At Zaber, we design and manufacture precision positioning devices that are affordable, integrated, and easy to use. Our devices are used in many different applications and markets, such as photonics and optics, life sciences, microscopy, and industrial automation.
Zaber was founded in 1997 by a group of friends. Back then, precision linear actuators all used DC motors with gearbox and encoders, and they required bulky controllers and a number of other accessories and supplies. Precision motion control was expensive and difficult to set up and use.
Recognizing the need for affordable and integrated solutions for motion control, Zaber released the world's first precision linear actuator with a built-in controller, the T-LA28 Series linear actuator.
Based on a stepper motor instead of a combination of DC motor, gearbox, and encoder, the T-LA28 was the first device to feature all control and drive electronics in one compact package. The integration of all control and drive electronics in the same package became the foundation of Zaber's T-, A- and, later X-Series product lines.
