Lastek announces the release of a new compact, high performance linear positioning stage by Aerotech, a leading global supplier of positioning and motion control products.
The new Aerotech MPS75SLE linear positioning stage is designed for production and research applications in optics, surface metrology, general purpose high-precision alignment, semiconductor manufacturing, electronics, test and inspection, laser processing, metals inspection, laser micro-machining, microscopy, medical devices, diamond cutting and packaging among many more.
The precision ground, preloaded ball screw and linear encoder in the Aerotech MPS75SLE provide excellent accuracy, repeatability and positioning resolution capability to 25 nm. The anti-creep crossed-roller bearings ensure smooth travel and high-load capacity in a compact package.
Key features of the Aerotech MPS75SLE linear positioning stage include a low thermal expansion (3.3 ppm/°C) precision glass scale assuring high accuracy and repeatable positioning over long periods of time; motor options including a DC servomotor with a high-resolution rotary encoder or a stepper motor; optional bellows way covers available for applications at risk of contamination; and a wide range of adapter brackets for mounting compatibility across Aerotech’s entire MPS family of stages, allowing users to assemble multi-axis configurations with other linear and rotary stages.
