotary servomotors, and PWM and linear drives.

Linear and rotary stages, nanopositioners, and gantries

Aerotech positioning stages range from economical ball-screw and gear-driven linear and rotary stages to the highest performance direct-drive linear and rotary stages available, linear-motor-based Cartesian gantry systems, single and multi-axis air-bearing systems, and our complete range of ANT series long travel nanopositioners.

Custom, vacuum and cleanroom-ready motion systems

If you don’t find a standard product suitable for your application, our expertise and ability to provide custom motion components and systems is unmatched. Our custom manufacturing ability is further augmented by our long history of providing systems for vacuum and cleanroom operation.

Engineering and service support for motion control components and systems

From concept to final certification, Aerotech’s engineers and technical staff apply their expertise and skills, along with Aerotech’s proven products and motion control and positioning technologies, to ensure the success of our custom engineered systems. Our advanced analytical and diagnostic capabilities allow us to provide a very high level of engineering and service support, providing an extra level of value-added services for our customers.
