Single Rail Positioning Stage comes with 1-micron resolution encoders.

Press Release Summary:

Single Rail Positioning Stage H-Gantry features two bottom parallel axes with one cross axis. Unit is integrated with recirculating linear ball bearing system, custom mounting holes and home positioning sensor. Product’s axis uses H2W’s brushless linear motors and comes with a stroke length of 25.67 in. H-Gantry is equipped with 90-degree right angle gussets and custom extrusion end plates. Positioning Stage’s axis can generate 6.2 lbs of continuous force and 18.7 lbs of peak force.

Original Press Release:

Single Rail Positioning Stage - H-Gantry

H2W Technologies' latest single rail positioning stage H-gantry design is an open frame XY positioning system. It has two bottom parallel axes with one cross axis connecting the two (H-gantry).

Each linear axis uses H2W's brushless linear motors (BLDM-B04), and each has a total stroke length of 25.67 in [652 mm]; can generate 6.2 lbs [27.8 N] of continuous force and 18.7 lbs [83.3 N] of peak force, or a combined 12.4 lbs [55.6 N] continuous force and 37.4 lbs [166.6 N] of peak force on the bottom axis. The non-contact 1-micron resolution encoders allow for precise positioning. The moving tables are guided by a precision recirculating linear ball bearing system. The linear axes are assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion, thus reducing the overall weight of the system. The top cross axis is mounted to the bottom parallel axis using rigid aluminum extrusions, 90-degree right angle gussets, and custom extrusion end plates. The system is mounted to a flat aluminum tooling plate base. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carriers. It has end-of-travel rubber bumper stops.

Additional options include, a home positioning sensor, end-of-travel-sensors, and custom mounting holes. Single extrusion length of up to 6 m long, allows for longer stroke applications.


  • Low system weight
  • Built using standard extrusion profiles
  • Cable carriers to route payload cables
  • Three axis of coordinated motion
