H2W Technologies, Inc. (Santa Clarita, CA) released the SRS-004-006/004-003-01-XY. This low-profile XY single rail positioning stage uses brushless linear motors to generate a continuous/peak force of 6.2 lbs [27.8 N]/18.7 lbs [83.3 N] (bottom axis), 3.1 lbs [13.8 N]/9.4 lbs [41.8 N] (top axis), with a total stroke length of 4.3 in [109 mm] (bottom axis), 4.3 in [109 mm] (top axis). The top axis is able to directly mount to the moving bottom axis motor.
A low-profile system makes quick moves in both the X and Y axes and provides the solution for an automated assembly application. The brushless linear motor achieves high speeds and fits into a tight envelope. The optional breadboard offers the mounting flexibility to integrate a number of different tools into the same positioning stage.
The non-contact 1.0-micron resolution encoder allows for precise positioning. Rigid recirculating ball linear bearing provides for guidance and travel. It has end-of-travel bumper stops and a home positioning sensor, end-of-travel sensors and custom mounting holes on the moving table are available upon request.
