• piezosystems jena: Long Travel Range Actuator PX 1500

    csm Thumbnail PX 1500 c4766fa9c9

    Piezoelectric actuators and stages are known for their precision in the nanometer and sub-nanometer regime. However, such accuracy comes with some compromise: Strokes are usually in the µm range. For most applications, this is not a problem. Often, µm-strokes are even explicitly required. Here, customers want to harness the high stiffness and resonant frequencies. The higher the stroke translation of the ceramic stacks via a solid state hinge system, the lower the stiffness, the resonant frequency and the resolution. The maximum load capacity decreases as well. For quasi-static applications on the other hand, customers sometimes require a higher stroke than what is usual for piezo systems. Here, the piezosystems jena PX 1500 comes into play.

  • piezosystem jena: Ring Actuators R/RA

    Ringaktor RA 72dpi 250x220mm 04 288ffaeac1

    Ring actuators are often used in optical applications such as laser beam steering, fiber alignment or AFM scanning. In order to achieve optimal positioning results, these actuators have to fulfill a number of tough requirements. Especially stiffness and guidance accuracy are important criteria when it comes to operating the actuators in the sub-nm range and with high dynamics. The piezosystem jena ring actuator series R/RA was developed and designed by piezosystem jena to meet the high requirements of these applications.

    The R/RA series ring actuators offers motion of up to 50 µm. Their apertures of up to 14 mm are especially useful for optical applications because they allow for light to travel through. Stiffness is up to 330 N/µm which enables the user to operate the actuators with extremely high dynamics. This is an especially beneficial characteristic for a ring actuator, since they are often used in laser resonators.

  • piezosystem jena: MIPOS 600 SG OEM: New Objective Positioner with up to 600 µm travel range

    Objective piezo stage MIPOS 500SG 01 f0ece11ce7

    The MIPOS family of microscope objective positioners from piezosystem jena welcomes its newest member: the MIPOS 600 SG OEM. It can handle objectives with up to 40 mm in diameter and is ideally suited for applications like surface scanning, scan interferometry or even beam focusing in printing processes. 

    The MIPOS 600 SG OEM can travel up to 600 µm in open loop and up to 500 µm in closed loop operation. It has the longest travel range of all MIPOS models. The resolution is in the sub-nanometer-range which allows for very precise lens focusing. The MIPOS 600 SG is characterized by highly parallel motion and a high resonant frequency. This is possible thanks to a special parallelogram design by piezosystem jena and an integrated preload.

    The MIPOS 600 SG OEM is also available in an “upside down” version for inverse microscopy. A flex adapter lets you easily fix the MIPOS onto the microscope. There are also additional clamping screws for major microscope brands like Zeiss, Leica, Nikon and Olympus. For optimal resolution of the MIPOS 600 SG OEM we recommend using the NV40/1 amplifier.

  • piezosystem jena: Piezo Micrometer Screw Drive

    51b9b3ac05

    Hybrid element that combines the advantages of long travel of micrometer screws, with the nm-accuracy of a piezo stage

    These model MICI Piezo Micrometer Screw Drive elements from piezosystem jena were originally developed for quality control applications in the optics industry. They consist of a piezoelectric actuator in combination with a micrometer screw drive. The user can first adjust the coarse position of the actuator with a micrometer screw, and then fine tune it with the piezo stage itself. This improves the accuracy and reproducibility of the linear stage significantly.

    Long travels up to tens of mm, depending on the used micrometer screw and sub-nm resolution can be reached while simultaneously moving high loads up to 20 kg with the MICI 80. This is due to its very robust construction.

    So these piezo stages are perfectly suited for high precision adjustment of linear positioners. Based on its sophisticated solid state flexure hinge technology the MICI seriesoffers motion without mechanical play. Also these stages can be driven at high frequencies.

    The MICI fits in applications like improvement of resolution of linear stages, quality control, automation, fine adjustment of optical components and micro-assembly. You have a choice of 4 models compatible with the micrometer drives of Mitutoyo, Newport or Qioptic.

  • Piezoelectrical shaker for vibration excitation with frequencies up to 100 kHz from piezosystem jena

    piezosystems Jena

    The use of piezo shakers for vibration excitation has many advantages over conventional methods. Piezo shakers have a higher force potential as a result of their stiffness and their ability to operate at exceedingly higher frequencies. Due to their high power density they can be produced in compact sizes. These small elements can be used for modal analysis of mechanical structures. Massive piezo shakers with a seismic mass can modulate forces up to double-digit Kilonewtons.

  • Piezosystems Jena: Collimators for X-Ray techniques

    piezosystem Jena: collimators for Xray technique

    piezosystem jena have announced a new piezo based collimator system for X-Ray techniques.

    Current techniques in X-Ray microscopy, crystallography and small angle x-ray scattering require extremely well-collimated beams. In order to achieve the best signal to noise ratio in an x-ray system, the aperture size should be as closely matched as possible to the sample size. Most X-ray systems use a pinhole aperture that has been drilled or laser ablated from a tungsten or tantalum disk of material. In practice this means that for every new sample size, the pinhole should be removed and a new size inserted.

    A solution was developed in cooperation with Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.Based on two piezo driven slit sy stems of the series PZS 4 (part number: O-101-xx), a collimator for X-Ray techniques was made. The PZS stages are mounted of 90° in respect to each other. Because of the high resolution piezo element, the slit edges can be adjusted precisely to the required size. With a resolution of <8 nm the system is the most accurate variable aperture system commercially available. The open architecture of the PZS slit system design allows for easy integration into a variety of X-Ray systems. A V-clamp holder allows the customer to add his own or our accessories. The entire system can be made vacuum compatible.
