Griffin Motion Announces its Customizable, Quick-Ship, 150mm-Travel Precision XY Motion Platform
Compact & low profile, the CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform delivers high precision, accuracy, & repeatability ideal for factory automation & semiconductor processing applications
Apex, NC – Griffin Motion, a precision motion equipment manufacturer that designs and develops extremely precise modular and application-specific motion solutions that deliver accuracies from microns to nanometers, announces its customizable, quick-ship CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform. Ideal for use in microscopy, inspection, wafer processing, microtiter plate processing, laser marking, and optical positioning applications, this compact, low profile, ball-screw-drive stage exhibits extraordinary levels of orthogonality (10 arcsec) and parallelism, enabling 150mm of precise XY travel with 10µm linear accuracy and 1µm linear repeatability. Capable of operating in any orientation, the platform can also attain high linear velocities of up to 150mm/sec, which is useful for factory automation and semiconductor processing equipment.
Clean, compact, and low profile with an apertureless frame, the CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform features an integrated brushless servo motor directly coupled to zero backlash precision ground ball screws. The ball screws provide extremely smooth operation and velocity control, and this configuration allows for both tighter control loops and a smaller overall footprint than stages with motor couplings. Built for high duty cycles and long lifetime performance, the platform also features crossed roller bearings for smooth motion, a high resolution (0.1µm) linear SS scale encoder, optical limit switches with home, and optional brakes for added safety. Made in the USA, the precision XY motion platform measures 306mm (12.05”) x 358mm (14.10”) x 66mm (2.60”) with regard to length, width, and height.
“High precision, accuracy, and repeatability are given expectations in the motion equipment industry,” said Josh Houghton, chief operating officer, Griffin Motion. “So, although our motion platforms are proven to deliver exceptional performance, what really differentiates us from our competitors is our ability to quickly customize our stages to suit individual client specifications, such as mounting hole position, at an outstanding price/performance ratio.”
Standard lead-time for the CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform (CXY-C-150-BS-A-M-S-0-00) is four weeks, but expedited lead-times are available upon request.
