Linear Motion Stage Features Sub-micron Positioning, 10 mm Clear Aperture, and High Acceleration!


Sunnyvale, CA, —Linear Motion – Equipment Solutions’ Series of VCS-10 Voice Coil Stages feature: Sub-micron positioning, high acceleration, digital and/or analog position sensors, and are available with a 10 mm clear aperture! These high acceleration stages (50 G’s no load), have 10 mm of linear motion and < 3 millisecond step response time. The customizable VCS-10 Series of linear position stages are ideal for high speed, high precision optical and laser focusing applications in: Medical, semiconductor inspection and manufacturing, scanning microscopy, and micro machining/manufacturing.

The VCS-1010D linear motion positioning stage (pictured) features a 10 mm clear aperture and a 1 μm resolution digital position sensor, with differential quadrature outputs and a center index pulse. The highly responsive, frictionless voice coil motor has been optimized to keep the moving mass as low as possible for the fastest response times, and it has the lowest electrical noise of any motor type. These compact 76 X 41 X 38 millimeter linear motion stages weigh only 255 grams and can be operated horizontally or vertically. Multiple sets of mounting holes allow for easy integration into new or existing applications.

These versatile VCS-10 linear positioning stages can be custom configured to meet the users requirements. As an example, is the custom VCS-1010D (pictured) with a 6mm lens and manual cross-axis adjustments.Equipment Solutions is a leading authority in the field of linear motion voice coil stages. Recognizing that exceptional performance can only be achieved through a system level approach, ESI also has extensive servo electronics expertise. Equipment Solutions motors and actuators are used in markets ranging from applications where our actuators delicately guide a laser beam over an eye as part of a vision enhancement procedure to military hardware that is battlefield certified, and everything in between.

With a time-to-market as short as four weeks, Equipment Solutions has maintained innovative, high quality products. Equipment Solutions, never loses sight of the value of listening very carefully to client input, nurturing a cooperative working relationship, understanding the big picture but never losing sight of the small details that describe it, and perhaps most importantly, following through with after delivery support.

Motion Control – Low Profile, High Precision Motorized Cross Roller Linear Stages

Motion Control  Motorized cross roller stage

 

OES Logo

Van Nuys, CA – Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) offers a high precision series of low cost, low profile motorized single axis positioning stages. The compact AQ110 Series of four cross roller linear stages have travel lengths of 15 mm (0.590 in), 30 mm (1.181 in), 50 mm (1.968 in), and 75 mm (2.952 in). Open loop repeatability of all stages is 0.5µ using a 10 mirco- steps-per-step Step Motor Driver or just 0.25µ using a 20 mirco-steps-per-step Step Motor Driver. Precision ground lead screws with just 2µ of backlash and high precision cross roller linear travel guides assures repeatability of 5µ, and positional accuracy of 10µ.

Table sizes and loads of these linear stages are: AQ110-15 is 65 mm x 65 mm (2.559 in x 2.559 in) and 10 kg (22 lbs), AQ110-30 is 90 mm x 90 mm (3.543 in x 3.543 in) and 15 kg (33 lbs), AQ110-50 is 90 mm x 110 mm (3.543 in x 4.331 in) and 15 kg (33 lbs), and the AQ110-75 is 90 mm x 110 mm (3.543 in x 4.331 in) and 20 kg (44 lbs). Each of the tables has a pattern of 16 threaded mounting holes for the addition of custom tooling and the base has drilled and countersunk holes, for easy integration into new and existing applications.

There is a knob on the back of the motor for manual adjustments or it can be replaced with an incremental encoder. Options include: Servo motors, encoders, limit switches, and fully compatible multi-axis motion controllers. Additionally, any of AQ110 series of linear positioning stages can be ordered as a complete plug-and-Play system.

If longer travels are required, please consult our team of linear motion specialists at OES or consider one of the other stages in the AQ series of motorized single axis stages at http://oesincorp.com/motorized-linear-stages/low-cost-series/index.htm.
