We present a micromachined three-dimensional electrostatic actuator optimized for aligning and tuning optical microcavities on atom chips. The actuation in the chip plane which is used for miror positioning has a working envelope of 17 m. The design incorporates a unique locking mechanism which allows the out-of-plane actuation used for cavity tuning to be carried out once the in-plane actuation is completed. A maximum translation of 7 m can be achieved in this direction.
