New Z-Stage – faster, more responsive with unbeatable control

Queensgate launches the 500µ Z-Stage at Photonics West in San Francisco.

The NPS-Z-500A is a piezo driven, flexure guided stage featuring Dual Sensor Technology which delivers a displacement of up to 500μm in the vertical axis with an unbeatable step and settle.

Dual Sensor Technology is a pioneering control technique which overcomes the limitations of traditional approaches to allow faster step responses, throughputs up to 3x faster than the industry standard, improved stability against payload changes and a dramatic increase in mechanical bandwidth.
