Small-Scale Four-Axis Motion Subsystems

Description

Design Features

  • Compact positioning systems for a variety of applications
  • All axes are mounted and aligned to either a lightweight aluminum base or rigid granite base
  • Aluminum bases can include handles for lifting
  • Granite bases are best suited for higher performance needs as the extra mass in the material reduces the influences of external vibrations and allows for faster motions
  • Shown here are two four-axis positioning assemblies consisting of three linear stages and one rotary stage
  • Combined with an Aerotech motion controller for full-featured programming using various command languages based on user preference
