1. New Fast, High-Load Hexapod For Motion Simulation, Stabilization, And Cancellation

    PI (Physik Instrumente) recently introduced the H-900KSCO hexapod, designed with dynamic motion in XYZ, pitch roll, and yaw. 6-axis parallel kinematics motion is perfected by PI hexapods delivering nanopositioning precision, high speed, and stability necessary to meet today’s demanding motion control applications.

  2. Crossed Roller Stages Offer High Performance In A Low Profile Package

    Siskiyou offers a new series of crossed roller bearing linear stages that are the thinnest currently available on the market.  The 50.5cr stages are the ideal choice for space or weight constrained applications which still require the high stability, precise movement and relatively high load capacity characteristic of crossed roller bearings.  In addition, these stages feature a non-influencing foil lock mechanism; this is a screw that tightens down to clamp the stage in a fixed position, without changing its existing position.

  3. PI's New Highly Dynamic XY Linear Motor Scanning Stage

    PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. introduces a new compact metrology XY stage – the L-731. The magnetic linear direct drive ensures high velocity and acceleration, ideal for inspection and microscopy.

  4. PI's Ultra-Fast Optical Alignment System For SiP Production Named Prism Award Finalist

    PI (Physik Instrumente) has been named a 2016 Photonics Prism Award finalist for its FMPA Fast Multichannel Photonics Alignment Engine. This award is presented by SPIE & Photonics Media, and the winner will be announced on February 17 during the SPIE Photonics West conference.

  5. Physik Instrumente USA Hires William Culpi As Engineering Chief - PI miCos USA Products

    Physik Instrumente USA extends its support for the PI miCos precision positioning product lines with William Culpi as Engineering Chief PI miCos USA Products.

  6. Precision Piezo Positioning Stages For High Resolution Microscopy By PI

    PI (Physik Instrumente) LP offers a large variety of piezo-driven precision positioners for high resolution microscope applications.

  7. XY Precision Linear Stage For Metrology And Microscopy Applications From PI miCos

    The new PI miCos MCS XY precision linear stage was designed for industrial surface metrology / microscopy applications and combines robustness and high accuracy.

  8. Motion Controller For Precision Linear Positioners And Rotation Stages

    The C-884, 4-axis digital servo controller was designed to control motorized linear translation stages and rotary positioners with very high accuracy and repeatability.  The high-speed encoder interface allows the use of the latest direct-metrology linear and angular scales with resolutions down to the nanometer and microrad realm and below.

  9. New Focus Introduces Open-Loop Picomotor Controller/Driver Module With 4 Channels

    New Focus, a Newport Corporation Brand, announces the new Model 8742 Open-Loop Picomotor controller/driver module with 4 channels. The compact, single-box design with an integrated controller and driver provides a low-cost solution for driving New Focus open-loop Picomotor products. 

  10. Linkam Scientific Instruments Reports On The Launch Of Their New Cryo-Correlative Cooling Stage

    Linkam are pleased to announce the development and launch of a stage for cryo-correlative light/electron microscopy (cryo-CLEM). It was designed in collaboration with scientists at the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC) led by Bram Koster and Erik Bos. Cryo-CLEM is the correlation of images captured with a cryostage on a fluorescent light microscope and images of the same sample observed with Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM).
