PRO165 Mechanical-Bearing Ball-Screw Linear Stage

Description

Design Features

  • Nine models with travels from 50 mm to 600 mm
  • Speeds up to 300 mm/s
  • Side-seal design with hard-cover
  • Low-cost; high performance
  • NEMA 23 motor flange mount
  • Long-life linear motion guide bearing system
  • Part of the Fast Delivery Service (FDS) program

The PRO165 is a medium performance, entry-level linear stage from Aerotech. It is similar in design to the PRO115 series, providing additional load carrying capability with larger bearings and a wider cross-section.

Rugged Construction

The hard-cover design provides protection from debris. The robust aluminum cover is hard-coated providing 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. The tabletop can be outfitted with an optional brush assembly to remove any particles that collect on the hard cover. Competitive top-seal designs can ingest debris in the seal, resulting in the eventual failure and replacement of the sealing mechanism.

NEMA 23 Motor Support

The PRO165 has a NEMA 23 motor flange mounting interface and can be ordered with an Aerotech standard brushless, slotless, rotary motor installed. Alternatively, the stage can be ordered without a motor for the attachment of third-party DC brush, brushless or stepper motors.

Highly Configurable

The stage is equipped with a ground 5 mm/rev ball screw and 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.
