New Catalog: Nanometer-Precision Motion Systems with Magnetic Direct Drives & Air Bearings from PI

Optimum positioning and force regulation performance solutions based on technology developed and manufactured in-house.

PI (Physik Instrumente), a leader in motion control and nanometer precision positioning solutions, is releasing a new catalog of its magnetic direct drives and air bearing technology solutions, including actuators, linear stages, multi-axis gantry systems, and customized systems. Application-specific solutions include precision automation in optics and semiconductor manufacturing, assembly, and test equipment.

The PIMag® Magnetic Direct Drives, based on technology developed and manufactured in-house, deliver optimum performance via position and force regulation. Nanometer precision is achieved by closed-loop control with position feedback from absolute linear encoders or interferometers.  3-phase linear motors and voice coil drives provide fast acceleration, high scanning speeds, and extreme lifetime due to the zero-wear drive principle. Air bearings allow extremely uniform motion with constant velocity, extremely smooth positioning without rumble coupled in from mechanical bearings.

A family of motion controllers, along with robust software covers all aspects of application integration from easy setup to cross-platform use and high-speed communication.
