OES Motorized AZ60 Elevator Stage Stage


OES Logo

Van Nuys, CA – — Motion Control Components – The AZ60-A Motorized Vertical Elevator Stage from Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) is a low profile, compact 183.7 mm x 80 mm x 38 mm x 42mm (raised), (7.232in x 3.150 in. x 1.496 x 1.654 in.) low cost, high resolution, wedge type, vertical elevator stage for applications requiring precise vertical positioning. The 60 mm x 95 mm (2.362 in. x 3.740 in.) drilled and tapped stage has a vertical travel of 4 mm (0. 157 In.). Six crossed roller guides and a precision ground 8 mm dia. 250 µm/turn lead ball screw provides smooth, straight (straightness to <5 µm) vertical motion, and parallelism (<20 µm to the mounting surface), and high resolutions to 1.25 µm (full step), 0.625 µm (1/2 step), and 0.125 µm (1/10 micro step), and repeatability to +/- 0.5 µm. Travel speeds are up to 2.5 mm/sec.

Applications for the AZ60-A elevator stage include: Photonic alignment, wafer inspection, precision vertical alignment, laser marking, optical positioning, testing, inspection, assembly, sampling, laser drilling and machining in a broad range of industrial, medical, semiconductor, and research facilities.

The AZ60 – A Elevator Stage is constructed of black-anodized aluminum alloy and weighs just 1.14 kg (2.51lbs). A powerful 35 mm NEMA 14 1.8O 2-phase stepper motor has a double ended shaft with a knob for manual adjustments. This knob may be replaced with a quadrature encoder for position verification. The non-cantilevered moving wedge elevator stage has a load capacity of 7 kg (15.43 lbs) without concern for loss of parallelism, and the base plate has easy to access holes for mounting.

Motion Control – Endless Torque… …The EC-i 52 DC Motor by Maxon Motor!

Maxon motion control ECi25 high torque DC brushless motors

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — Motion Control – With their optimized magnetic circuit and special rotor, the new brushless DC motors from maxon deliver an impressive amount of torque. The EC-i 52 drives are considered to be high quality at an attractive price.

There is an increasing demand for DC motors that are powerful and compact, especially in applications such as robotics and industrial automation. Swiss drive specialist, maxon motor, has developed a range of brushless DC motors that meet these special requirements: the EC-i High Torque. The latest addition to these drives is the largest and most powerful model, with a diameter of 52 millimeters and a continuous torque of up to 440 mNm.

Matching gearhead and controller also available

The housing and flange of the EC-i 52 High Torque are made of steel, which makes the motor extremely robust. It also does not heat up so quickly. It is manufactured in maxon’s plant in South Korea, which guarantees an excellent price/performance ratio. If required, the EC-i 52 brushless DC motor can be combined with an encoder, gearhead and controller from maxon. Check out our easy to use online shop at
