Lastek introduces the compact new MPS-SV lift stages from Aerotech designed to deliver high performance elevation motion control for laboratory research and high reliability production processes.

Aerotech is a leading global supplier of positioning and motion control products for industry, government, science and research institutions. Its products provide critical performance for demanding applications requiring high precision and high-throughput motion control solutions.

The new Aerotech MPS-SV series is available in two sizes and offers a choice of DC servomotor with rotary encoder or stepper motor.

Featuring a precision-ground ball screw and preloaded crossed-roller bearings to provide smooth and accurate geometric performance, high accuracy and repeatability and 0.05 µm minimum incremental motion, the MPS-SV lift stages also offer a lead-screw drive option for more cost-sensitive applications. All drive train mechanics are designed for high reliability and extended service life.

MPS-SV stages are available with vacuum preparation to 10-6 Torr that includes a vacuum-rated connector. An optional mounting plate provides direct mounting to both English and metric optical breadboards.

A multitude of adapter brackets and mounting compatibility inherent in the entire MPS stage family allow easy assembly of multi-axis stage configurations.
