Vertical lifting platform

Vertical lifting platform | XVP

Maximum force, maximum precision

Discover our vertical lifting platform. This lifting platform can position payloads up to 2.5 kg with nanometer resolution. It is driven by two of our patented ultrasonic piezo motors, resulting in speed, smooth power delivery, high accuracy and a long lifetime.

To avoid confusion: There is no XY movement, but only a vertical displacement. The wedge moves in a out of the platform, but this is purely the internal mechanics.


Only 1 - 2 weeks lead time for most products.

Motorized vertical lifting platform| XVP

The Xeryon Vertical Platform (XVP) is a precise vertical stage driven by two ultrasonic piezo motors. This allows the stage to produce high forces without making sacrifices. Fast positionioning with nanometer resolution is still feasible.

The self-locking piezo motors hold the position of the stage when it is not powered. As a result, heat dissipation is considerably reduced. The integrated encoder has a resolution of 1.25 µm, 312 nm, 78 nm, 5nm or 1nm.
