Fully functional in the smallest possible space: The miniature piezo motor is mounted directly on the circuit board for the driver electronics

Fully functional in the smallest possible space: The miniature piezo motor is mounted directly on the circuit board for the driver electronics

The new U-155 miniature motor from the micropositioning and nanopositioning specialist Physik Instrumente (PI) makes life easy for the user: The load coupling can be adapted to customer specifications, the drive fits into (almost) any installation space even though the driver electronics are already integrated.

The new microdrive takes on mechanical manipulations, the positioning of small objects, the operation of switches or valves, or dosing tasks, for example. Despite its compact dimensions, the U-155 has outstanding performance characteristics:
• 100 mm/s speed
• 4 mm travel range
• 0.7 N force
• Minimum power consumption

Moreover, the drive does not need to be supplied with electricity to hold its position, it therefore does not produce heat and has no positional jitter.

The integration is simplified because the drive is mechanically mounted on a circuit board. This circuit board already contains the driver electronics required for operation. It is controlled with 5 volt signals. Its low power consumption means that the power supply can also be decentralized by means of a battery.

PI has been one of the leading players in the market for precision positioning technology for 40 years. Piezoelectric ceramic drive elements which produce finely controllable motion play a significant role here. In conjunction with its subsidiary company PI Ceramic, PI manufactures piezo drives in-house to meet specific requirements. This expertise provides PI with unique flexibility and puts it way ahead technologically. In addition to its three German factories, PI has eight subsidiaries and a total of 500 employees worldwide.

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
