Are you looking for innovative products to advance your applications in the field of high precision technology? Whether it’s positioning technology, metrology or automation technology, we are the right partner for you.
Your confidence in our capabilities and joint successes have led our team to grow to 200 highly skilled members.
Our ever-growing product portfolio includes proven items and/or systems for your diverse needs. In addition, we excel in designing special devices tailored to your needs and implementing them in an uncomplicated and speedy manner. We have strengthened these capabilities by establishing three business units.

In our Motion business unit, we develop and produce high-precision, compact products for nano-positioning that meet the highest demands while being easy to handle. Our product classes are:

  • SMARSLIDE – piezoelectric positioning stages with a large positioning range from a few mm to over a meter, which can also be used under extreme environmental conditions
  • SMARSHIFT – fast and highly accurate electromagnetic positioning stages
  • SMARFLEX – high resolution and dynamic scanners based on compliant structures
  • SMARBOTIC – complex positioning systems and robots with multiple degrees of freedom

Our Metrology business unit offers components and solutions for high-resolution measurement of position displacements as well as tools for component characterization and failure analysis. Our measurement systems are:

  • PICOSCALE Interferometer – compact laser interferometers with a picometer resolution
  • METIRIO – miniaturized optical encoders; also for demanding environmental conditions

Our solutions for component characterization are:

  • PICOSCALE Vibrometer for the detection of in-plane and out-of-plane vibrations with pm resolution
  • SMARPROBE – nano-probing platform that allows to push the limits of technical feasibility in failure analysis on wafers, ASICS and MEMS.

In our Automation business unit, we support you in all aspects of automating the production of miniaturized components and systems, such as optical and opto-electrical assemblies. We design and produce high-throuput production equipment, including development of the production process, if required. The installation and commissioning of our systems at your site and the usual SmarAct service are of course included.
