M-511.HD Long-Travel, High-Speed Nanopositioning Systems
The M-511.HD is based on the proven design of the M-5x1 precision micropositioning stage series, with an integrated, flexure-guided, piezo actuator added. The M-511.HD allows velocities to 125 mm/s with an encoder resolution of 2 nm and load capacity of 50 kg for horizontal operation.
The servo-control loops for both the motorized and the piezo drive use the same position sensor. The result is a motion system with hundreds of millimeters travel but with the precision of a piezo-based nanopositioner. The resolution and the positioning accuracy depend on the choice of the feedback sensor. PI hybrid systems currently use optical linear encoders with a resolution of 2 and 4 nm. Depending on the stage, a minimum incremental motion or a repeatability of 4 nm can be achieved over the entire travel range.
