PI (Physik Instrumente) LP has released the M-692 series low-profile,
ultrasonic linear translation stages. Suitable for high-speed positioning tasks
with limited space, the closed-loop, linear motor-equipped micropositioning systems
are available in two standard versions: M-692.1U4, with 20-mm stroke, and M-692.2U4,
providing 90 mm. Both versions are equipped with integrated linear encoders for
backlash-free positioning. They can be arranged to form compact X-Y systems. Their
design is scalable and can be varied to provide travel ranges to 300 mm for original
equipment manufacturer quantities. Vacuum-compatible versions also are available.
Applications include biotechnology, micromanipulation, microscopy, automation, trsearch
and development, and quality assurance testing.
