Aerotech - Dedicated to the science of motion

Since 1970, Aerotech has designed and manufactured the highest-performance motion controls, positioning stages and positioning systems for our customers in industry, government, science, and research institutions around the world. Aerotech's precision motion control products provide the critical performance for today's demanding applications in markets including:

  • medical device and life sciences
  • semiconductor and flat panel
  • photonics
  • automotive
  • data storage
  • laser processing
  • military/aerospace
  • electronic manufacturing and test
  • research and development
  • nanotechnology
  • measurement and inspection
  • others requiring high precision, high throughput motion solutions.

Aerotech's commitment to consistently advancing our product and value-added service capabilities is summed up in our motto, "Dedicated to the Science of Motion." Always guiding our development efforts is our commitment to providing our customers with products and services that provide the lowest cost of ownership, highest throughput, highest accuracy and best return on investment. The results of this commitment can be seen in the large number and variety of Aerotech motion systems and components in use around the world. We are gratified that our efforts have been recognised by our peers and colleagues in the industry through the many awards we have received.

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 optimised 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.

An unmatched line of products

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. From our award-winning Automation 3200 32-axis motion, vision, robotics and I/O platform, to our Soloist series single axis and Ensemble series multi-axis stand-alone motion controllers, Aerotech provides a controller solution to fit almost any need. Aerotech manufactures a large selection of high-performance brushless linear and rotary motors, and PWM and linear drives. 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. Our linear-motor-based Cartesian gantry systems, single and multi-axis air-bearing systems, and complete range of nanopositioning direct-drive and piezo stages enable us to offer a motion solution for almost any application.

The finest custom motion components and 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 in the industry. Our custom manufacturing ability is further augmented by our long history of providing systems for vacuum and cleanroom operation.

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, offering an extra level of value-added services for our customers.
