Pifoc piezo objective scanners
Physik Instrumente (PI) has introduced a low-cost series of fast piezo focusing devices designed to improve results in fast focusing and lens positioning as well as in deconvolution/3D imaging.
The Pifoc piezo objective scanner system packages consist of closed-loop piezomechanic objective positioners and custom-tuned compact digital servo controller/driver units.
The integrated, frictionless and high-stiffness piezo flexure drive ensures fast response and short settling times as well as high guiding accuracy, according to the company.
The digital controller is said to provide several advantages compared with the conventional analogue controllers of the fast focusing systems currently available, including higher linearity, improved settling performance, quicker adaptation to changing motion requirements and better access to advanced automation functions.
- Complete system with fast digital controller and software
- Choice of travel ranges: 100µm, 250µm or 400µm
- Sub-nanometre resolution
- Choice of position feedback sensors
Physik Instrumente (PI) has collaborated with IMMS and the Department of Mechatronics at Ilmenau University of Technology to develop a nanopositioning system based on the principle of magnetic levitation. It has been designed for the semiconductor, life sciences and biotechnology sectors.
The MCS XY stage from Physik Instrumente (PI) Micos is designed for industrial measurement applications and combines high guiding and positioning accuracy with loads of up to 20kg and high dynamics.
Physik Instrumente (PI) has introduced the C-884 motion controller that is said to simplify the programming of positioning systems in automation environments that follow a special industry or laboratory standard or a manufacturer-specific device standard.
Physik Instrumente (PI) is offering six-axis robotic parallel positioners for advanced applications in fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, aerospace, medical technology and lasers and photonics.
The Micos range of precision linear stage positioners from Physik Instrumente (PI) is suitable for applications such as semiconductor alignment, biotechnology, aerospace technology, fibre-optic alignment, microscopy and optics research.
