In N-603 linear positioning stages, Physik Instrumente (PI) has replaced a conventional piezo actuator with a high-resolution piezo stepping drive of the NEXACT® series, which – theoretically – has an unlimited travel range.
Efficient and Unique – DuraAct Power Piezo Composite Patch Transducer with Multilayer Ceramics Uses d33 Effect
The new P-878 DuraAct Power piezo patch transducer from PI Ceramic uses an operating voltage of only -20 to 120 V; with this, it is the only one of its kind on the world market.
New, fast Z axis piezo scanner for inverted microscopes offers large, clear aperture for well plates and high positional stability
The nanopositioning system for high-resolution microscopy from PI (Physik Instrumente) is characterized by a large clear aperture of 160 mm × 110 mm, high positional stability, and rapid settling times.
PI (Physik Instrumente) Complements its PIMagTM Series with a Further Voice Coil Linear Actuator.
Norbert Ludwig, Managing Director for Sales and Marketing at Physik Instrumente (PI) GmbH has been appointed as further managing director at PI miCos GmbH.
