Photon Control’s measurement technologies have produced successful solutions for a wide range of applications for over 24 years. While our products are highly adaptable – and we are constantly researching new applications – we have developed particular expertise in developing solutions to measurement problems in the following industries: OEM Manufacturing, Semiconductors, Oil & Gas, Lifesciences and Power Generation.

Semiconductor Wafers:
The manufacture of wafers for semiconductors involves a multitude of processes, and monitoring and maintaining correct temperatures and positioning at all times is crucial. Photon Control is a leader in the semiconductor industry, and many Fortune 500 companies come to us for our positioning and temperature sensor expertise.
Silicon wafer production involves numerous different processes and has to be highly accurate. The positioning needs to be spot on as wafers move through the various processes, and the temperature must be correct. The temperature often also needs to vary hugely within short spaces of time. If the accuracy is off, there can be a lot of wastage – which costs manufacturing companies a lot of money.
We supply temperature and positioning sensors that are the technology within the technology, when it comes to wafer manufacturing equipment. Our sensors are accurate and reliable up to very high or low temperatures. They can also resist electromagnetic radiation and help reduce wafer wastage through highly accurate positioning.

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- and, later, A-Series product lines.
Since introducing our first series, our product offering has grown to include over 100 motion control products, which are distributed worldwide. We continue to advance our design and manufacturing capabilities, allowing us to build, test, and ship most of our products within 1-5 business days.
