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

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.
