From Miniaturized Actuators to Large Gantries

In addition to a large range of standard air bearing products, PI can design custom motion systems, from miniature linear actuators and spindles to large multi-axis gantry systems. Both motorized, closed-loop and passive air bearing solutions are available, and air bearings can be designed to perform multiple functions in a very compact package, using the air for both bearing and actuation purposes.

Why Air Bearings?

Air bearing technology has long been recognized as a superior solution for high-precision motion control, offering frictionless and vibration-free movement and exceptional velocity stability. PI’s air bearing motion systems harness the advantages of this technology and enhance it further through advanced motion control algorithms – improving step and settle times, noise, and tracking accuracy. By combining state-of-the-art hardware and software, these systems can achieve ultra-precise positioning and exceptional dynamic performance, with virtually unlimited service life, significantly surpassing traditional motion control systems.
