attoMOTION Industrial Line: piezo-based positioning drive series for industrial application

(PresseBox) (Munich, ) Focusing on the needs of today's nanotechnology industry for highly precise, reliable, and equally cost-effective positioning systems, attocube systems have established the ECS "Industrial Line". The piezo-based nanopositioning motors satisfy highest expectations in terms of precision and stability. Due to their unrivaled accuracy, the compact drive units realize most accurate positioning tasks e.g. in precision machining and are further successfully utilized for the nano precise alignment of optical and mechanical components.

The "Industrial Line" product range consists of a variety of piezo-based linear, rotational, and goniometric positioning units. All products can simply be mounted on top of each other in order to achieve multi-degree of freedom motion devices offering up to 6 movement axes.

All positioning units can optionally be equipped with an opto-numeric position encoder, with a position resolution of 1 nm for linear and 10/1 µ° for rotational/goniometric positioners, respectively. A compact three axes drive electronics, the ECC100, allows the user to operate the positioning units in both open and closed-loop mode. The "Industrial Line" stages offer a repeatability of 50 nm for travel ranges of up to 50 mm (the positioner design can be customized for significantly larger travel ranges).

State of the art interfacing such as USB, TCP/IP and EPICS via Ethernet, TTL and AquadB triggers, dll and LabVIEWTM enable the implementation of the positioning units into almost any application.

All "Industrial Line" positioners are manufactured from aluminum and dedicated for the operation at ambient conditions. For use in high-vacuum and UHV conditions all models can be modified in stainless-steel versions including corresponding cables, connectors and feedthroughs. Integrated cross-roller bearings guarantee maximum load capacity - up to 20 kg depending on type and size. Angular travel errors are reduced to an absolute minimum of only 0.1 mrad (pitch, yaw, and roll) and emphasize the universal applicability of the "Industrial Line" product portfolio.
