Cylinder scanning system used in the ZylScan-System of

The visualization of the surface structure of cylinders in the range of microns is very work-intensive with insufficient results. The interesting characteristics of the surface are scratches, cavities and scoring marcs, carbonization and corrosion as well as polished areas and glossy spots. Common methods like cylinder photography need special cameras and objectives. The objectives need to be adapted to the curvature of the surface.

With the ZylScan-System of Breitmeier Messtechnik GmbH all established cylinder diameters of passenger cars and utility vehicles can be checked without special equipment. One of the core components of the construction is the cylinder scanning system as an OEM solution offered by piezosystem jena. It is used to hold and focus the objective. With a controlled focusing range of 200 microns and a resolution of 5 nanometers the cylinder scanning system is well suited for this and many other applications. The approved rhomboid principle of piezosystem jena guarantees an accurate parallel motion and it reduces the influence at the optical axis. Due to the integrated measurement system a high-precision positioning of the objective could be achieved.

Design characteristics:
• Motion 200 µm (closed loop/ with measurement system)
• Resolution 5 nm (closed loop/ with measurement system)
• High resonant frequency 250 Hz @ 80 g/0.18 lb
• Extremely low rise times
• Several deflection angles
• Flex-adapters for all standard microscope threads
• Flex-adapter for nosepieces
• Considerable accessories

Objective Positioners Adapted To Meet Your Needs For Industrial Applications
piezosystem jena has extended the objective positioner series MIPOS with two new industry products. Typically objective positioners are firmly mounted directly onto a microscope. Piezosystem also introduces two new systems, which can be screwed on a machine or rail. MIPOS 140: Most installed lens positioners require an undesired extension to the optical axis. The distance between the lens and the sample is shortened. This can lead to collisions between the optics and the
Incremental Trigger Function
Trigger signals dependent on the position of the stage Digital piezo-controllers from piezosystem jena (d-Drive and d-Drivepro) offer flexible control for customized systems such as cameras, illumination systems, optical shutters or external measuring systems. Now, piezosystem jena can offer a comfortable trigger function. Trigger signals can be generated dependent on the position of the stage: • Rising edge • Falling edge • On both edges in the direction of movement An additional function sends out a trigger

Beam Tracking with Mirror Tip- and Tilting Piezostage PKS1
In biology applications a laser beam is used for cell stimulation. First the laser beam is redirected onto 2 mirrors then directed to the cells. An important requirement, to hold the laser beam onto the cell is very difficult to achieve due to thermal effects or external vibration. The position of the laser beam needs to be controlled in real-time to track the motion of the cell. For this task a
