P-630: Ultra-Fast Piezo Nanopositioning Stage

Nanometer precision and motion control industry expert, PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P., delivers new solutions for very small position changes, coupled with speed, and high force in its P-630 nanopositioning stages. With design flexibility to meet custom assembly requirements and proven demonstrated reliability of many billions of cycles, PI piezo actuators are being utilized in research and industry microstructuring and scanning applications, precision positioning of optical elements, and micromachining.

The new P-630 X-axis nanopositioning stage, with a large clear 30mm diameter aperture, 0.1nm resolution, and a small footprint and low-profile, will ensure high accuracy and long life with travel ranges to 80µm. Equipped with an internal capacitive sensor that allows for precise, extremely stable motion, the stiff flexure design, with a natural frequency of >3 kHz, enables exceptional responsiveness and accuracy.

High Performance Electro-Ceramics Drive
PI’s proprietary PICMA piezo ceramics were successfully tested for 100 billion cycles by NASA/JPL which qualified them to be used in the Mars Rover’s instrumentation and testing equipment. Four years after Curiosity first landed on the red planet, PI products are still going strong at peak performance and reliability. PICMA technology integrates ceramic insulation that is polymer-free, humidity resistant, and able to tolerate a temperature range of -20 to 80 C. Read more here.
