New Precision Vertical Stage
BURLINGTON, MA, APRIL 4, 2006 --Steinmeyer, Inc. announced a new vertical positioning stage manufactured by its FMD division. The model HT 03-LM offers a travel of 3 mm with accuracy of 2 microns and repeatability of 20 nanometers, making it ideal for wafer positioning! A compact piezo linear motor is used to drive a 10:1 ratio wedge. Precision crossed roller bearings ensure smoothness of motion and high rigidity. Manufactured from stable aluminum alloy, the HT 03-LM weighs only 3.6 kg, but can handle loads up to 200 Newtons! Maximum speed is 25 mm/sec and position feedback is provided by a precision linear encoder with 0.1 um resolution. 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, Optical, Laser Systems and Robotics industries.
