High-Speed and Compact—M-664 PILine® Translation Stages

Low profile and improved guiding accuracy make the M-664 a giant among the pigmies

Karlsruhe, (PresseBox) - Like all members of the PILine® family, the M-664 translation stage with linear encoder from PI (Physik Instrumente) features an extremely low profile. This high-speed translation stage is next-larger in the series of piezomotor-driven stages of which the M-663 is the smallest.

The M-664 uses two crossed roller bearings mounted on ground aluminum profiles for improved guiding accuracy.

The integrated P-664 PILine® linear motor can generate forces up to 6 N and maximum closed-loop velocities to 400 mm/s over a 25 mm travel range. Because ceramic motors provide high holding forces at rest, the M-664 with its integrated piezomotor offers extraordinary position stability without the heat generation characteristic of conventional linear motors.

The M-664 translation stage is ideal for tasks in the fields of biotechnology, microscopy and photonics packaging.
