July 11 2017 – PI (Physik Instrumente) introduces the A-60x MTT, stainless steel multi-axis top that combines with its offerings of PIglide rotary air bearing stages and platforms. Air-bearings have no rolling or sliding elements and deliver frictionless, non-contact motion, resulting in negligible hysteresis or reversal error, better geometric performance, and velocity stability, which are prerequisites for industrial inspection and manufacturing operations.
Mounted to rotary air bearings to provide manual adjustments in X-Y-tip-tilt, the A-60x MTT enables the alignment of a payload to the bearing’s axis of rotation. Constructed from wear-resistant stainless-steel with table diameters from 75mm to 300mm and a clear aperture, this accessory is designed for metrology, roundness measurement, and part gauging applications.
PI designs and manufactures all air bearing products in the USA. In addition to customized systems for OEMs, PI offers a product line of air bearing stages that includes motorized and non-motorized, linear, rotary, spherical, X/XY, voice coil, compact, and large scale systems, as a complement to its range of piezo nano positioning stages, traditional motorized positioners and hexapod 6-axis parallel positioning systems.
