Piezo Systems for Actuating
Many applications in microscopy, automation and mechatronics use piezo mechanical motion and nanopositioning solutions. The inverse piezoelectric effect is the main principle of the piezo actuation.
piezosystem jena is offering innovative and highly precise nanopositioning devices to customers all over the world. Our piezo actuators and piezo drives, nanopositioning solutions, piezo controller and motion control systems are used in micro- and nano positioning applications whenever highest precision and high dynamics are needed. In addition to a broad range of catalogue products, also customer specific developments are offered to provide optimized systems for certain applications.
Piezoelectric Elements - Key Features:
- Sub-nanometer precision in positioning
- Extreme reliability due to their material properties and design
- The piezo actuators develop forces of up to several thousand Newtons
- Precise positioning in the range of microseconds
- Piezo actuators can realize very high dynamics
Founded in 1991, piezosystem jena is one of the leading manufacturers of piezomechanic nanopositioning systems and corresponding electronics like Piezo driver and amplifier. Piezo Nanopositioning devices of piezosystem jena are capable of reaching subnanometer resolution.
The portfolio of piezo nanopositioners covers a wide range of different products:
- from basic piezo stacks to piezomechanic systems with magnification (via solid state hinges)
- from single axis systems to systems with up to five axes
- from standard products to complex and customized OEM solutions
To develop high precision nanopositioning stages, our engineers use a variety of state-of-the-art tools for 3D modeling and FEM simulation of e.g. the desired motion and dynamics, while optimizing the linearity of the system, the orthogonality of the movement or the parallelism of the connecting surfaces. Two major issues addressed throughout the whole development process are stability and reliability of both the nanopositioning stage and the related controller.
