April 5, 2018 - The ECO linear stage series builds upon Aerotech’s tradition of producing motion designs. The ECO stages are designed for applications where = motion performance is needed.
The ECO-LM series direct-drive linear motor stages are optimized with noncontact linear encoders. The precision noncontact encoders enable incremental motion to 10 nm with micrometer-level repeatability. The optional HALAR factory calibration improves positioning accuracy to ±1.5 µm. The ironless forcer coil provides force with zero cogging for velocity and position control, for applications requiring contour accuracy and svelocity profiling. ECO-LM stages are available in 17 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 ECO-SL series includes several NEMA 23 stepper motor and brushless servomotor options. The ECO-SL series is designed with standard features and options that make the design adaptable to specific applications. Several encoder options provide electrical resolutions ranging from 0.5 µm down to sub-nm. A holding brake can be added for vertical applications. A motor fold-back kit is available for space-constrained applications to reduce the overall stage length. ECO-SL stages are available in 27 different models with travels ranging from 50 mm to 800 mm and speeds up to 300 mm/s.
