  1. Long-Travel Piezomotors: New Innovations, New Solutions
    8/3/2012

    In a variety of fields, applications are placing conflicting demands on structural and motion subassemblies. Increasingly, positions must be controlled in more degrees of freedom with higher dynamic and static accuracy, yet faster throughputs and longer travels are necessary to meet financial metrics. By Scott Jordan and Stefan Vorndran PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P.

  2. Advances In Piezo Actuation: Flexure Drives, Ultrasonics, And Piezo-Walk Linear Motors
    5/15/2012

    Piezoelectric actuation is the foundation for a multitude of mission-critical high-technology applications, from semiconductor manufacturing to atomic-force microscopy, from optical tweezers to sub-pixel imaging, from bore-sight systems to genomic sequencing and medical devices. By Scott Jordan and Stefan Vorndran, PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P.

  3. Piezo Rotary Motor for Optical Instrumentation Tech Note
    10/5/2011
    A great many factors come into play when selecting a drive system for a portable precision instrument: The installation space available, the velocities, the accelerations and positional accuracy required, the energy consumption and the reliability of the motorization selected.
  4. Nano-Scale Imaging/Fabrication Advances Driven By Piezoelectric Active Vibration Control
    3/22/2010
    Engineers from TMC and PI have developed active vibration isolation technology based on piezo ceramic solid state actuators that has become an established solution in nano-lithography applications. However, active vibration cancellation can also improve stability and resolution in super-resolution microscopy applications. Based on digital signal processing algorithms and responsive PI piezo technology with the latest ultra-reliability enhancements, patented STACIS active isolators have proven their dependability in mission-critical fab deployment for over a decade. STACIS is now available in small form-factors ideal for emerging applications ranging from advanced microscopies to nanomanufacturing.
