Burleigh's Inchworm® Motor Systems provide nanometer resolution over hundreds of millimeters of travel, high stiffness, high speed, high stability, small size, and UHV and non-magnetic compatibility.

Since its invention in 1974, Burleigh's patented Inchworm motor has set the standard for high resolution long-range positioning. The Inchworm is a fundamentally solid-state device that uses PZT ceramic actuators to generate nanometer-scale positioning steps over hundreds of millimeters of travel. What's more, the Inchworm is made entirely from low outgassing and non-magnetic materials.

Burleigh also manufactures laser characterization instruments and surface topography products. All Burleigh products provide the inherent solid-state stability, low drift, and high resolution of PZT technology.

Goodfellow Services:

- The first meets the needs of those customers who want small quantities of our standard catalog products for immediate shipment.

- The second is for those who require larger quantities or further processing of our standard products or who need products that we are able to supply.

Goodfellow is reknown for having the most comprehensive catalog of metals and materials of any source in the world. It lists over 48,000 items, which are in stock and are available for immediate shipment worldwide. Specific details, including complete technical information, can be found in the Goodfellow Catalog on the Web or as a printed book or CD-ROM, either of which can be requested through one of our offices.

Although our catalog listings are comprehensive, there are occasions when our customers will require much larger quantities and/or materials supplied to a specification or to meet a specific need (for example, a catalog product that is machined, polished, or cut to a specific shape). Even if these are not listed in the catalog, we can often provide a competitive price for both larger and smaller quantities of metals and materials of all kinds.
