March 26, 2019 – The AU200-100x100-SC (Solid Core) Stage is the addition to the expanding line of precision XY stages from OES (Optimal-Engineering Systems, Inc.) The linear travel of the X and Y axes is 100mm x 100mm (3.937 in. x 3.937 in.) and the resolution of the X and Y axes is 20microns(non-micro-step) or 1 micron(20 micro-steps per step motor driver in use), the typical repeatability is 2microns, and the typical positional accuracy is 3 microns. An XY stage measuring 80 mm (3.150 in.) high with a footprint (including the motors) of 348 mm x 348 mm (13.701 in. x 13.701 in.), the stages are designed for: Alignment, assembly, laser drilling and machining, industrial, medical, testing, scanning, semiconductor handling, and optical applications.
Preloaded V-groove and crossed roller bearings and ground 4 mm per-turn lead screws having just 2 micronsof backlash, all contribute to the precision and stiffness of the AU200-100x100-SC Stage. The table of the XY stage measures 300 mm x 300 mm (11.811 in x 11.811 in.) and has a precision pattern of 21 drilled and threaded mounting holes to add special tooling or fixtures, and for integration into new and existing applications. Additional tooling plates are also available for custom and interchangeable applications.
The standard two-phase (1.8o) stepper motors have knobs for manual adjustments of each axis of the stage, however, the knobs can be replaced with incremental encoders for position verification. As an option, servo motors and compatible motion controllers are also available from OES, or the AU200-100x100-SC Stage can be ordered as a complete plug-and-play motion control system.
