New Voice-Coil and Piezo-Driven Micropositioning and Nanopositioning Stages for Imaging and Microscopy

PI is well-known for its piezo-based high-speed nanopositioning and scanning systems designed to improve super-resolution microscopy results. The latest piezo-driven nano focusing stage for microscope objectives now combines an industry leading 800 µm vertical travel with sub-nanometer resolution, millisecond response times and excellent guiding precision based on frictionless flexure guides. The high performance and longer travel range improves OCT scanning performance and two photon microscopy applications. The new piezo focus system also comes with an upgraded digital nanopositioning controller and software, compatible with leading image acquisition programs.

For longer travel focusing and scanning applications, a new compact voice-coil driven nanopositioning focus stage is introduced. The V-308 stage provides 7 mm of travel with nanometer resolution. The integrated user-adjustable magnetic preload allows for easy adaptability to different size objectives. Three different controller options, from desktop to miniaturized OEM boards are available to run the fast-focusing stage.

6-Axis Hexapod Parallel Manipulators

PI will also be showing examples of high precision motorized 6-axis hexapod parallel manipulators. These allow programmed moves in all six degrees of freedom with sub-micrometer precision and repeatability.

Low-Profile, High Speed Microscope Stages with Wide Dynamic Range and Excellent in Position Stability

PI’s patented ultrasonic piezomotor technology allows for the design of high stability microscope stages with extremely low profile. These stages also provide a very wide velocity range from microns/second to more than 100 mm/second. These long-travel, low profile XY microscope stages are complete with controllers, software and joystick.

Microscopy Imaging and Bio-Nanotechnology Solution Packages

Researchers make use of the sub-atomic resolution and extreme responsiveness of piezo stages and nanopositioners to create higher-quality images faster. PI provides a large variety of fast Z-sample stages and XYZ nanopositioning and scanning for 3D imaging, deconvolution, and fast auto-focusing applications.
