Product overview

The PIglide stage with air bearing and voice coil drive offers high velocity and acceleration in a compact package.

The contactless components of the motion platform ensure the highest performance, quality, and lifetime.

Voice Coil Drive Technology

Voice coil motors are direct drives. In direct drives, the force of the drive element is transmitted directly to the load to be moved without the use of mechanical transmission elements such as coupling, drive screw, or gearhead. Voice coil drives consist of a permanent magnet and a winding body that are located in the air gap of the magnetic field. When current flows through the winding body, it moves in the magnetic field of the permanent magnet. Thanks to their low weight and friction-free drive principle, voice coil drives are particularly suitable for applications that require high dynamics and high velocities at limited travel ranges. High scan frequencies and precision positioning are also possible with these drives, because they are free of the effects of hysteresis.

Accessories and options

  • PIglide filter and air preparation kits
  • Single and multi-axis motion controller

Application fields

High-speed scanning, applications in manufacturing.

Thanks to the friction-free motion, no particles are formed, which makes PIglide stages ideal for cleanroom applications.
