The the KT-180-50 stage is an ultracompact X/Y system with 50-mm travel in either axis, integrated into a space of 180 X 180 X 32 mm (with both axes centered).

The the KT-180-50 stage is an ultracompact X/Y system with 50-mm travel in either axis, integrated into a space of 180 X 180 X 32 mm (with both axes centered). It is equipped with cross-roller linear bearings, backlash-free ball screws, limit switches, stepper motors, and a single connector. Everything is completely enclosed with no outside wiring or protruding motors. Its low profile makes it a candidate for simple manual stages in applications where height constraints prevent use of bulkier, conventional stages or stacked units. Preloaded ball screws and cross-roller bearings offer high stiffness, contributing to the 4-m flatness of motion over the 50 X 50-mm work envelope with a payload of 5 kg.
