Ultranarrow Linear Stage from Steinmeyer is also Ultraprecise

The single-axis linear stage, the PA 30×40-SM01 from Steinmeyer Inc., Burlington, Mass. (www.steinmeyer.com), measures only 30-mm wide and 40-mm high and is fully enclosed. The stage can be from 25 to 150-mm long. Top speed is 50 mm/sec and load capacity is 100 N. Positioning repeatability is 1 micron.

This stage includes a preloaded 8-mm Steinmeyer ball screw, a Size 9 linear guideway, noncontact limit switches, and either a stepper motor or dc servomotor with encoder. A separate motion controller is optional.
