  ATF2 is a low energy (1.3GeV) prototype of the final focus system for ILC and CLIC linear collider projects. A major goal of ATF2 is to demonstrate the ability to stabilise the beam position at the interaction point, where the beam can be focused down to about 35 nm. For this purpose, a set of new Beam Position Monitors (BPM) has been designed, with an expected resolution of about 2 nm. These BPMs must be very well aligned with respect to the beam, at the few micron level, to fully exploit their fine resolution. In this paper, the mechanical positioning system which has been developed to enable such a precise alignment is presented. It is based on a set of eight piezo actuators with nanometer range displacement resolution, mounted in a new specially made vacuum chamber. Due to the expected resolution of the piezo actuators, this system also brings a new functionality, the possibility to calibrate the BPMs by mechanically scanning the beam.
