Helical 3D Tomography with Air Bearing Precesion Rotary and Linear Positioning Stages

POSTED 06/05/2019

3D Computerized Tomography (CT) and micro computed-tomography (micro-CT) systems are used to study the internal structures of a wide variety of material samples. PI’s air bearing systems group has built a number of motion systems that are used in research labs around the world. The system creates ultra-precise motion as it rotates and lifts a sample in a series of helical moves.
