Tiny claims for piezo stages
The PicoCube is dubbed the world's smallest multi-axis, closed-loop, piezo nano-manipulation and scanning stage family.
The PicoCube is dubbed the world's smallest multi-axis,closed-loop, piezo nano-manipulation and scanning stage family.P-363 PicoCube x-y and x-y-z piezo stages areultra-high-performance, closed-loop piezoelectric scanningsystems.
Designed for AFM (atomic force microscopy), SPM(scanning probe microscopy) and nanomanipulation applications,they combine an extremely low-inertia (10kHz resonant frequency),high-speed piezo scanner with noncontact, direct-measuring,parallel-metrology capacitive feedback capable of 50pmresolution.
Based on a parallel-metrology system with capacitivefeedback, the compact unit is a design breakthrough inclosed-loop piezo scanner technology.
Parallel metrology can"see" all controlled degrees of freedom simultaneouslyand compensate for the slightest off-axis motion in real time.The benefits are reduction of runout and off-axis errors,straighter motion and improved repeatability.
N-216 Nexline drives from Physik Instrumente (PI) are a series of high-load linear actuators suitable for nanopositioning applications.
The M-272 linear actuator from Physik Instrumente (PI) is designed for automation applications based on maintenance-free PILine ultrasonic ceramic motors.
Physik Instrumente (PI) is offering positioning and linear actuators that operate on the basis of piezo ceramics and are suitable for use in high and ultra-high vacuums at pressures down to 10–10hPa (mbar).
According to Physik Instrumente (PI), its N-380 Nexact linear actuators can replace conventional stepper motors and DC servomotors.
The M-683.2V4 translation stage, which Physik Instrumente (PI) claims is one of the flattest micro-translation stages on the market, is now available for use in vacuum environments to 10-6mbar.
