XZ Positioning Stage Gantry is driven by brushless linear motor.
Press Release Summary:
February 27, 2014 - Respectively intended for high- and low- to medium-force applications, vertical axis dual rail stage (DRS) and horizontal axis single rail stage (SRS) are closed loop positioning systems driven by brushless linear motors that are guided by recirculating linear ball bearing blocks and rails. Each axis incorporates 1 micron resolution linear encoders, and dual shock absorbing dampers protect stage and payload. Respective strokes for horizontal and vertical axes are 13.8 in and 4 in.

XZ Brushless Linear Motor Positioning Stage
Press release date: February 24, 2014
H2W Technologies introduces a high acceleration, brushless linear motor driven, XZ positioning stage gantry for controlled dual axis motion profiles of customer supplied payloads. The vertical axis dual rail stage (DRS) is a closed loop positioning system that can be used for high force positioning applications. The horizontal axis single rail stage (SRS) is a closed loop positioning system that can be used for low to medium force positioning applications. The stages are driven by brushless linear motors, guided by precision recirculating linear ball bearing blocks and rails. Each axis incorporates 1 micron resolution linear encoders. Dual shock absorbing dampers are incorporated into the stage to protect the stage and payload in the event of power failure. The dual axis system can also be supplied with fully integrated electronics to operate the stage under synchronized dual axis motion control. Brushless linear motor driven positioning stage gantries are ideal for applications that precision controlled synchronized motion profiles of customer payloads.
The vertical axis has a 13.8 in [350.5 mm stroke; and generates 167 lbs [743 N of force at 100% duty and 501 lbs [2224 N of force at 10% duty. The horizontal axis has a 4 in [101.6 mm stroke; and generates 50 lbs [222 N of force at 100% duty and 150 lbs [666 N of force at 10% duty.
- High force
- 2 axis motion control
- High acceleration
- Custom strokes and force configurations available
