M-042 Tip/Tilt Stage with Piezo Drive Option for Nanometer Precision

  • Superior Resolution & Repeatability to Goniometers
  • One- & Two-Axis Versions
  • Zero Backlash
  • Optional Piezo Drives for High-Resolution Tracking & Scanning
  • Manual and DC-Motor Drives
  • Compatible with Leading Industrial Motion Controllers

These one- and two-axis tip/tilt positioners are designed for small loads and feature resolution and repeatability superior to that of goniometric cradles. Spring preloading eliminates backlash. Versions with piezo translators allow ultra-high-resolution dynamic scanning and tracking.

PI is the leading manufacturer of high-accuracy hexapods. The company introduced its first hexapod 2 decades ago for a precision optical alignment system in an astronomical telescope and provides a large variety of different models with load capacity from 2 kg to more than 2,000 kg. PI piezo Hexapods and electro-mechanical Hexapods have many advantages over conventional multi-axis positioning systems and hydraulic positioners. They are smaller, offer much higher precision and most are self-locking. Available in many sizes and configurations.
