February 012011
February 1, 2011 - Q-Sys introduces long travel linear positioning stage for users looking for extended travel while maintaining good repeatability and dynamic performance. The single axis stage provides a full 2000mm travel within an overall length of less than 2500mm.

The combination of a rugged linear motor with optical encoder position feedback and high performance linear rail bearings ensures a low maintenance unit with very high reliability. Housed in an aluminium base, the stage also has a full length rigid waycover to prevent debris falling inside.

The straightforward construction delivers a stage with excellent performance at an extremely attractive price, with both performance and reliability advantages over belt driven and ballscrew units.
