ATS165 Series Hardcover, Linear Ball-Screw Stage Travels up to 600 mm, Speeds up to 300
mm/s,Side-seal design with hardcover,Low-cost; high performance,NEMA 23
motor flange mount,Long-life linear motion guide bearing system
The ATS165 is a rugged, value-driven linear stage from Aerotech that is ideal for applications requiring debris protection and medium travel, mid-tier positioning performance. It is similar in design to the ATS115 series, providing additional load carrying capability with larger bearings
and a wider cross-section.
The hardcover design provides protection from debris, and the robust aluminum
cover is hard-coated to provide a scratch-resistant surface. The side seals keep
dirt and particulates out of the stage and protect the bearing surfaces from
contamination. The vertical orientation of the seals easily deflects debris away
from the stage. Competitive top-seal designs can ingest debris in the seal,
resulting in the eventual failure and replacement of the sealing mechanism. The
tabletop can be outfitted with an optional brush assembly to remove any
particles that collect on the hardcover.
NEMA 23 Motor Support
The ATS165 has a NEMA 23 motor flange-mounting interface and can be ordered with
an Aerotech standard brushless, slotless rotary motor installed. The stage also
can be ordered without a motor so that third-party DC brush, brushless, or
stepper motors can be used.
The stage is equipped with a ground 5 mm/rev ball screw that provides 0.5 µm
resolution, and it can be outfitted with English and metric bolt-hole pattern
tabletops. A stage-mounted brake option is available to prevent back driving the
screw when power is removed from the servomotor with the stage in a vertical
orientation. A fold-back kit is also available to effectively reduce the overall
stage length for space-constrained applications.
The ATS165 linear stage
is available as part of Aerotech's Fast Delivery Service program, with a
shipment time under 10 days.
