New Precision Vertical Stage HT 16 - LM

BURLINGTON, MA, March 15, 2008 --Steinmeyer, Inc. announced a new vertical positioning stage manufactured by its FMD division. The model HT 16-LM offers a travel of 16 mm with resolution of 33 nanometers and accuracy of 2 microns, making it ideal for wafer positioning! A compact piezo linear motor is used to drive a 3:1 ratio wedge. Precision crossed roller bearings ensure smoothness of motion and high rigidity. Manufactured from stable aluminum alloy, the HT 16-LM weighs 5.5 kg, and can support loads up to 50 Newtons! Maximum speed is 20 mm/sec and position feedback is provided by a precision linear encoder with 0.1 um resolution. Electrical interface to the motor and encoder is via two subminiature D connectors located on one end. Extra cost options include preparation for high vacuum and clean room operation.

This stage is ideal for applications in the Semiconductor, Fiber Optic, Medical/Life Sciences, and Optical industries.
