Aerotech Inc. offers laser additive manufacturing systems and components, including linear, rotary, lift, and z-axis stages.

Pittsburgh, PA - Aerotech Inc. offers laser additive manufacturing (AM) systems and components, including linear, rotary, lift and z-axis stages, goniometers, motion controls, drives and motors.

Additive manufacturing and 3D printing are set to revolutionize multiple areas of technology and manufacturing. The dispensing of compounds and coatings requires a 3D motion system to move either the printing head or the substrate with up to six degrees of freedom. Overall system accuracy and throughput are vitally important to creating complex structures with a commercially viable process.

Aerotech offers a full range of additive manufacturing motion systems and components to fit any application. Aerotech manufactures our own motors, drives and motion controllers that can be used to develop your own system. The company's selection of linear, rotary, lift and Z-axis stages and goniometers are complemented by its advanced drives and controls. Aerotech also manufactures a variety of linear motor gantry systems that are available with all electronics and a machine base and are ready to produce immediately upon installation.

Aerotech controllers are available in both stand-alone and software-only versions with from 1 to 32 axes of synchronized control. The company offers both mechanical and air-bearing stages, depending on your requirements. Motors can be brush, brushless, torque, linear or rotary. Steel or granite machine bases are available and easily integrated into your system. The company can engineer and build a custom system as well.
