Dover Motion's SmartStage XY

SmartStage XY is an Integrated Direct-Drive Solution

July 29, 2021
Dover Motion’s new platform can be modified and optimized for specific customer needs.

The SmartStage XY platform combines the precise direct-drive motion of two axes (X and Y) with all of the motion control components built inside of the stage. The integrated components include controllers, amplifiers, encoders, I/O and three communication options. The resulting SmartStage XY platform has two axes of motion with only a single stationary cable exiting the unit.

Available in four common travels (50, 100, 150 and 200 mm), each stage can be configured to match the mechanical and sample size needs of an instrument or microscope. As a result, the linear motor based SmartStage XY allows the motion and controls subsystem volume to decrease by up to 400%.

For product release and launch, the SmartStage XY can be modified and optimized for specific customer needs. As a result, the configurable SmartStage XY platform decreases product design time, enables on-time instrument product launch and is a cost-effective solution for production volumes.
