Abstract: This paper describes a high-precision fiber-positioning system currently being constructed for fiber-fed multiple-object spectroscopy, that will position optical fibers with an accuracy of better than 10 microns. The subsystems of this positioning system, which consists of mechanical frame, the x-y positioning system, fiber button gripper assembly for z positioning, and measurement system, are described in detail. This high-precision positioning system is mechanically stable and is essentially invariant to environmental conditions while in use.
