Piezo Inertia Motors
Q-motion positioners are driven by tiny PIShift type piezo ceramic inertia motors. They provide several advantages over classical motors: smaller, lower energy consumption, nanometer resolution and self-locking, i.e. at the end of each move, the platform is locked into place with no drift and no current draw. This feature provides better stability and removes the need for a motor brake.

Precision positioning and alignment of compact opto-mechanical components both in research and OEM instrumentation. Fields of application include photonics, bio-technology, nanotechnology, precision-optics, life-sciences and medical design.
Compact Linear Positioners, Economical Open and Close-Loop Versions
Several options are available for the Q-521 and Q-522 stage series, from economical open-loop designs, to low-cost closed-loop versions and high-end feedback sensors providing 1nm resolution.
Vacuum compatible stages are also offered and a non-magnetic option is in preparation.
Compact Open-Loop Rotary Positioners
Q-614, Q-622 and Q-632 are the rotary stages currently available. They provide continous rotation range (<360°) with minimum incremental motion as small as 36 µrad.
