Overview

SMP Benefits

More Flexibility

  • 2D and 3D contouring
  • Measurement of spherical, aspheric, and cylindrical shapes (Application example: precision optical component measurement)
  • Scanning or point-to-point motion profiles
  • Available in multiple configurations
  • Generic high-speed electrical interface between the motion and sensor controller
  • Open architecture software to integrate a large variety of sensors such as white light or multi-wavelength interferometers, camera systems, or capacitive probes
  • Easy-to-use, advanced motion algorithms ease motion profile generation

Higher Precision

  • Axis repeatability in the low nanometer range
  • Nanometer-level minimum incremental motion (resolution)
  • Ultra-smooth motion even at very low velocities
  • Reduced processing time
  • Save up to 40% of measurement time compared with conventional Cartesian systems
  • Real-time communication between motion and sensor controller provides synchronization of measurement and position data
  • Fast data access during the measurement and intelligent data management

Minimal Footprint

  • 60% footprint savings compared to Cartesian systems
