The Gemini actuator from KLA. is the first multidimensional instrument in the world for exploring the dynamics of tribology and mechanical testing at the nanoscale. With this instrument users can gain accuracy, precision, and control.
Accuracy - Gemini actuator offers unparalleled freedom to explore contact mechanics in multiple dimensions. Since Gemini is manufactured by KLA, users can have robust confidence in the correct answer, all the time.
Precision - Unparalleled resolution, dynamic performance, and force range made possible by Gemini’s isometric axes means both lateral and normal axes offer the well-established exactness expected from KLA.
Control - Hardness, adhesion, and wear questions are successfully solved with the multi-axis capability of a Gemini system, the essential tool for accurately examining tribology questions at a resolution that was not possible before.
