For applications in microassembly, alignment of optical components, sample manipulation or automated test systems, positioning systems are often required that not only work exactly, but also require as little installation space as possible.
Miniature linear stage for microassembly and sample manipulation: The L-402 with a narrow size of only 22-5 mm can move heavy loads of up to 1 kg smoothly and exactly. (Source: PI)
With the L-402, PI (Physik Instrumente) now has a miniature linear stage in its range with a narrow size of only 22.5 mm that makes it possible to easily integrate into even the most confined installation space. On top of that, the inexpensive precision stage can also move heavy loads up to 1 kg smoothly and with a repeatability of up to 0.5 μm. The maximum travel range is 13 mm, the highest velocity is 5 mm/s. Force-guided crossed roller bearings ensure high guiding accuracy and a long lifetime. The miniature linear stage can be driven with either a DC or stepper motor. Versions with backlash-compensated preloaded ball screws are available on request; the same applies to vacuum versions to 10-6 hPa. If required, it is possible to combine several miniature linear stages to XY and XYZ stacks without using adapter plates.
