Multi-Axis Piezo Flexure Nanopositioning Stages & High Speed Scanning Systems
Parallel Kinematics Stages | Piezo Actuators | Back to Introduction |  Examples of Custom Designs

PI is the global leader in piezo nanopositioning and scanning systems. PI offers the greatest variety of standard piezostage systems as well as custom tailored solutions. PI piezo stage positioners & scanners with frictionless flexure guidance are decidedly superior to positioners with conventional guiding systems in terms of resolution, reproducibility, straightness and flatness.
