P-630: Versatile nanopositioning system with high control dynamics and fast settling times.

P-630: Versatile nanopositioning system with high control dynamics and fast settling times.

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 stages reach high scanning frequencies and settling times of only a few milliseconds. At a width of only 50 mm, their clear aperture is relatively large with a diameter of 30 mm.

The drive technology of the highly dynamic piezo nanopositioning systems is based on all-ceramic insulated PICMA® piezo actuators. They have a proven longer lifetime and higher reliability than conventional polymer-insulated actuators.

The P-630 stages achieve nanometer-precise positioning accuracy and stability is using an integrated capacitive position sensor.
Optimum control properties are ensured via the high performance single-channel E-709.CHG Motion Controller. Its digital technology allows for refined linearization algorithms to improve accuracy; the operating parameters can easily be optimized via software.

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

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
