Now also in a non-vacuum version: H-811 miniature Hexapod

Now also in a non-vacuum version: H-811 miniature Hexapod

The H-811 miniature Hexapod from PI (Physik Instrumente) has very compact dimensions with a diameter of only 130 mm and a height of 115 mm. In addition to the vacuum version, it is now also available in an air version.

The H-811 offers travel ranges of up to 35 mm in the XY level and up to 13 mm in the Z direction. It is especially the large tilting angles of 20 degrees around the X and Y axis and up to 40 degrees around the vertical axis that make this Hexapod so versatile. The miniature Hexapod reliably positions loads of up to 5 kg and achieves velocities of up to 10 mm/s. Each individual strut has a positioning resolution of 40 nm; positioning can be done repeatably with accuracies under 1 µm.

The parallel-kinematics 6D positioners are offered as a system including a powerful digital controller and comprehensive software support. There are now two versions available: One in a package with a new compact controller (255 x 226 x 185 mm) that provides the full functionality at a lower system price as well as the Hexapod system with the previous 19-inch rack unit controller, which now offers the control of two further individual servo axes as a standard feature. Additional piezo systems as well as optical or analog inputs can be connected here as an option.
The control takes place via TCP/IP Ethernet or serially via an RS-232 interface. All (target) positions are conveniently given in Cartesian coordinates.

Box text:
Parallel-kinematics systems have several advantages over stacked multi-axis positioners. All six actuators act on a joint platform, which keeps the moved mass low. Moreover, there is no summation of the lateral runout and tilt errors of the individual axes. The pivot point can be selected as desired via software commands and remains independent of the motion.

Well-known for the high quality of its products, PI has been one of the leading players in the global market for precision positioning technology for many years. PI has been developing and manufacturing standard and OEM products with piezo or motor drives for 40 years now. With four German factories and ten subsidiaries and sales offices abroad, the PI group is represented internationally.

New piezo nanopositioning system: versatile, fast and compact with large clear a …
Large clear aperture, high control dynamics, fast settling times and compact dimensions: PI launches a new product line of linear nanopositioning systems for a broad range of applications. The P-630 stages are perfectly suited, e.g. for use in sensor heads or precision motion of objects in optical and tactile metrology as well as for microstructuring. With travel ranges up to 80 µm and a direct piezo actuator drive, the compact positioning
2 mm Travel Range - 20 Milliseconds Settling Time: New Objective Scanner with Pi …
New microscopy methods, such as two-photon microscopy, make it possible to record 3D stacks with up to 1 mm depth in biological samples. For this they require high-performance drives for positioning the objectives. PI (Physik Instrumente) now developed the new N-725 PIFOC® objective scanner with piezo stepping drives especially for position-ing microscopy objectives. The N-725 provides travel ranges of up to 2 mm along the optical axis. At the same time
New Version of M-663 Micropositioning Stage: Benefits of PILine® Drive Technolo …
Cost-effective with 2 µm step size. PI (Physik Instrumente) completes its product line of high-velocity M-663 micropositioning stages. The new linear stage version M-663.5U is especially suited for positioning tasks in automation where a resolution of 0.6 µm and a step size of 2 µm are sufficient. The integrated PILine® linear motor provides push forces to 5 N and a maximum velocity of up to 250 mm/s over a 18 mm
Small Size and High Resolution: New Miniature Stage is Only 24 mm Wide at a Reso …
Physik Instrumente (PI) has introduced the new LPS-24 series. At only 24 × 33 × 20 mm³, these new miniature positioning stages provide a travel range of 15 mm with nanometer-precision resolution. The LPS-24 stages fulfil important requirements for the positioning of optical or mechanical components or for the adjustment and manipulation of samples in application environments with a confined space. For the LPS-24 series, PI uses NEXACT® piezo stepping drives. These

Modular Hexapod System for Fast, Economic and Precise Positioning
PI presents a modular concept for six-axis positioning systems. Due to its modularity, the high-precision parallel kinematics can be adapted fast and efficiently to customer requirements. The six identical Hexapod struts are designed such that their length can be easily scaled. They include the required electronics for reference point switches, limit switches, position sensors and electronic commutation for the brushless DC motors. Their standardized joints allow to combine them with almost
