Air Bearings and Piezo Flexure Mechanisms Engineered to Advance Precision Motion Control

Many motion applications are perfectly well-served by traditional mechanical bearings; but there are cases when precision, angular repeatability, and geometric performance are critical and submicron bearing rumble cannot be tolerated. Air-bearing stages for long travel range applications and piezo flexure guided positioners for short travel applications can help in these situations. Providing convenience and performance for the OEM designer, packaged piezo actuators, based on a special form of electro-ceramics, are the gold standard when it comes to precision, speed, and force in a small package.
