    10/19/2016

    The Onyx Series is comprised of tabletop vibration isolation systems designed to isolate sensitive microscopes and research equipment from the vibrations caused by foot traffic, HVAC systems, nearby operating machinery, etc. These systems are ideal for use in optical microscopes, precision inspection stations, highly sensitive lab equipment, micromanipulation, interferometry, and profilometry.

  3. Precision Micro-Translation Stage For Single And Multi-Axis Positioning: M-122
    8/24/2016

    PI’s new M-122 is a palm-top-sized micro-translation stage designed with small dimensions and high speeds for single and multi-axis precision positioning. Due to its low-friction, preloaded, precision-ground ball-screw and a non-contacting optical linear encoder, these stages provide higher accuracy and enhanced repeatability in a variety of applications including photonics packaging, fiber positioning, metrology, quality assurance testing, testing equipment, and micromachining.

  4. Controller for Miniature Piezo Stages – E-873
    8/1/2016

    PI’s new E-873 controls miniature piezo stages of the Q-motion series for microscopy and photonics applications. Q-motion stages provide nanometer resolution at an affordable price. The E-873 is a benchtop device with options for control cabinet mounting, and has three channels with integrated power amplifiers and an interpolator. The device features a point-to-point motion and actuator mode for nanometer precision positioning at the target position.

  5. Piezo Nanopositioning Stage Features Up To 52mm Travel
    6/28/2016

    The N-565 is an ultra-precision linear positioner stage with NEXACT® PiezoWalk® technology, and designed with a subnanometer encoder resolution for high-end applications in bio-nanotechnology, fiber-optics, microscopy, semiconductor testing, metrology, and scientific research in beamlines and laser labs. With long 13 mm, 26 mm, or 52 mm travel ranges, high forces, and stiffness, this stepping drive does not subject to sliding friction or wear.

  6. PILine® Linear Positioning Stage With Ultrasonic Piezomotor: U-521
    5/17/2016

    The U-521 is a PILine® stage with an ultrasonic piezomotor designed particularly for applications requiring fast precision positioning such as micromanipulation, automation, biotechnology, sample manipulation, and sample positioning. The positioning stage features a self-locking mechanism, when switched off, for keeping the stage mechanically stable and reducing energy consumption and heat generation.

  7. High-Load Hexapod For Motion Simulation, Stabilization, And Cancellation: H-900KSCO
    5/4/2016

    The H-900KSCO is a reference-class, 6-axis positioning system designed for dynamic motion in all degrees of freedom (X, Y, Z, pitch, roll, yaw). This compact hexapod provides linear travel ranges up to 200 mm and rotation to 66 degrees for applications such as motion simulation, industrial production, precision machining, automotive industry, and stabilization of motion on moving vehicles and vessels.
