BURLINGTON, MA — Steinmeyer, Inc. announced a new precision linear stage, the PA 30×40-SM01. This single axis system is ideal wherever there is a need for an extremely narrow positioning table. Typical uses include miniature robotics, pick and place devices, specimen handling for life sciences and scientific applications where precision positioning is required within a very narrow foot print. This compact, fully enclosed stage is only 30 mm wide and 40 mm high. Available travels range from 25 mm to 150 mm. Positioning repeatability is 1 micron, maximum speed is 50 mm/s and load capacity is 100 newton.
Included inside this precision assembly are a precision preloaded 8 mm diameter Steinmeyer ball screw, miniature size 9 linear guideway, non-contact limit switches and a choice of either stepper motor or DC servo motor with encoder. A separate motion controller is available as an option.
The Steinmeyer group is comprised of two manufacturing divisions located in Germany. August Steinmeyer GmbH & Co. KG (located in Albstadt) has been setting standards for high precision ball screws for over 40 years and prides itself on high quality, innovative designs to meet demanding customer requirements. Our Feinmess Dresden (FMD) division has been producing an extensive line of high precision positioning systems for well over 130 years.
