PI Releases New Vacuum Precision Motion and Positioning Solutions Catalog and Whitepaper

Vacuum and UHV applications in research and industry are increasing in importance as testing and manufacturing specifically require vacuum or cryogenic environments.

For decades, PI has provided stages and systems for vacuum levels from 10-3 mbar to 10-9 mbar that deliver reliable motion control for positioning and alignment. The newest catalog from PI - Precision Motion and Positioning Solutions for High Vacuum and UHV - demonstrates PI's expert design capabilities as most standard products are created with vacuum compatibility in mind, from linear and rotary stages to 6-axis hexapods.


"Throughout the worldwide research and development field, vacuum environments are used, from small epitaxy processes up to the large beamline facilities.", states Dr. Jürgen Gallus, technical engineer responsible for PI vacuum technology research and development. Dr. Gallus' whitepaper, "Motion and Positioning in Vacuum Environments", delves into the specific consideration that must be given, when designing a vacuum system, to operating speed, stage lifetime expectancy, use of lubricants and coatings, material selection, outbakeing temperatures for high and ultra-high vacuums, and more.

Standard and Custom
In addition to a large variety of standard piezoelectric and mechanical stages, PI can quickly modify existing product designs or provide a fully customized OEM part to fit the exact requirements of the application.
