PIMag® voice coil motor
Voice coil motors are direct drives. In direct drives, the force of the drive element is transmitted directly to the load to be moved without the use of mechanical transmission elements such as coupling, drive screw, or gearhead. Voice coil drives consist of a permanent magnet and a winding body that are located in the air gap of the magnetic field. When current flows through the winding body, it moves in the magnetic field of the permanent magnet. Thanks to their low weight and friction-free drive principle, voice coil drives are particularly suitable for applications that require high dynamics and high velocities at limited travel ranges. High scan frequencies and precision positioning are also possible with these drives, because they are free of the effects of hysteresis.
PI develops proprietary magnetic motors if positioning systems need to achieve specific performance characteristics that cannot be reached by using drive components currently available on the market, for example, to achieve a high force density or a compact design. The motors developed by PI are identified by the PIMag® brand name.
Highly accurate position measuring with incremental linear encoder
Noncontact optical encoders measure the position directly at the platform with the greatest accuracy. Nonlinearity, mechanical play or elastic deformation have no influence on the measurement.
OEM drives in automation. For fast handling tasks and precision positioning in the micrometer range, micromanipulation. Testing of force-sensitive switches and surfaces.
