September 1, 2017 – OES (Optimal Engineering Systems) offers ten linear positioning stages that can be integrated into new and existing applications. The five AQ120 and five AQ130 series of linear motorized stages are available in travel distances of: 50 mm (1.969 in.), 100 mm (3.937 in.), 150 mm (5.906 in.), 200 mm (7.874 in.), and 300 mm (11.811 in.). The AQ120 series of linear stages features steel linear ball bearings and steel shafting and are designed for loads of 15 kg (33.1 lbs) for the AQ120-50 to 5 kg (11 lbs) for the AQ120-300. The AQ130 series of linear stages features open steel linear ball bearings and supported hardened steel shafting and is designed for loads to 30 kg (66.1 lbs) for all travel lengths.
Each of these black anodized slides features a large table with a pattern of threaded mounting holes, and a precision low backlash (2µ) 4 mm per turn lead screw. The resolution for all slides is 2 microns per pulse using a10 microsteps per step motor driver, or 1 micron per pulse using a 20 microsteps per step motor driver.
These stages can be configured as XY stages, with a Z axis, or with a rotary, lift, or goniometer stage. All stages are also available with a servo motor and optical encoder, and are compatible with OES' line of motion controllers. Options also include: plug-in motor driver / indexer, stepper motor with an optical encoder for position verification.
