Physik Instrumente (PI) uses piezoceramic ultrasonic linear motors in many of its PILine positioning systems.

According to the company, this gives the stages a much lower profile and makes them faster than comparable systems with motor/spindle drives.

PI manufactures low-profile XY stages with a profile height of less than 30mm across the whole surface of the stage – there are no lead screw ducts or flanged motors.

A speed of 100mm/s can be achieved at a resolution of up to 0.1um.

Special-control algorithms and drive principles are necessary to achieve high speeds and fast positioning times.

The C-867.260 motion controller is designed for two-axis positioning systems with PILine motors.

It also provides additional performance characteristics for simple integration and rapid operation, such as USB, RS-232 and analogue interfaces, macro programming or programmable TTL I/Os for flexible automation.

The software package includes the user program PIMikromove, Labview drivers, DLLs and support of Linux operating systems.
