Outstanding lifetime thanks to PICMA® piezo actuators

The patented PICMA® piezo actuators are all-ceramic insulated. This protects them against humidity and failure resulting from an increase in leakage current. PICMA® actuators offer an up to ten times longer lifetime than conventional polymer-insulated actuators. 100 billion cycles without a single failure are proven.

Subnanometer resolution with capacitive sensors

Capacitive sensors measure with subnanometer resolution without contacting. They guarantee excellent linearity of motion, long-term stability, and a bandwidth in the kHz range.

High guiding accuracy due to zero-play flexure guides

Flexure guides are free of maintenance, friction, and wear, and do not require lubrication. Their stiffness allows high load capacity and they are insensitive to shock and vibration. They are 100 % vacuum compatible and work in a wide temperature range.

Automatic configuration and fast component exchange

Mechanics and controllers can be combined as required and exchanged quickly. All servo and linearization parameters are stored in the ID chip of the Sub-D connector of the mechanics. The autocalibration function of the digital controllers uses this data each time the controller is switched on.

High dynamics multi-axis operation due to parallel kinematics

In a parallel-kinematic multi-axis system, all actuators act on a common platform. The minimum mass inertia and the identical design of all axes allow fast, dynamic, and nevertheless precision motion.

Suitable for sophisticated vacuum applications

All components used in the piezo systems are are excellently suited for use in vacuum. No lubricant or grease is necessary for operating. Polymer-free piezo systems allow particularly low outgas rates.
