The compact open aperture HCDS-051-032-013-01-B1-30 and the HCDS-051-032-013-01-B1-01 Voice Coil Stages from Moticont have a footprint of just 2.000 in. (50.8 mm) wide by 5.000 in. (127.0 mm) long and feature positioning resolutions of 30 microns and just 1 micron respectively. These precision stages allow the user to select the level of precision needed for an application.
The 1 micron resolution HCDS-051-032-013-01-B1-01 Voice Coil Stage features cross roller linear bearings whereas the 30 micron HCDS-051-032-013-01-B1-30 Voice Coil Stage uses linear ball bearings. Each of these stages has a 0.97 in. (24.6 mm) range of motion with 6.3 lb (28.2 N) of continuous force and 20.0 lb (89.9 N) peak force. These brushless, clean, quiet, efficient, low inertia, high acceleration, zero cogging and high speed voice coil driven stages have a built-in home switch for accurate initialization. As the coil is fixed and the magnetic assembly moves, there are no moving electrical components to fail. Designed for closed-loop servo operation an integral quadrature optical encoder with differential outputs is included.
The stages’ 1.509 in. (38.3 mm) x 2.000 in. (50.8 mm) tables are equipped with four 8-32UNC-28 mounting holes. Pre-drilled and counter-bored mounting holes in the base of the stages and a plug -and-play wired connector allows for easy integration into new or existing applications. These black anodized voice coil stages with a 0.500 in. (12.7 mm) clear aperture are suitable for: Laser drilling and machining, optical focusing, testing, laser steering, mirror positioning, scanning, oscillation, switching, as well as precision applications in industrial, medical, metrology, and research fields.
The HCDS-051-032-013-01-B1-01 and HCDS-051-032-013-01-B1-30 Voice Coil Stages are also available in XY or XYZ configurations, and can also be ordered as a complete plug-and-play system with a controller.
