SLC-1720 - Linear Piezo Stage

The SLC-1720 is the smallest nanometer precision linear stage in SmarAct's SLC-17 series. At 22 x 17 x 8.5 mm, it is the world's smallest closed-loop piezo stage with nanometer resolution and macroscopic travel range.

Please note that the downloadable documents for this linear piezo stage show the dimensions and specifications of a 1720 for atmospheric or HV environments, equipped with an S-position sensor. For technical drawings and detailed specifications of other variants, such as UHV compatible stages, stages with higher blocking force or other sensor options, please contact our sales team.
