Since 1992, the birth days of the digital printing technology, we have designed and manufactured thousands of digital printing machines, for companies such as Kornit Digital and Dip-Tech, as well as main sub-assemblies for HP, Agfa and others.
With our know-how in digital printing, stepping in to the 3D printing industry was just natural, as a lot of challenges, methods and technologies are shared across these 2 sectors.
In recent years, we have manufactured large format 3D printing machines for companies such as Massivit and Stratasys for both polymer and metal printing.
We deliver inspection systems for different industries, from Non Destructive Tests (NDT) done in avionics and aerospace to PCB inspection, for companies such as Orbotech and Scan-Master.
Defense & Security
Our pedestals and gimbals are designed and manufactured as a fully operational units to companies in the defense industries such as IAI, ready to be interfaced with the customer application which is often confidential.
The pedestal or gimbal should perform flawlessly under harsh environmental conditions and will basically determine the entire system accuracy.
Wide range of built to spec, single or multi axes systems for PCB and Microelectronic Industries, accurate Scanning and Calibration motion platforms.
The linear and rotating stages are designed and built using direct drive or precision ball and roller screws actuators and are driven by powerful motion control systems.
We design the stages in optimal configurations with accordance to the application requirements: from small, open frame linear and hollow shaft rotating stages, high rigidity Z stages and up to fully integrated, granite or iron casting based, precision Machine Motion platforms.
Large scale machine chassis and linear beams, up to a length of over 10m and a weight of over 5 tones, which are milled at one pass on modern gantry milling machines, to ensure flatness, parallelity and verticality between different surfaces
A motion system, based on these large elements, is designed for the application, integrated on one of our assembly shops, tested for conformity with the technical specifications and either integrated into a full machine of shipped to the customer to integrate it.
Pedestals & Gimbals
Built to Spec or Application Tailored Gimbals and Pedestals for Homeland Security, Defense and Civil industries.
The payload ranges from hundreds of grams to hundreds of kilograms, stationary or mobile, on the ground, sea and air at 24/7 duty cycle.
Our Gimbals and Pedestals design keys and features:
- High dynamic performances.
