Design Features

  • High-performance in a cost-effective, economic package
  • Rugged mechanical design
  • Direct-drive linear motor for precision motion
  • Nine models with travels from 100 mm to 800 mm

Quality Mechanical Construction

A long-life recirculating linear guide bearing system and quality construction make the ECO225LM an attractive solution for applications where up-time is critical. Unlike low-cost competitive motion stages, the ECO225LM can be integrated into complex machines with the assurance it will perform at a high level and outlast other machine components.

Precision Motion Performance

ECO225LM series stages are optimized with high precision, noncontact linear encoders. Precision recirculating linear bearings, along with Aerotech’s machining and assembly craftsmanship, enable the best geometric performance per unit price on the market.

The precision noncontact encoders enable minimum incremental motion to 10 nm with micrometer-level repeatability. The optional HALAR factory calibration improves positioning accuracy to ±1.5 µm.

Direct-Drive Linear Motor

The ECO225LM comes standard with Aerotech’s field-proven linear motor technology. It is available with a high-performance linear-motor option for applications requiring higher force and acceleration motion profiles. In both cases the ironless forcer coil provides high force with zero cogging for super-smooth velocity and position control. This ironless design is ideal for applications requiring outstanding contour accuracy and smooth velocity profiling. As with all Aerotech linear motor stages, the linear motor has zero backlash, no windup, zero friction, and excellent dynamic responsiveness.

Design and Integration Flexibility

The ECO225LM is available in nine different models with travels ranging from 100 mm to 800 mm and speeds up to 2 m/s. Configurable cable management solutions are available for single and multi-axis systems as standard options.

The base mounting holes are accessible from the outside of the stage for easy mounting. Standard mounting holes for both English and metric optical tables are present in all travels. Tabletops are available with both English and metric mounting patterns. Tabletop hole patterns allow the direct attachment of several types of Aerotech rotary stages.

The ECO225LM stage is a flexible, yet cost-effective, linear motion stage with many options to fit the exact needs of the application. It is easily the best performing and most versatile linear stage per unit price that money can buy.

Integration (Required)

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.

Option Description
-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.
