The motorized precision positioner can be computer controlled for automation and precision assembly applications. The linear translation stage can handle high duty cycles and provides velocity of 100 mm/second. Precision recirculating ball bearings provide guiding precision in the 100 µrad range over the complete travel range. The low friction ball screw with a 2 mm thread pitch allows for maintenance free operation and the integrated PWM servo amplifier improves cost efficiency while simplifying installation and operation - no extra amplifier required. For example, the unit can be driven by the company's palm-top C-863 Mercury servo motion controller. An incremental optical rotary encoder with 4000 counts/rev controls the position, providing unidirectional repeatability of 0.5 µm. Non-contacting reference point and limit switches protect the mechanics from damage. The stage is 120 mm wide and 56 mm high. Its stress-relieved aluminum base ensures stability. This low-profile positioning stage is well suited for automation and precision motion control applications for science and industry.
