Air Bearings & Stages

Air bearing stages are used where vibration-free motion is required, velocity needs to be highly constant, and optimum angular repeatability is requested.

Air bearings avoid friction, wear, and backlash effects. PIglide linear, rotary and spherical bearings are precision components that can be integrated and motorized for applications in OEM, industrial, and research markets.
