Stages with PIMag® Magnetic Direct-Drive Linear Motor

The friction-free magnetic direct drive principle allows for most dynamic stages. Compared with motor-spindle-based stages, they use fewer mechanical components which results in less friction and backlash and thus more precision.

PI’s PIglide stages combine the magnetic direct drive with highly precise preloaded air bearings for even better performance.
