Precision motion with servos and steppers
Brochure on precision linear translation stages
Brochure presents a variety of compact and sub-compact positioning stages, featuring sub-micron to sub-nanometer precision and closed-loop position feedback with linear encoders and capacitive gauges
PI (Physik Instrumente) offers a new brochure on precision miniature linear translation stages.
Systems range from ballscrew-driven, palm-top sized stages with servo and stepper motors to thumbnail-sized piezo-motor driven stages for high-volume applications.
High-speed stages are available with voice-coil motors, ultrasonic motors and piezo flexure drives.
Non-magnetic and vacuum compatible versions are available as well.
These precision stages are designed for applications in fields such as test and measurement, optics and photonics, biotechnology, aerospace, semiconductor metrology, precision motion control, microscopy.
Physik Instrumente’s E-482 power amplifier and controller outputs 6A peak current for high-voltage piezo actuators.
Hexapod and SpaceFAB parallel precision robotic positioning systems are used in diverse set of applications.
Physik Instrumente has released a technical article detailing three piezo-based drive principles.
These closed-loop stages were designed for high-dynamics precision motion control applications, like those in biotechnology; laser beam control; scanning; optics and lens finishing; and fibre optics
PI's patented P-652 piezoelectric linear-motor driven translation stage is significantly smaller than other miniature-stages and provides very high speed and resolution
