  • LPS-24 Positioners
May 2013
PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P., Air Bearings and Piezo Precision MotionRequest Info
AUBURN, Mass., May 29, 2013 — Physik Instrumente (PI) has introduced the LPS-24 series of miniaturized, piezo-motor-driven linear positioners for applications in precision optics, life sciences, medical design, biotechnology and nanotechnology.

The positioners are less than 1 in. wide and provide 15-mm travel range with closed-loop sensor resolution up to 2 nm. Their small dimensions make the positioners suitable for high-precision motion in confined spaces. A vacuum-rated version is also available.

The positioners are equipped with a piezo-walk motor providing thrust of 5 N (1 lb) and offer a choice of two linear encoders. The proprietary high-resolution piezoelectric linear motor drive offers several operating modes: long distance, high-dynamics nanostepping (<1-nm resolution) and constant-velocity mode. The self-clamping motor design provides long-term power-off position-hold capabilities without the need for a brake.

With the patented PIone linear encoder, resolution of 2 nm is standard, and a 0.5-nm version is available on request. A 150-nm resolution sensor is also available for lower precision requirements.

The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
