Moving the Nanoworld - Precision Motion Control down to Nanometers and below

POSTED 06/11/2019

PI motion systems are used in dynamics applications for example in digital image processing. Extended travel ranges can be achieved with a number of different piezo motor designs, e.g. PiezoWalk drives. Where highest resolution, dynamics and lifetime are prime requirements, such as for the semiconductor industry, the innovative NEXLINE piezo walking drives provide benefits.
