The P-611 NanoCube™ is PI's smallest, closed-loop, multi-axis Piezo-NanoPositioning system. Its 100 x 100 x 100 µm, XYZ positioning and scanning range comes in an extremely compact package of only 44x 44 x 44 mm. Equipped with a zero-stiction, zero-friction guiding system, the NanoCube™ provides motion with ultra-high resolution and settling times of only a few milliseconds. Open- and closed-loop versions are offered to suit your application.
Versatility NanoCubes™ can be easily combined with a variety of automated or manual PI micropositioning systems, from single-axis stages to 6-degree-of-freedom micromanipulators.
Photonics Alignment A special version is available for fiber alignment and photonics packaging (see link)
Working Principle P-611 NanoPositioners are equipped with low-voltage piezoelectric drives (0 to 100 V) integrated into a sophisticated flexure guiding system. The force exerted by the piezo drive pushes a multi-flexure parallelogram via an integrated motion amplifier. The wire-EDM-cut flexures are FEA modeled (finite element analysis) for zero stiction and zero friction, ultra-high resolution and exceptional guiding precision. Integrated strain gauge position feedback sensors provide nanometer-scale resolution in closed-loop operation (with PI control electronics).
