October 28, 2007 - PI (Physik Instrumente) offers a new brochure on piezo ceramic linear motors. Non-Magnetic and Vacuum Compatible These motor actuators are non-magnetic, vacuum compatible and achieve significantly higher forces and resolution than other piezo motor designs, such as ultrasonic motors or inertial motors. PiezoWalk Stepping Principle: High Force, Dynamics, Sub-nm ResolutionThe new linear motors are based on the patented PiezoWalk principle and achieve forces from 2 kg to 60 kg per actuator. They are available in two versions called NEXLINE (higher force) and NEXACT (smaller, and faster). In addition to a long-range step mode, both also provide a very high dynamics sweep / scanning mode, enabling 50 picometers of resolution and kHz range bandwidth. Integration in Positioning Systems These novel motor actuators are also available as drive systems in nanopositioning linear stages and multi-axis positioning systems, such as 6-axis Hexapods or tripod Z/tip/tilt platforms. Applications Fields:
  • Optics & Photonics
  • Aerospace
  • Semiconductor Test & Measurement, Alignment
  • Precision Motion Control
