Compact, Highly Dynamic Voice Coil-Driven Linear Scanning Stages

Motion and nanopositioning industry leader PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. introduces a new family of high dynamic linear stages to its PIMag series – the V-52x. Equipped with a linear encoder for direct position measurement and choice of cable exit direction, these stages are ideal for industry and research scanning applications, such as biotechnology, laser beam control, optics scanning, lens testing, and fiber optics.

Six Variations
With travel ranges of 5mm, 10mm, 20mm, and a maximum velocity of 250mm/s, the frictionless drive of the V-52x series ensures high accuracy and long life. An integrated optical linear encoder and precision crossed roller bearings with anti-creep cage assist provide high positioning resolution and guiding accuracy. With very low moving mass and no moving cables, the PIMag magnetic direct linear drive results in high scanning frequencies to tens of Hz while not being subject to wear and tear.
