Aerotech introduces VTS300 vertical translation stage
Design and Construction Features
The VTS300 series incorporates the highest quality components to provide superior positioning performance over a long service life. From the special high-stiffness aluminum-alloy base and table, to pre-loaded angular contact ball-bearings that support the 0.1 inch/rev lead-screw, each component of the VTS300 was chosen for use in applications requiring precision motion with extremely high loads. Linear motion guide bearings give excellent payload capability and long life, even with heavy offset loads, as well as outstanding accuracy, flatness, and straightness over the full travel range.
VTS300 series stages are offered with matched stepping or NEMA 23 or 34 brushless servomotors that drive a high capacity 90° gearbox. Motors can be left-, right-, or rear-oriented.
Options Include Adjustable Travel and Vacuum Preparation for 10-6 torr
In addition to movable limit switches to adjust travel range, vacuum preparation is available for operation in vacuum chambers from 10-3 to 10-6 torr.
