Physik Instrumente releases V-551 motorized linear translation stage

July 31, 2015 - Physik Instrumente releases V-551 motorized linear translation stage equipped with an integrated absolute-measuring, 2nm resolution encoder.

High velocity to 500mm/sec and quick acceleration is provided by an ironless magnetic linear motor, resulting in high accuracy and smooth motion. Precision crossed roller bearings with anti-creep cage assist guarantee excellent guiding accuracy (1 µm straightness / flatness per 100 mm).

Ironless non-cogging linear motors provide very smooth motion, and a high dynamic velocity range along with rapid acceleration. They are ideal for applications where high or extremely constant velocity is required, such as in optics inspection, metrology, photonics, interferometry, and semiconductor test equipment. The frictionless, zero-wear motor drives are also popular in fast automation applications, where reliability and maximum uptime are crucial. The V-551 is available with several travel ranges up to 230 mm. v Affordable Solution with Compact Controller, Custom Versions for OEMs 
Together with PI’s compact C-891 controller, the V-551 stage forms a flexible and affordable positioning system. A lower cost stage variant that swaps the absolute encoder with a high-resolution incremental encoder is also available, as well as custom designs for OEMs with higher resolution, peak force, and different travel ranges.
