Design service announcement:
Dynamic Structures and Materials, LLC (DSM) offers custom design services for single- and multi-axis positioning hardware used in optomechanical assemblies. DSM’s expertise in flexure-guided mechanisms for nanopositioning motion stages establishes a foundation for the design of positioning hardware in either manually adjustable or motorized forms. The use of solid-stage flexures ensures smooth, continuous motion in either linear or rotary applications that can carry large loads. For example, the system pictured below provides 2mm of linear motion in one axis and +/- 2 degrees of rotational motion about two additional axes. The construction materials used in this particular system are aluminum and titanium alloys.
