Original Press Release:
New Compact-XY Stage
BURLINGTON, MA, December 17, 2007 --Steinmeyer, Inc. announced a new high precision XY linear stage model KT 310 - 210 - DC. Manufactured from high strength anodized aluminum, the standard table offers travel of 200 mm in both axes with positioning accuracy of 5 µm (micrometer), straightness/flatness of 3 µm and repeatability of +/- 1µm. With a sleek low profile design, it has a square footprint of 310 x 310 mm, height of 80 mm and weighs only 11 kg. Features include: preloaded cross roller bearings, precision ground ball screws, limit switches, and integrated dc motors with rotary encoders. With optional linear encoders, repeatability is +/- 0.1 µm.
Because motors, encoders and cabling are all located inside the table body, the result is very clean with no moving cables as the table travels. All motor, limit switch and encoder interface are via SUB-D connectors located in a single area. This stage is an excellent choice for semiconductor metrology, biomedical, miniature robotics and laser industry applications.
The Steinmeyer group is comprised of two manufacturing divisions located in Germany. August Steinmeyer GmbH & Co. KG (located in Albstadt) has been setting standards for high precision ball screws for over 40 years and prides itself on high quality, innovative designs to meet demanding customer requirements. Our Feinmess Dresden (FMD) division has been producing an extensive line of high precision positioning systems for well over 130 years.
