January 18, 2018 – PI (Physik Instrumente) released a new 250 page catalog on mechatronic actuators and nanopositioning systems based on piezo drive technology and frictionless flexure guiding systems. Products covered in this catalog use PI’s in-house designed and manufactured Mars Rover-tested piezo ceramic actuators as their drive principle.
A special form of electro-ceramics, piezo actuators deliver a combination of precision, speed, and force. Their lack of friction, particle generation, and associated wear makes them suitable for many high-tech applications including photonics, super-resolution microscopy, high-speed dispensing and switching, medical engineering, etc. Miniaturized systems are available for integration into new or existing industrial, research, and OEM systems. Where a standard system cannot be used, customized solutions are available as outlined in the intro-section of the catalog.
Examples of standard products highlighted in this publication range from OEM-type flexure actuators to 6-axis integrated nanopositioning systems, laser steering systems, and photonics alignment systems. Along with the piezo mechanic systems, digital controllers and sub-nanometer position sensors are part of the solutions PI offers. Many of these precision motion products will be showcased at Photonics West in San Francisco later this month.Learn More
