PI publishes Positioning and Motion Control Catalog
July 17, 2013 - PI (Physik Instrumente) publishes Positioning and Motion Control Catalog
The publication covers PI and PI miCos precision positioning technologies and product families from motorized linear translation stages to 6-axis parallel kinematic positioners and from piezo flexure nanopositioning systems to high-speed ceramic linear motors along with the associated drivers and motion controllers.
In addition to product specifications, the high-quality-print catalog also contains fundamental information on several micropositioning and nanopositioning technologies; high-resolution sensor technologies; parallel-kinematic positioning basics; as well as a comprehensive tutorial on piezo technology The catalog integrates with PI's website and is not intended to be a collection of datasheets, The main focus is providing an overview on different motion technologies and pointing the user in the right direction. CAD drawings, manuals and other detailed documentation can be obtained from the internet and PI's application engineers are available to further discuss the application.
Examples of technologies and product families covered:
- Several types of ceramic linear motors (ultrasonic, stick-slip, piezowalk…)
- Several types of motorized linear stages (linear motor, stepper motor, leadscrew / ballscrew)
- Several types of rotation stages (air bearing, worm-drive, torque motor, stepper motor, piezo motor)
- Several types of piezo flexure nanopositioning systems (open / closed-loop, serial and parallel-kinematics, variety of feedback and driving methods)
- Several types of parallel and serial kinematics positioning systems (SpaceFAB, Hexapod, stacked stages)
- Precision positioning products for high-resolution microscopy
- Several types of linear actuators (piezo, servo, stepper motorized)
- Motion controllers for piezo systems, hexapods, servo motors, piezo motors, and stepper motors
- Miniature positioning stages with different motor drives
- Piezo ceramics / piezo actuators
- Fast steering mirrors
- Photonics alignment systems
