Mad City Labs, Inc is a leading manufacturer of flexure based nanopositioning systems capable of sub-nanometer positioning resolution. Our product line covers the entire spectrum of nanopositioning capabilities while maintaining a leadership role in multi-axis stages for high speed optical microscopy imaging.
products: MadMotor-UHV precision piezo motor

The MadMotor™-UHV is a precision, piezo motor driven, micropositioning system for high precision alignment over long travel ranges. The MadMotor™-UHV stages use our proprietary MadMotor™ piezo motor technology allowing travel up to 10mm per axis with high resolution and excellent repeatability. Optional eddy current sensors provide 500nm sensitivity over the entire travel range.

Leveraging Mad City Labs extensive experience in engineering and manufacturing ultra-high vacuum (UHV) instrumentation, the MadMotor™-UHV is vacuum compatible to 1 x 10-11 mbar. Our experienced engineering staff have carefully designed the MadMotor™-UHV stages to account for the rigorous requirements for UHV operation. Mad City Labs' practical experience with UHV instrumentation informs our choice of materials, with only the best materials that meet our practical and technical criteria making the grade. The MadMotor™-UHV stages have been designed to withstand the rigors of sample transfer that can often damage more delicate piezo motor designs. In addition, our MadMotor™-UHV stages are able to withstand extensive periods of baking with temperatures up to 150°C. As a result, the MadMotor™-UHV is a robust and reliable stage as required by UHV applications.

The MadMotor™-UHV includes the Mad-Drive™ which is a 1, 2, or 3 axis piezo motor driver with an integrated DSP and USB interface. The Mad-Drive™ can be programmed to perform complex motion functions via the MadMotor™ DLL interface (supplied). Unlike other piezo motors the MadMotor™ DLL allows the user to treat the MadMotor™-UHV as a simple stepper motor with variable step size and stepping distance. The Mad-Drive™ controller is LabVIEW compatible and the system is provided with LabVIEW motion control examples. Optional wireless joystick control is also available. The MadMotor™-UHVstages are designed for flange mount or freestanding configurations and are compatible with a variety of Mad City Labs vacuum nanopositioning systems. The MadMotor™-UHV can be customized for your application. Contact our engineering staff for more information.
