“We have for many years been appreciative of our cooperation with IMMS. The results from this project will be the basis of product design to the specification of future AeroLas customers. IMMS will likewise be an important partner for us in future developments because of its outstanding expertise in the field of magnetic drives.“

„At AeroLas, we have been pursuing a new R&D idea in the field of aerostatic guides in a joint project with IMMS and Ilmenau TU. The result of this highly successful cooperation has been a compact vertical drive element with integrated magnetic vertical actuator and reliance on compressed air, not electricity, for the weight compensation. This active guiding element means that the position in the vertical can be controlled with nanometre-precision while the load is being carried with virtually none of the power loss which might occasion problems due to warming.

Elements like this are of particular interest for drive systems requiring perfect positioning and measurement on the nanometre scale, features that are necessary in display manufacture or optical measurement of reticles and wafers.

We have for many years been appreciative of our cooperation with IMMS, their focused attitude to the work and their professionalism. The results from this project will be the basis of product design to the specification of future AeroLas customers. IMMS will likewise be an important partner for us in future developments because of its outstanding expertise in the field of magnetic drives.“
