Cuty Aligner

Cuty Aligner
The standalone version high-precision UVW stage alignment system

Cuty Aligner

Cuty Aligner is a stand-alone system to manipulate the UVW axis stage for alignment manually.
It is optimal not only for "the visual observation manual alignment operation" when an automatic alignment isn't possible, but also for "the remote operation alignment activity" in the special area where the human being can not enter.

 The manual operating system by the XYθ/UVW coordinate transformation controller.

1. The simple structure by UVW stage adoption.
2. Easy manual operation by Joy stick
3. Automatic operation by a point table is possible.


1. The simple structure by UVW stage adoption.

UVW stage
In various alignment mechanism, adopting UVW stage can realize the machine configuration which is simpler than the conventional XYθ stacking axis stage, but on the other side "calculation / contol of the movement-directive of the 3-axis composition" are complicated and troublesome to design.

Cuty-Aligner solves the troublesome designing and it can be easily operated manually.

2. Easy manual operation by Joy stick

Joy stick
It is possible to manipulate the XY direction with the "Joy stick", and the θ direction (rotation) with the "rotary knob". The "rotary knob" can be used at the same time with the "Joy stick".
It is possible for the Joy stick to move a diagonal direction, too. (Stick down angle and speed interlock function is built in.)

It can be accurately moved to the target position by the speed setting with the switches of "fast", "slow", "step". (Each speed can be set with the system parameters.)

3. Point table operation

Point table operation
Cuty-Aligner has a built-in positioning function.
By the external control input and communication command, it is possible to make the program operation using the point table data stored in the internal memory (up to 256 points).
