Let’s build the right motion solution for you

Dover Motion’s core strength is collaborating with our clients to understand their project and configure the right motion solution to fit their unique application. With more than 50 years of experience, we understand your needs, industry, and application, and can provide you the flexibility needed to hit even the most challenging cost and schedule targets.

Experts for hire

We have more than five decades of experience creating motion solutions for the life sciences, diagnostics, and factory automation industries, designing multi-axis stages for applications such as imaging, optics, focusing, positioning, and motion control.

In working with Dover Motion, your internal team of engineers can focus on your core technology while we focus on ours. Making things move is what we do. We specialize in overcoming all sorts of motion challenges, from controlling motion at the nanometer level to driving high frame rates and critical focus in automated imaging systems.

We speak your language

This is your project and we are here to help. Dover Motion clients can communicate directly with the engineers working on their project and maintain an iterative dialogue throughout the design process. We understand your industry and workflow and will work with you to build the right motion solution that will integrate seamlessly into your system and achieve both your motion and cost goals.

Here for the long run

Dover products are as reliable as the Dover team. Many of our products have been in the field for decades, running in incredibly challenging conditions such as the crowded confines of a diagnostics instrument or the high-vacuum setting of outer space.

Our in-house machine shop allows us to tailor-make quality precision parts and make sure that every component of your motion solution is just right. We also test every product under the same conditions they’ll be operating under in the field to ensure long and efficient operation.

Examples of success

See a selection of case studies below that demonstrate examples of our custom motion solutions.

Cell Morphology Imaging

Through concurrent and collaborative engineering, Dover Motion designed a compact custom XYZ stage solution to produce high-precision cell imaging in parallel with the instrument design.

Fluorescence Microscopy Compact XYZ Stage

Dover Motion worked closely with Invetech to define the motion system requirements and tightly integrate the hardware in the overall instrument design.

3D Metrology XY Stage

To minimize the overall size, Dover Motion used compact stepper motors with integrated lead screws. Placing the motors within the stage structure enabled all wiring to be concealed and to exit at the bottom of the stage.
