Custom Solutions For Motion Control

Providing Custom Motion Solutions For 50 Years

For 50 years, Newport's motion team has been developing high precision custom/OEM systems for research, industrial and aerospace customers and providing solutions from system design through manufacture to on-site installation. Today our system capability is represented in three different categories: Technology Platform, Assemblies and Advanced Solutions.  Please see our Custom Motion Systems brochure for additional information.

MC-FEA bracket-S

Our team of application and design engineers support you from concept to in-depth technical discussion and analysis. Support includes design and application engineering as well as project management. System metrology, on-site installation, documentation and training are also available.

FIG 62-S

Newport’s motion controllers provide advanced features of synchronized motion and contouring, trajectories, error compensation, event and triggers function, position capture, interferometric feedback and data acquisition. This covers various levels of applications from simple research that moves an optic, to complex industrial uses that requires coordination of multiple axes with other instruments. Solutions are also available for collision prevention or automation software.
