Two new high-precision Z-Axis Elevator Stages from Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES), The AZV9010 and the AZV9020, are Motorized Z-Axis Linear Positioning Stages featuring vertical travels of 10 mm and 20 mm respectively.
The vertical motion of each Z-Axis Stage is driven by an 8-mm diameter ball screw with a 1-mm lead, and guided by cross roller bearings. High resolutions of 0.1 micron or 0.05 microns with 10/20 micro-steps per step motor drive, and repeatability of +/- 0.5 microns makes these two Z-Axis Stages suitable for: microscopy, inspection, metrology, positioning, photonics, sampling, and laser drilling and machining.
Each stage has a 90 x 90 mm (3.543 x 3.543 in.) table with threaded holes for fixtures or tooling. Each stage also features a dynamic straightness of 5 microns and dynamic parallelism of 30 microns. The maximum z-axis travel speed is 5 mm/sec (0.196 in./sec) and load capacity is 5 kg (11.0 lb).
The AZV9010 and AZV9020 Z-Axis Stages are constructed of black-anodized aluminum alloy and weigh just 1.85 kg (4.978 lb), and 1.95 kg (4.299 lb). Each stage has a knob for manual adjustment, and the stages can be supplied plug-and-play with a motion controller.
