New PI Brochure: Miniature Precision Linear Stages with Servo Motors, Steppers, Piezo Motors and Voice Coil Drives

(Nanowerk News) PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. -- a leading manufacturer of ultra-precision motion-control and sensing equipment for bio / nanotechnology, photonics, semiconductor and life science applications -- offers a new brochure on Precision Miniature Linear Translation Stages.
The brochure presents a variety of compact and sub-compact positioning stages, featuring sub-micron to sub-nanometer precision and closed-loop position feedback with linear encoders and capacitive gauges.
Systems range from ballscrew-driven, palm-top sized stages with servo & stepper motors to thumbnail-sized piezo-motor driven stages for high-volume applications. High-speed stages are available with voice-coil motors, ultrasonic motors and piezo flexure drives. Non-magnetic and vacuum compatible versions are available as well.
These precision stages are designed for applications in fields such as:
• Test & Measurement
• Optics & Photonics
• Biotechnology
• Aerospace
• Semiconductor Metrology
• Precision Motion Control
• Microscopy
