SmarAct GmbH

  • Booth: A433

SmarAct in cooperation with SEUM Tronics likes to welcome.

SmarAct develops high-performance solutions for handling and positioning in the micro- and nanometer range. The broad product portfolio – from single positioners to complex parallel kinematics, miniaturized robots, and easy-to-use control systems – is completed by sophisticated measuring equipment based on powerful laser interferometers.

SmarAct is located in Oldenburg (Germany) and was founded in 2005 as a spin-off from the University of Oldenburg. In the last 15 years, we have grown to a company with almost 180 employees who cover the complete production process to ensure a high level of product quality including development, construction, mechanical production, electronic production and assembly. We serve high accuracy positioning and metrology applications in research and industry within such fields as optics, life sciences, micro-assembly, semiconductors, and microscopy.

Maintaining the complete production in-house allows a high level of customization so that we can always provide you with the optimal individual or OEM solution.

 Press Releases

  • For cryogenic applications where highest precision and thermal stability are essential for successful operation, SmarAct has developed cryogenic positioning stages featuring unmatched closed-loop positioning performance with resolutions well below 1 nm. This makes SmarAct's Closed-Loop Cryogenic Stages ideally suited, for example, in the field of fundamental research including 2D materials science or for cryogenic applications such as low-temperature quantum technologies. The high-performance stages are specifically designed to meet the most demanding requirements that world-changing technologies like quantum computing induce. Materials are selected to match the required thermal properties and prevent mechanical stress during cooling and heating cycles. This ensures long lifetime under cryogenic and ultra-high vacuum conditions. Fully non-magnetic versions are available for use in high magnetic fields.

    SmarAct’s positioning stages are known for their durability in various and even extreme environments. For the closed-loop cryogenic variants, SmarAct combines its stick-slip piezo drive stages with its high-performance PicoScale sensor heads, which are based on an all-optical Michelson interferometric design. SmarAct’s Closed-Loop Cryogenic Stages are available with travel ranges from 16 to 49 mm. To fulfill customers' individual requirements, completely customized setups are also possible.

BEWARE - Special Warning Notice about ExpoGuide and FAIRGuide

With the ongoing solicitations, SEMI would like to continue to alert you with questionable professional practices perpetrated against exhibitors by (Austria) and Expo Guide (Mexico), Event Fair - The Exhibitors' Guide with their misleading directory services. There may be others that we are not aware of and are hence not named here. 

These companies provide legitimate exhibition guides aimed at exhibitors across the globe offering online listing services. They use a form which resembles and organizer's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to complete the form for an entry in an on-line directory. Unsuspecting exhibitors who sign and return the form are then contracted into a three-year, non-retractable agreement, which could cost the exhibitor a significant amount of money, with very limited foreseeable benefits. The details are often available on the form itself, but are often too small and insignificant to be noticed. It is always wise to really the small print before signing a contract, and if the information is impossible to read then the contract should not be signed. These publications have no connection with SEMI or any of our events, and it is important that all companies are made aware of this. 

Should you receive any communication from the Expo-Guide and or related company, please IGNORE THEM COMPLETELY and DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH THEM IN ANY WAY.
