New Catalog on Piezo-Mechanic Nanopositioning Motion Systems for OEM, Industry and Research Released

Motion and nano precision positioning systems leader PI (Physik Instrumente) released a new 250 page catalog on precision mechatronic actuators and nanopositioning systems based on piezo drive technology and frictionless flexure guiding systems.  Products covered in this catalog use PI’s in-house designed and manufactured Mars Rover-tested piezo ceramic actuators as their drive principle.

Markets / Standard & Custom Solutions / OEM Products

A special form of electro-ceramics, piezo actuators deliver a unique combination of precision, speed, and force in a small package. Their lack of friction, particle generation, and associated wear makes them ideal for many high tech applications including photonics, super-resolution microscopy, high-speed dispensing and switching, medical engineering, etc. Miniaturized systems are available for easy integration into new or existing industrial, research, and OEM systems. Where a standard system cannot be used, customized solutions are available as outlined in the intro-section of the catalog.

Examples of standard products highlighted in this publication range from low-cost OEM-type flexure actuators to 6-axis integrated nanopositioning systems, ultra-fast laser steering systems, and photonics alignment systems. Along with the piezo mechanic systems, digital controllers and sub-nanometer precise position sensors are part of the solutions PI offers. Many of these state-of-the-art precision motion products will be showcased at Photonics West in San Francisco later this month.

Long-Life Actuators

PI’s piezo actuators were tested by NASA/JPL for the Mars mission and passed 100 billion cycles of life testing without failures.

Applications

Applications include optical microscopy, AFM, mechanical engineering, industrial manufacturing, quality assurance, scientific instrumentation, nano-dispensing, photonics packaging, astronomy, semiconductor test and manufacturing.
