Three-axis nanopositioner handles up to 15-kg loads

JUNE 10, 2009--The TRITOR 340 CAP is a three-axis nanopositioner with a central aperture of 150 x 150 mm and offers an open-loop motion of 390 µm and a closed-loop motion of 280 µm.

JUNE 10, 2009--The TRITOR 340 CAP is a three-axis nanopositioner with a central aperture of 150 x 150 mm and offers an open-loop motion of 390 µm and a closed-loop motion of 280 µm. Creep and hysteresis can be compensated by the use of capacitive sensors in combination with closed-loop electronics. The positioner is appropriate for high-load applications as a result of the mechanical frame design, which handles loads up to 15 kg. A vacuum as well as a non-magnetic version is available per request.

PRESS RELEASE

New compact 3-axis nano positioner
TRITOR 340 CAP

piezosystem jena was the first to develop an XYZ piezo electric based nanopositioner. In this area we draw on our extensive experience in the production of three axis piezo systems.

Now, the successful TRITOR Series has been enhanced with the TRITOR 340 CAP. This element has a central aperture of 150x150 mm and offers an open loop motion of 390µm and a closed loop motion of 280 µm.

Due to the ferroelectric nature of piezo ceramics, specific material properties like creep and hysteresis are an issue. These natural properties can be compensated for with the use of capacitive sensors in combination with closed loop electronics from piezosystem jena. Using capacitive sensors, this system offers the highest performance of position stability, linearity, repeatability, and accuracy.

The TRITOR 340 Cap is well suited for high load applications as a result of the special mechanical frame design. Loads up to 15 kg can now be managed easily. A vacuum as well as a non-magnetic version is available per request.

With all these specifications the TRITOR 340 CAP is the best choice for nanopositioning and microscanning applications that require sub-nanometer accuracy, a large aperture, and the ability to perform under high loads.
