September 22, 2015 - Dover Motion releases XMG Miniature Linear Stage with a high power direct drive motor that allows larger payloads and faster step and settle.
As a result, this product is extremely suitable for high throughput systems where a higher rate of acceleration is essential. In a 50 mm stroke stage, the MMG is capable of 14g acceleration. In the case of vertical applications, the XMG stages will self-support larger loads without any counterbalance due to the more powerful motor. The benefit is a simpler installation and lower costs for purchasing and adjusting extra components such as magnetic or air counterbalance hardware. This product is also useful for applications where excessive motor heat gain will negatively affect the working environment or positioning performance.
These features are advantageous for applications such as stepping or scanning motion within a microscope, which requires a stable velocity or consistent force to move and settle as fast as possible. The high power direct drive motor generates less heat for the same motion profile as compared to less powerful motors, resulting in more accurate motion.
