Original Press Release:

XY Alignment Stages Featuring High Resolution and High Repeatability are Available from OES!

Van Nuys, CA – New high resolution and high repeatability AU200-100x100 Alignment Stages have been released by Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES). The typical applications include: Alignment, inspection, assembly, laser drilling, machining, medical, industrial, semiconductor handling, sampling, testing, scanning, and optical applications in industrial, medical and research applications. Supplied with a standard 4 mm-per-turn ground lead screw or an optional 1 mm-per-turn ground lead screw, AU200-100x100 Alignment Stages are capable of 1 micron resolution and 2 micron repeatability.

Preloaded V-groove and crossed roller bearings contribute to the high precision and stiffness of the AU200-100x100 Alignment Stages. The footprint of these low profile (80mm) tables is 348mm x 348mm and they feature a large 188mm x 188mm open aperture. A precise pattern of threaded holes allows for the mounting of tooling and fixtures or an optional solid top plate. With easy access mounting holes, these XY stages are easily integrated into new or existing systems. 

Stepper Motor driven models feature a resolution of 1 micron (achieved with a 20 micro-steps-per-step stepper motor driver). The knobs on the AU200-100x100-01 Stepper Motor series (pictured) can be replaced with an optical encoder for position verification. For closed loop servo operation, high precision, higher travel speeds, and greater throughput, the AU200-100x100-02 series is supplied with Three Phase Brushless Servo Motors and Quadrature Encoders.

Compatible Motion Controllers and drivers are also available from OES and the AU200-100x100 alignment stages can be ordered as a complete plug-and-play system.
