These 1.0 micron high resolution, low cost linear stages feature exceptionally long life without the need of adjustment, lubrication, or maintenance. The integration of a splined linear guide and leadscrew results in a torsionally stiff stage that can be operated in either a horizontal or vertical axis. These stages are ideal for pick-and-place, parts transfer, water jet cutting, laser cutting and laser etching, inspection, testing, packaging, and assembly applications. Designed for loads up to 100 lbs. and speeds to 30 in./sec., the stages can be specified in compound multi-axis configurations such as an X-Y-Z axis gantry robot.
