About us

SmarAct develops high-performance solutions for handling and positioning in the micro- and nanometer range. The broad product portfolio - from single positioners to complex parallel kinematics, miniaturized robots and easy-to-use control systems - is completed by sophisticated measuring equipment based on powerful laser interferometers. Maintaining the complete production in house allows a high level of customization so that we can always provide you the optimal individual or OEM solution.

Products and services

Positioning Stages
Miniaturization in all fields of application increases the demand and requirements for compact and high-resolution positioning solutions. SmarAct offers piezo-based, electro-magnetic and hybrid stages.

Positioning Systems
Most applications in academia and industry require more than one degree of freedom when it comes to the precise positioning of samples, tools or equipment. SmarAct offers hexapod-like systems (TRIPOD and SMARPOD), opto-mechanics, microrobots (SMARGON) and modular systems.

SmarAct offers a range of metrology solutions to measure displacements and vibrations at the highest accuracy.

SMARPOD - Hexapod-like

The SMARPOD offers the same degrees of freedom as classical hexapod systems while guaranteeing high resolution and repeatability. Compared to serial kinematic systems with six degrees of freedom SMARPODs exhibit a higher stiffness and a higher rigidity. A user friendly software package allows easy integration into your own control environment assuring a very short setup time.
SMARPODs are highly customizable and can be integrated into completely customized setups.

MLS Series - Electromagnetic Direct-Drives

MLS Product Series consists of electromagnetic linear motors that are directed towards industrial applications, lab automation and compact positioning solutions where high speed, force and nanometer precise motion need to be paired with high duty cycles and durability.
The stages are equipped with SmarAct’s contactless linear motors free of wear and open up a field of application where highly dynamic processes require both high speed and nanometer precision simultaneously.

PICOSCALE Interferometer - Measuring Displacements

For high precision displacement measurements, SmarAct offers the PICOSCALE Interferometer, a powerful sensor with pm- resolution. Based on a compact Michelson interferometer, non-invasive displacement measurements with low restrictions on the target reflectivity can be realized very efficiently.
Sensor heads are available for general purpose or optimized for specific environments (e.g. vacuum) and tasks like angular or differential measurements.
