Economical Fast Focus Scanning Systems for Microscopy and Metrology Applications

Packages with controller, software, and nano-focus scanner offer an excellent price-performance ratio - new from PI.

Auburn, MA - PI, a global leader in nanopositioning instrumentation, has extended its PIFOC series of microscopy products by two new economical nano-focus scanner packages for applications including surface metrology, super-resolution microscopy, light sheet microscopy, digital slide scanning, etc.

Two scanning ranges are currently available, the P-725.1CDE1S offers 100µm and the P-725.4CDE1S offers 400µm. The fast scanners are based on a closed-loop piezo flexure design with capacitive position feedback for high linearity, stability, and repeatability. A compact digital controller with software is included.

• Travel range: 100 or 400μm
• Settling time: ≤ 19 or ≤ 35ms
• Point repeatability, 10% step, 1 sigma: ≤ 20nm
• Large clear aperture with Ø 29mm
• Outstanding lifetime thanks to PICMA® piezo actuators
• Nanometer resolution due to capacitive sensors
• High guide accuracy due to zero-play flexure guides
• Controller included

Parvalux by maxon - AC or DC electric motors for conveyor systems?

The material handling industry uses conveyors to ensure that products are distributed effectively, AC or DC motors are chosen depending on the weight it needs to carry and the speed at which it needs to work. Learn which type of conveyor motor might be best for your application and how Parvalux can help you select a geared motor from stock or create a fully custom design.
