Positioning Heavy Loads with Nanometer Precision over Long Travel Ranges

Is That Feasible?

Hybrid drives combine two different drive concepts into a high-performance and precision positioning system. They take advantage of both drives. These types of solutions are always in demand when one drive alone is not in a position to meet all of the requirements of applications. An example of this is nanometer-precision positioning of heavy loads over long travel ranges. Nanopositioning systems...

New Hexapod Catalogue

High-Precision Positioning in six Axes

Automating processes in production, inspection, and testing requires increasingly more accuracy in the micrometer or even nanometer range. Hexapods are predestined for precision positioning in several axes. Their parallel-kinematic design allows a greater bandwidth of loads, travel ranges, and velocities. The new catalog now presents the entire product range and includes the extensive range of...

High-Precision Drive Technology from PI is Sharpening the View into Space!

First Light from the VLT using the Adaptive Optics Facility

The adaptive optics facility (AOF), key to correcting image distortion as the light travels through the atmosphere, uses a number of PI translation stages. The image distortion or blurring effect of the Earth’s atmosphere is what causes the stars to twinkle to the naked eye.
