OES (Optimal Engineering Systems; Van Nuys, CA) offers ten high precision, low cost linear positioning stages that can be easily integrated into new and existing applications. Choosing the best slide for the application is easy. The five AQ120 and five AQ130 series of linear motorized stages are available in travel distances of: 50 mm (1.969 in.), 100 mm (3.937 in.), 150 mm (5.906 in.), 200 mm (7.874 in.) and 300 mm (11.811 in.). The compact, AQ120 series of linear stages features high precision steel linear ball bearings and hardened steel shafting and are designed for loads of 15 kg (33.1 lbs) for the AQ120-50 to 5 kg (11 lbs) for the AQ120-300. The AQ130 series of linear stages features high precision open steel linear ball bearings and supported hardened steel shafting and is designed for loads to 30 kg (66.1 lbs) for all travel lengths. Additional features include:
- A large table with a pattern of threaded mounting holes, and a precision low backlash (2µ) 4 mm per turn lead screw.
- A resolution of 2 microns per pulse using a 10 microsteps per step motor driver, or just 1 micron per pulse using a 20 microsteps per step motor driver.
- The ability to be easily be configured as XY stages, with a Z axis, or with a rotary, lift or goniometer stage.
- Availability with a servo motor and optical encoder, and compatibility with OES' line of motion controllers. Options also include: plug-in Availability as complete plug-and-play systems.
