Due to the nature of the solid state flexure and parallelogram construction, these stages can travel without any mechanical play in the x and z axes, and provide a much higher resolution than is possible with mechanical or electromechanical systems.
The PX and PZ series stages can be easily combined with xy and tilting piezoelectric modules to give positioning with all degrees of freedom.
The PX stages can be equipped with integrated measurement systems that compensate for hysteresis. Depending on the system configuration, they achieve very accurate repeatability in the low nanometer range.
Because of integrated pre-load, the elements are able to perform dynamic work.Therefore, they are well suited for scanning applications in optics, semiconductor, and molecular biological applications.
