Low Profile, High Precision Stages

Feb. 28, 2018
Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc.'s linear stages provide travel lengths from 15 to 75 mm.

The compact AQ110 Series of four cross roller linear stages have travel lengths of 15, 30, 50, and 75 mm. Open loop repeatability of all stages is 0.5µ using a 10 micro-steps-per-step Step Motor Driver or just 0.25µ using a 20 mirco-steps-per-step Step Motor Driver.  Precision ground lead screws with just 2µ of backlash and high precision cross roller linear travel guides assures repeatability of 5µ, and positional accuracy of 10µ.


Table sizes and loads of these linear stages are: AQ110-15 is 65 x 65 mm and 10 kg, AQ110-30 is 90 x 90 mm and 15 kg, AQ110-50 is 90 x 110 mm and 15 kg, and the AQ110-75 is 90 x 110 mm and 20 kg.Each of the tables has a pattern of 16 threaded mounting holes for the addition of custom tooling and the base has drilled and countersunk holes, for easy integration into new and existing applications.


There is a knob on the back of the motor for manual adjustments or it can be replaced with an incremental encoder.Options include: Servo motors, encoders, limit switches, and fully compatible multi-axis motion controllers.Additionally, any of AQ110 series of linear positioning stages can be ordered as a complete plug-and-Play system.
