Compact dimensions- great power

Area scans with speed and precision

(PresseBox) (Karlsruhe, ) The M-900KOPS positioning unit from Physik Instrumente (PI) carries out two-dimensional scans quickly and with a high degree of accuracy. External dimensions of 170 mm put this stage in the 'compact' league, but it has a 50 mm scanning range in both axes and a load capacity of up to 660 N. A DC direct drive with zero backlash provides a speedy 10 mm/s with 0.1 µm positioning resolution.

The stage has a plain design and is intended for integration, for highly accurate sample positioning in a white-light interferometer or large microscope, for example. PI can match the cover and base plate of the unit individually to the customer-specific installation requirements.

The tried and tested PC plug-in cards of the C-843 controller series and the Mercury(TM) stand-alone controller are available for a low-cost system combination; they are easy to network and provide a large number of functions for automation applications.

PI has been one of the leading players in the global market for micropositioning and nanopositioning technology for many years. And PI has been developing and manufacturing standard and OEM products with piezo or motor drives for 40 years. In addition to its three German factories, PI has eight subsidiaries and a total of 500 employees worldwide.
