XY Air Bearing Stages deliver precise, vibration-free motion.

Equipped with fully preloaded air bearings, A-311 PIglide IS Series features frictionless motion, resulting in negligible hysteresis or reversal error and zero-wear of mechanical components. Due to air bearing’s surface averaging effect, pitch/yaw/roll and straightness/flatness are significantly better than with conventional mechanical bearings. Planar XY stages are suited forÂ- metrology,...
