The products highlighted in the catalog are developed to move loads of 10 to 50 kg (22 to 110 lb) over distances up to 300 mm. Rotation stages provide rotation angles of 360 degrees. Achieving accuracy in the micron and sub-micron realm is not a trivial matter and stages with ballscrew/servo or stepper drives combinations can be superior to direct-drive motors when it’s necessary to achieve high holding force, torque or particularly for vertical positioning.
Linear and rotary stages are also available in compact sizes for easy installation into limited space.
