NanoX® technology explained

Conventional piezo based positioning systems use one piezo stack (actuator) for the motion of an axis. This ceramic stack is mounted between solid flexure joints to translate the forces generated by the stack. If these forces are higher than the internal preload, there is a risk of damaging the piezo stack. 

The NanoX® design by piezosystem jena intelligently solves this problem:

The motion along one axis is achieved by using two stacks. While one actuator moves in a certain direction, the other one is going the opposite way and back to its original position. The result is a higher stiffness of the whole piezo stage. A positioning system designed this way can bear higher forces and stacks are less likely to break.

piezosystem jena is offering a variety of stages using the NanoX® construction method. There are X and XY positioning systems with up to 1.1 N/µm stiffness and up to 900 µm motion range. The NanoX® stages are ideal for high speed laser scanning, vibration control, active damping and other applications that are in need of highly dynamic motion.

The series with NanoX® technology, the nanoX high speed piezo positioners, is well suited for the highest level in precision for nano positioning and micro positioning tasks. The piezo stages are ideally suited for high load application. The high speed piezo positioner NanoX 400 moves a load up to 10 kg still under dynamic conditions. These actuators are using a piezo stack technology which is called "bidirectional active manner". Means, two separate controlled piezo stack type actuators are used in every single piezo positioner. If the first piezo actuator is charged by a voltage signal, the second piezo actuator of the nano positioner is discharged. By using this unique technology the high speed piezo positioner generates setting and resetting forces. Thus enables the piezo stages to carry high loads also under dynamic conditions.

The NanoSXY series extends the NanoX® Productline with XY positioners.

The series NanoX piezo positioner is available in the standard nanoX design and in the slim casing NanoSX version. Furthermore, the scanning stages of the NanoSX series can be mounted together with other NanoSX stages (stack on top of each other) to get a long travel range nano motion system which easily can offer a travel range up to 1.6 mm; without compromising the accuracy in positioning of few nanometer.
