- Compact, high-performance elevation stage
- Precision-ground ball screw or lead screw
- DC or stepper motor options
- High-vacuum capable
- Precision crossed-roller bearings
- Multi-axis configurations available with MPS linear and rotary stages
High-Accuracy ConstructionAll MPS-SV stages feature a precision-ground ball screw and preloaded crossed-roller bearings providing smooth and accurate geometric performance, exceptional accuracy and repeatability, and 0.05 µm minimum incremental motion capabilities. The MPS50SV is also offered with a lead-screw drive option for more cost-sensitive applications.
MPS-SV motor options include a DC servomotor with rotary encoder and a stepper motor. A precision-machined wedge design and lateral constraint system provide high stiffness and load capacity while at the same time providing proper constraint of lateral motions.
Vacuum and Mounting OptionsAs with all MPS-series stages, the MPS-SV stages are available in an optional vacuum preparation to 10-6 Torr that includes a vacuum-rated connector. An optional mounting plate provides direct mounting to both English and metric optical breadboard tables. The inherent mounting compatibility of all MPS stages allows for simple mounting in multi-axis arrangements.

Aerotech offers both standard and custom integration services to help you get your system fully operational as quickly as possible. The following standard integration options are available for this system. Please consult Aerotech if you are unsure what level of integration is required, or if you desire custom integration support with your system.
|-TAS||Integration - Test as system
Testing, integration, and documentation of a group of components as a complete system that will be used together (ex: drive, controller, and stage). This includes parameter file generation, system tuning, and documentation of the system configuration.
|-TAC||Integration - Test as components
Testing and integration of individual items as discrete components that ship together. This is typically used for spare parts, replacement parts, or items that will not be used together. These components may or may not be part of a larger system.
