Scanning Stage Device
May 2011piezosystem jena GmbHRequest Info
Piezosystem jena GmbH has introduced the VTR select feature for
use with its flat and ultrafast scanning stage, the PXY AP. For accurate scanning
applications, two-axis configurations are normally used: a fast axis with a long
motion range and a second axis performing small and precise steps on a line feed.
The VTR select feature makes it possible to combine various travel motions for different
axes. Variable travel range selections from 24 to 700 μm for each axis allow
adjustment of the nanopositioning system to a wide range of applications. Even under
full load, preselected positions can be reached in milliseconds with nanometer accuracy,
while the risk of overshooting is minimized. The technology is suited for high-speed
scanning and 3-D microscopy.
