High precison linear stage positioning systems are essential for driving the progress in research and many high-tech industries. In addition to high accuracy linear tables, PI also offers a wide selection of rotation stages, and multi-axis positioning stages such as hexapods as well as innovative motorized piezoelectric nano-positioning and micro-positioning stages for motion control applications, and precision positioning stages for scientific and industrial applications.

Advantages: choice of drives (piezo linear motor, voice-coil linear motor, or DC-servo / stepper with ballscrew or leadscrew); choice of integration (integrated servo driver, integrated controller); piezo-upgrades.
