Affordable Stepper Motor Stage, Model M-406 from Physik Instrumente PI

The M-406 series of positioning stages is based on a stress-relieved aluminum base and crossed roller bearings for high stability, accuracy and load capacity. The carriage is driven by a choice of stepper motors and closed-loop servo motors via a precision backlash-compensated fine pitch leadscrew.

Auburn, MA (PRWEB) September 22, 2013

Precision motion control specialist PI (Physik Instrumente) LP, introduces a new stepper motor stage for tasks such as alignment, robotics, photonics, semiconductor test & metrology, and life science applications. Combined with the low-cost Mercury™ series motion controller, these stages form affordable, high-value, precision positioning systems.

Stress-Relieved Aluminum
The M-406 series of precision linear stages is based on a stress-relieved aluminum base and crossed roller bearings for high stability, accuracy and load capacity. The carriage is driven by a choice of stepper motors and closed-loop servo motors via a precision backlash-compensated fine pitch leadscrew.

Datasheet and Specifications:

Self-Locking to 50 N Force
The stage is self-locking at rest, without the need for a motor brake. Limit switches and noncontact direction-sensing reference point switches in the center of travel support automation applications.

Features & Advantages

  • 4” (100 mm) positioning range
  • 3.5 nm Encoder Resolution
  • 0.1 µm Step Size
  • Precision crossed roller bearings
  • Stepper motor and closed-loop servo motors
  • Direction-sensing home switch for faster referencing

Typical Applications
Research & Development, Quality Control, Semiconductor Test Equipment, Precision Automation, Metrology

Low Cost of Ownership
These motorized positioning stages are especially cost effective when combined with PI’s popular, networkable Mercury™ motion controller.
