Physik Instrumente Announce New PI miCos Range of Linear Microscopy Stage Positioners

Physik Instrumente LP (PI) announces the new PI miCos range of precision linear stage positioners.

More than 20 product families are available starting with miniature translation stages and positioning ranges of 40 mm to high load, linear translation stages for long travel ranges to 1 meter. These motorized precision positioners come in a large variety of standard and custom versions for any budget and application. They cover low-cost, open loop stages with stepper motors and, leadscrew drive to high-speed and high accuracy, models with linear encoders featuring up to 1 nanometer resolution.

Choice of Motors & Feedback Sensors, Clean Room, Vacuum

Most stages also come in vacuum-compatible and clean-room compatible versions. Customers can chose between rotary servo-motors, linear servo motors and stepper motors. Closed loop models are offered with optical high-resolution position feedback. In addition to single axis precision linear stages, the company designs and manufactures XY-positioning stages, precision Z-stages (elevation stages) and precision rotation stages.

Motion Controllers

A variety of motion controllers with USB and RS-232 interfacing is available to match the positioning mechanics and application requirements.

The PI miCos product line of precision linear stage positioners are suited to applications such as:

  • Semiconductor alignment
  • Biotechnology
  • Aerospace technology
  • Fiber-optic alignment
  • Microscopy
  • Optics research.
