High system precision is guaranteed by absolute encoders and an actuator resolution of 8 nanometers – with excellent position repeatability of ±0.1µm and ±2µrad, respectively.

  5. Compact Closed-Loop Motion Controller Provides Nanometer Resolution For Miniature Piezo Motor Micrometers
    10/27/2017

    PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P., known industry-wide for nanometer precision motion components, systems, and OEM solutions, announces a new compact closed-loop motion controller. The new E-871.1A1N digital servo controller is the latest model in a series of drivers and controllers specifically designed for inertia-motor based opto-mechanical actuators (piezo ratchet drives) that are widely used in the semiconductor, laser and photonics industry for fine-tuning of complex systems. The miniature actuators are often employed as “set-and-forget” mechanisms with an option to remotely make adjustments, where manual micrometer screws would necessitate a system-shutdown to allow for corrections. Other application fields include bio-nanotechnology, microscopy, and micro-manipulation.
