Join the application specialists at Zaber Technologies for a personalized tour through their corporate headquarters where they design and manufacture all devices in-house. During the workshop, they will introduce the basics of precision actuation, and cover considerations to keep in mind when planning your applications.

They will showcase and discuss examples of applications using precision actuation and demonstrate some of them on their devices. Finally, a hands-on portion will give you the chance to speak with their application specialists one-on-one while testing their products. Light refreshments will be served.

Zaber Technologies designs and manufactures precision motion control devices with optional integrated controllers and encoders. This tour and workshop will be of interest to engineers working with motion control and applications at the micrometer scale, but also to anyone who is interested in learning more about precision actuation. Possible applications include photonics and optics, life sciences, microscopy, and industrial automation.
