Compact, Highly Dynamic Voice Coil-Driven Linear Scanning Stages, Released by PI

(Nanowerk News) Motion and nanopositioning industry leader PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. introduces a new family of high dynamic linear stages to its PIMag series the V-52x. Equipped with a linear encoder for direct position measurement and choice of cable exit direction, these stages are ideal for industry and research scanning applications, such as biotechnology, laser beam control, optics scanning, lens testing, and fiber optics.
V-522, V-524, V-528 Compact High-Speed Linear Motor Stage
V-522, V-524, V-528 Compact High-Speed Linear Motor Stage.
Six Variations
With travel ranges of 5mm, 10mm, 20mm, and a maximum velocity of 250mm/s, the frictionless drive of the V-52x series ensures high accuracy and long life. An integrated optical linear encoder and precision crossed roller bearings with anti-creep cage assist provide high positioning resolution and guiding accuracy. With very low moving mass and no moving cables, the PIMag magnetic direct linear drive results in high scanning frequencies to tens of Hz while not being subject to wear and tear.
Features & Advantages
  • – Travel Ranges 5, 10, and 20mm
  • – Voice Coil Linear Motor Direct Drive
  • – No Moving Cables
  • – Velocity up to 250 mm/s
  • – Linear Encoder, 0.1 Micrometers Resolution
  • – Crossed Roller Bearings
