    10/19/2015

    The PIglide MB is an air bearing stage that is linear servo motor driven, and features fully preloaded air bearings and an integral optical linear encoder. The stage has a non-contact design for frictionless, high-quality performance within a miniature package.

  2. PIMag® Precision Linear Stage: V-551
    8/11/2015

    The V-551 is a PIMag® Precision Linear Stage with a travel range up to 230mm and a velocity up to 0.5 m/s. The stage employs an ironless magnetic drive for high velocity & acceleration, has a high position resolution by sine-commuted control, and includes a modularly configurable push/pull force.

  3. Electromagnetic Positioning System: PIMag® 6D
    6/8/2015

    The PIMag® 6D is an electromagnetic positioning system with a passive platform levitating on a magnetic field generated by only six planer coils in the stator, with the magnetic field being actively controlled using a 6D sensor. Due to the absence of any mechanical contact in the drivetrain or the guides, there is no friction or wear to contaminate the workspace.

  4. Beamline Instrumentation Group
    3/28/2015

    PI’s Beamline Instrumentation Group provides precision solutions for nanotomography, laminography, vacuum chambers, full-field X-ray microscopes, and systems with nanoscopic spatial resolution. Because beamline instrumentation applications require an advanced motion control strategy, this group of physicists and engineers have closely collaborated with scientific staff at universities and research centers to develop complex and application-specific motion control solutions for their specific needs.

  5. Precision Linear Stage: M-417
    11/19/2014

    The M-417 linear stage offers precision positioning for the scientific and industrial marketplaces, particularly in applications that call for high duty cycles. It offers velocity to 100 mm/s, low crosstalk with +100 µrad over the 500mm travel range, 0.5 µm design resolution, and minimal incremental motion to 0.5 µm.

  6. High-Load Hexapod for Precise and Repeatable Positioning: H-850KLMD
    7/24/2014

    PI’s H-850KMLD is a positioning hexapod with a load capacity to 500 kg and travel ranges to 100 mm/60o. It’s ideal for optics alignment, aerospace applications, semiconductor manufacturing, astronomical telescopes, high energy physics, satellite antenna alignment, medical tumor treatment, and other positioning application that call for a minimal incremental motion of 1µm (X, Y) or 0.5µm (Z).

  7. Miniature Piezo Positioning Stage: LPS-22
    2/27/2014

    This miniature piezo positioning stage is available in sizes from 22 x 22 x 10 mm and offers 1/4” to 1” travel. It's driven by a compact piezo inertia motor, and open-loop and encoder equipped versions enabling 1nm resolution are available.

  8. LPS-24 Linear Translation Stage Driven by Miniature Piezo Nanopositioning Motor
    7/31/2013

    This miniature positioning stage uses the NEXACT® high-resolution piezoelectric linear drive. The result is a compact stage (only 24 mm width) with a holding force of up to 5 N, a less than 1 nm resolution nanostepping mode, constant velocity motion, and a long lifetime.

  9. N-470 Piezoelectric Replacement Actuator for Optomechanical Systems
    7/27/2013

    PI’s N-470  is a Piezoelectric replacement actuator for optomechanical systems. It features minimum dimensions, greater than 100 N holding force, stable positioning, a 7.4 mm travel range, a 22 N feed force, and a 30 nm step size. It’s self-locking and generates no heat at rest.

  10. Fast Rotation Stages With Ultrasonic Motors
    7/26/2013

    PI offers a miniature rotary stage series with ultrasonic piezo motor drives. These fast miniature rotary positioning stages feature an integrated position encoder, greater than 720o/s velocity, and an unlimited rotation range. Additionally, these stages are fast and self-locking without the need of a brake. They are ideally suited for the R&D and industrial markets requiring a sample handling and positioning solution in a limited space.
