Scan XY40

The Scan XY40 piezoelectric actuating stage offers a travel range of 40 microns per axis. The nano-positioning piezo stage is mainly designed to fulfill requirements for 2D scanning applications.

The scanning stage can offer a resonant frequency of more than 800Hz per axis. The Scan XY40 is suited for nanometre-precise positioning of lightweight optic components such as mirror prisms or laser diodes. These applications include semiconductor technologies and electronics, and applications in measurement technologies and quality assurance, as well as microbiology.

The X- and Y-axis of the 2D piezo scanner can be controlled separately. The axes are positioned orthogonally to each other and the direction of motion is shown by small markings on the stage. The FEM optimised flexure hinge design provides the lowest settling time and superior trajectory accuracy. The Scan XY40 can be mounted by using the four mounting hole set up. For component assembling, the moving part offers four pieces and M2 threading holes with a 13 x 13mm pattern in the centre of the piezoelectric positioning stage.
