New Whitepaper: Piezo Tip/Tilt Systems

Design – Performance – Tuning

Piezo tip/tilt systems from PI (Physik Instrumente) are versatile positioning systems ─ they are ideal for dynamic operation in applications such as scanning, tracking, for suppressing drift oscillation or dynamic image stabilizing. Piezo tip/tilt systems and scanners offer greater acceleration and dynamic bandwidth than similar actuators such as for example, voice coil or galvanometer scanners....

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...
