PI Releases Nanopositioning Catalog
Auburn, MA — PI (Physik Instrumente) has issued its 2009 hard-cover catalog entitled "Piezo Nano Positioning Inspirations 2009". According to the company, the 530-page publication is the most comprehensive reference book on the fundamentals of nanopositioning, piezo systems and micropositioning technology to date.

The new catalog contains 200+ product families — 30 percent of them new — with more than 1000 drawings, graphs, images and technical diagrams.

State-of-the-art products and technologies in the catalog include: parallel-kinematics nanopositioning/scanning; high-speed ultrasonic linear motors for automation; capacitive nanometrology sensor systems; NSOM scanning microscopy stages; ceramic-encapsulated piezo actuators; PiezoWalk piezo worm type linear motors for

bio/nanotechnology; miniature motors for autofocus cell phone type cameras; 6-axis hexapod micromotion robots; high-load, low-speed mirror alignment systems for astronomical telescopes; high-speed scanning and steering mirrors and mirror shifters; motorized precision actuators and stages for semiconductor applications; digital and analog nanopositioning motion controllers and piezo drivers; servo and stepper motor controllers; photonics alignment systems, and photometers.

In addition to the product descriptions and selection guides, extensive tutorials on piezo technology, the fundamentals of nanopositioning, micropositioning and nanometrology are included to aid users in selecting the system that best meets their needs.
