Miniature Linear Stages Enable ‘Pick-and-Place’ Positioning
Mon, 06/30/2008 - 5:07am
Ball-screw driven miniature linear stages provide compact and reliable solutions for high-precision “pick-and-place” positioning applications. They are supplied as fully integrated “plug-and-play” units eliminating any need to inventory and sub-assemble disparate system components. These compact stages enable controlled linear movement exhibiting optimized reliability, precise positioning, increased accuracy, and quiet operation. They uniquely integrate drive and guidance mechanisms using standard SKF components. PICO stages are available in two sizes (60 and 80 mm) and five standard stroke lengths for each size.
