Electron Microscope Positioning Actuators and Stages Catalog Published by PI
A new catalog on non-magnetic and high vacuum compatible actuators and stages for electron microscopy is available from piezo positioning systems market leader PI (Physik Instrumente).
Auburn, MA (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Vacuum Compatible and Non-Magnetic
The new catalog covers a variety of novel actuators, stages and scanning systems, mostly based on the piezo effect. These ceramic drives are vacuum compatible and can also be manufactured in non-magnetic versions, important for electron microscopy environments. Piezo flexure stages for fast scanning applications, piezo stick-slip motor drives for economical, compact long-range motion and ultrasonic-ceramic motors for high-speed motion are available. Piezo motors offer excellent long term stability because of their self-clamping properties without the need for a holding current.
Motion systems from simple actuators and XY positioners to complex 6 degree of freedom positioning platforms are available, all operated by digital motion controllers of the latest generation for nanometer precise control and rapid step & settle.
