High quality, perfectly spherical miniature balls
MPS Microsystems does everything possible to produce perfectly spherical balls. A ball, or a sphere, is manufactured from an extruded wire which takes several days. The skilfully developed heat treatment gives the stainless steel exceptional physical characteristics and a minimum hardness of 58 HRC. The final step is polishing. It guarantees a mirror-polished ball and precision exceeding all expectations.
MPS is a past master in making balls less than a millimetre in diameter and can even go down to 0.150 mm. These miniature balls produced meet ‘Grade 3’, the highest quality level defined by the ISO 3290/DIN 5401 standard.
Tubular optical system with perfect co-axiality for applications requiring constant alignment over the entire stroke, low angular variations, and very long lifetime without need of maintenance
Based on proven experience with the realisation of past successful projects MPS has designed and characterised a scalable Theta/Phi fiber positioner for Multi-Object Spectrographs.
