Miniature linear positioners improve precision

The right tools are needed to ensure precise positioning of optical or mechanical components in applications where space is in short supply. Physik Instrumente’s new series of LPS-24 miniaturized piezo-motor-driven linear positions are less than one-inch wide, and provide 15mm travel range with closed-loop sensor resolution up to 2 nm. The motor provides 5 N of thrust and offers several operating modes including long-distance, high-dynamic nanostepping and constant velocity mode. The self-clamping motor provides long-term power-off position hold capabilities without the need for a brake. A vacuum-rated version is also available. PI (Physik Instrumente) GmbH & Co. KG
