Steinmeyer, Inc. announces a new precision, high performance X-Y stage. The compact KT-EDLM series consists of a 3-piece XY stage driven by synchronous ironless linear motors. Due to its high precision and outstanding dynamic performance this new stage is ideal for demanding positioning applications including:
– high speed inspection systems
– robotics assemblies
– dispensing systems
– gene chip production equipment.
The KT-EDLM stage is available in three sizes with travels of 110 x 110, 210 x 210 or 320 x 320 mm. Positioning accuracy is 3 microns per 100 mm travel with repeatability of +/- 0.5 microns. Straightness and flatness is 2 microns per 100 mm travel. The X and Y axes are driven by ironless electrodynamic linear motors with maximum acceleration of 7 m/s² to 10 m/s² and velocity of 400 mm/s to 600 mm/s. Options include an electromagnetic brake and an integrated controller (inside the stage). A separate motion controller is also available based on customer specifications.
