With a 15mm construction height, the M-660 rotation stage from Physik Instrumente (PI) is said to be one of the slimmest micro-translation stages on the market.

A new version with a higher position resolution of 4urad now offers further application possibilities, for example in accurate inspection tasks.

The new M-660.45 stage has a clear aperture of 35mm in diameter.

Compact combinations with linear stages are possible.

The PILine piezomotor technology developed by PI ensures the compact construction height, as well as the velocity of up to two rotations per second.

The integrated U-164 PILine linear motors offer a maximum torque of up to 0.3Nm regardless of the direction of motion; the stage is designed for a maximum load of 1kg.

The PILine motors transmit the force directly onto the runner at the moving platform and thus keep the position stable, even when powered down.

Physik Instrumente

PI is a global manufacturer of high precision positioning systems and products based on piezo technology. Used in markets as diverse as biotechnology, semiconductor, defence and astronomy, PI’s products work to improve the speed and precision of many cutting edge processes. Actuators, sensors and positioning systems with either sub-micron or nanometre level precision; many customised for the end user, are included in the product range.

With manufacturing and subsidiary offices around the world and a workforce of more than 500 PI provides direct local support where it is needed. Products range from component level piezo ceramic assemblies to six axis hexapod positioning robots. PI manufactures its own piezo ceramic material including multilayer devices that incorporate its patented ceramic insulation technology. Lead free ceramic technology is now also included in the company’s product range. With the flexibility and continuity of supply offered by having control of piezo ceramic production comes security and speed of delivery for customers who rely on or are looking to move into this area of technology. PI’s piezo ultrasonic and step drive motor technologies offer unique performance including self-locking capability, high force or high speed and non-magnetic and vacuum compatibility.
