A low-cost, compact piezo XY-positioner cum scanner for resolution enhancement and image stabilization by pixel substepping has been introduced by Piezo scanning stage specialist PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P.
This OEM system, which is low profile and cost effective, has been specifically developed with 2250 Hz high mechanical resonant frequency to promote raoid scanning and response. It is powered by PICMA multilayer piezo actuators, which are analogous to the ones tested at Jet Propulsion Lab for 100 Billion Cycles of NASA. To give feedback for applications where precision and high repeatability are required, the sub-nanometer resolution is achieved by Piezo actuators.
The OEM system is used for nanopositioning, resolution enhancement in infrared sensors, image scanning, and scanning microscopy and image stabilization. It has a compact design for easy integration, ultra-long-life Piezo ceramic drives, a resonant frequency above 2 kHz to provide faster settling and scanning, and low-inertia parallel-kinematic design for high response rates. The bench top controllers and compact OEM controllers are available for testing.
PI is a ransomed manufacturer of precision motion systems such as Microscope Stages, Linear Stages, Piezo Flexure Stages, Hexapod 6-Axis Stages, Motor Controllers, and Piezo Nanopositioning Systems for bio-nanotechnology, photonics, medical device and semiconductor applications. The company has been producing both standard and custom precision products with electromagnetic and piezoceramic drives for four decades. It offers advanced and high-quality products and solutions for research and OEM applications.
