XY Nanopositioning Stages / Piezo Positioners
The nanopositioning stages series XY is comprised of piezoelectric actuators integrated into flexure hinge systems. Therefore enabling piezosystem jena xy elements to work under dynamic conditions with nanometer accuracy. The piezo scanners achieve a travel range of up to 700 micrometers per axis. These piezo positioners can be equipped with integrated feedback control for long term stability and sub-nanometer accuracy. These 2D piezo scanners are well suited to move lenses, optics, and other large size components dynamically with an optimization for an extremely low settling time.

Solid state hinges in parallelogram construction provide parallel motion without mechanical play in the x and y direction. These construction principles result in a very high resolution which goes far beyond the resolution of mechanical and electromechanical positioning systems.
The XY nanopositioning stages or piezo scanners PXY series can be easily mounted to other positioning systems and can be equipped with measurement systems that overcome the effect of hysteresis.
Dynamic operation is possible. The elements are very well suited for solving scanning problems. In particular, the central hole can be helpful in optical applications.
The elements of the PXY series consist of actuators integrated in a housing with an internal lever transmission. The piezo stage is fixed to a base plate by 2 diagonal holes.
Components can be mounted on the top plate by two diagonal tapped holes and can be accurately located by using the precision holes. Since the lever transmission works in both directions, forces between housing and top plate need to be avoided, as they could damage the stage.
