Design with ironless linear motors improves smoothness

The proprietary PIMag stages do not require mechanical components in the drivetrain as the force is transmitted directly by magnetic forces to the motion platform, without friction and zero-wear on the drive. The ironless, non-cogging linear motors provide very smooth motion, and a high dynamic velocity range along with rapid acceleration. They are ideal for applications where high or extremely constant velocity is required and reliability and maximum uptime are crucial.
