New Piezo Nanopositioning System: Versatile, Fast and Compact with Large Clear Aperture


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 80µm 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 50mm, their clear aperture is relatively large with a diameter of 30mm.

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

The P-630 stages achieve nanometre-precise positioning accuracy and stability is using an integrated capacitive positionsensor.

Optimum control properties are ensured via the high performance single-channel E-709.CHGMotion Controller. Its digital technology allows for refined linearisation algorithms to improve accuracy; the operating parameters can easily be optimised via software.
