Nano Precision Cross Roller Linear Stage
The LSM series is an ultra high precision, compact single axis stage that integrates a slide guide, encoder, and Linear Shaft Motor. At the heart of the LSM stage is a coreless direct drive Linear Shaft Motor which provides zero cogging, higher resolution, higher speed, and greater continuous force than standard stepper motors and piezo servomotors.
The LSM stage is a moving magnet design which locates all cables and connectors in it's stationary base. The resulting absence of any moving cable is a clean and compact design that eliminates motion errors due to cable forces. The precision ground cross roller way bearing system provides high stiffness and super smooth motion in stroke lengths from 50mm to 300mm. The internal non-contact optical linear encoder is available in resolutions from 1 micron to 10 nanometers with digital output. The sub-micron encoder resolution results in a high accuracy stage which is laser tested for optimum performance.
Options include DI Water or Vacuum compatible, open frame, and custom configurations.
