HERMES Multi-Axis Stepper Bench Equipment

Affordable HERMES Series of High Precision 3-Axis  Large Excursion Capable Equipment

QorTek has developed an agile low cost options for high speed/high-precision multi-axis stepper applications.  Available for under $8,000, the new HERMES Large Excursion Capable series are designed to have extremely tight dimensional tolerance and positional repeatability.

In addition to the conventional x-y stepper capability the HERMES Multi-axis Equipment design also incorporates a manually operated cantilevered Z stage supporting any of a range of precision instruments, such as a point laser micrometer, enabling a wide range of application flexibility in a single tool.

HERMES Series Steppers have found uses in materials quality inspection applications.  Material properties, such as surface quality and thickness uniformity data, are readily obtained a HERMES-based metrology.   

The HERMES equipment incorporates QorTek proprietary and patented x-y matrix scanning system speed in a raster pattern and algorithms for ultra fast operation.  The resulting fine matrix array (as little as 3 microns apart) provides accurate measurement of evaluation parts and materials acceptance parameters.
