AUBURN, Mass., June 21, 2016 — Physik Instrumente LP has announced the N-565 linear stages with a width of 65 mm and length of 80 mm. The low-profile stages feature a fully integrated linear piezo motor. An integrated interferometric linear encoder can resolve to 20 pm and allows incremental motion below 1 nm. Due to the short signal period of 0.5 μm, the linearity error of PIOne encoders is less than 1 percent. PiezoWalk technology combines the technological advantages of piezo class resolution with long travel ranges. They offer subnanometer resolution, high forces and high stiffness. Crossed roller bearings provide straight and flat motion. Travel ranges of ½ , 1 and 2 in. are offered in 13, 26 or 52 mm.
