Precision Linear Translation Stages The PI family (PI and PI miCos) offers an unusually broad line of high resolution linear positioning systems. From cost-effective stepper-motor stages to high-speed linear motor stages to industry-leading nanopositioning stages, our linear-positioning products are mission-critical in a host of industrial and research applications around the globe. Single-axis stages, vertical stages and integrated XY-stages are offered. Applications include semiconductor manufacturing, research and industrial biotech instrumentation, materials science, aerospace, beam line instrumentation and opto-mechanical equipment.
Product-line highlights include:
- Low-cost, industrial-class stepper-motor stages ideal for embedded OEM applications.
- Ultra-precision magnetic linear motor stages with recirculating-ball or crossed-roller bearings and integrated cable management, capable of speeds to 600mm/sec, travels to 500mm (20 inch) and resolutions to 1 nanometer;
- Cost-effective, direct-drive magnetic linear motor stages offering 100nm minimum incremental motion for tough budgetary situations;
- A range of novel ultra-compact piezomotor-driven stages with nanometer precision, long travel ranges and velocity to 400mm/sec speed;
The breadth and depth of our catalog linear-positioning stage offering together with extensive custom capabilities for specialized, industrial-class solutions means optimal performance and budget-friendly costs. Systems are also offered for challenging environments including vacuum, EUV, non-magnetic and cryogenic.
Z-Positioners / Elevation Stages / Vertical Linear Stages The PI family (PI and PI miCos) offers a range of innovative vertical motorized positioning stages. From cost-effective open-loop stepper-motor motor units, to high-performance lift stages with direct-reading linear encoders, to single- and multi-axis piezo nanopositioning solutions, our vertical-positioning products are mission-critical in a host of industrial and research applications around the world.
Applications include semiconductor manufacturing, research and industrial biotech instrumentation, robotics, aerospace and beam line instrumentation. The design of a precision mechanical vertical positioner differs significantly from the design of a linear translation stage in order to reduce tilt and wobble and provide excellent position stability. Customers benefit from PI miCos’ extensive design, manufacturing and assembly experience in both fields. The breadth and depth of our standard vertical-positioning equipment—together with extensive custom capabilities for specialized, industrial-class solutions—means optimal performance and budget-friendly costs. Our opto-mechanical equipment is also offered for challenging environments including vacuum, EUV, non-magnetic and cryogenic.
