PI's Highly Dynamic XY Linear Motor Scanning Stage

Motion and precision positioning systems expert PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. introduces a new compact metrology XY stage – the L-731. The magnetic linear direct drive ensures high velocity and acceleration, ideal for inspection and microscopy.

High Travel Accuracy, Stability
With a travel range of 205mm square and solid velocity to 100mm/sec, the L-731 delivers high accuracy and smooth motion. Precision crossed roller bearings with anti-creep cage assist guarantee superior guiding accuracy (1.5µm straightness for loads up to 20kg).

An integrated optical reference encoder and limit switch provide further positioning control and accuracy for this compact stage with 5nm resolution. DC servo motor versions are available on request.
