Air Bearing Stages target research and industrial markets.
Communication Systems & Equipment

Air Bearing Stages target research and industrial markets.

Frictionless for smooth, accurate motion, Air Bearing Systems include motorized linear and XY stages, rotary tables and stages, spindles, non-motorized components, and machining systems. As opposed to mechanical bearings, air-bearing positioners literally float on air, resulting in negligible hysteresis or reversal error, as well as optimal straightness, flatness, and velocity stability, which...
