A new generation of linear translation stages from Nutec Components (www.nutec1.com) suits almost any positioning applications. Featuring high value cost effective designs, the stages come with three screw drives as well as ten different travel lengths that range between 50 mm and 500 mm. Its compact envelope measures 50 mm x 100 mm and has bottom tapped holes and easily accessible external mounting holes, which provide users with various installation options.
Its optional Toe Clamps allows for quick and easy mounting during installation. Providing moment loading capability in all directions, its preloaded recirculating precision guide rails also offer a firm platform with support geometry for outstanding trajectory.
Available screw drive options include leadscrew and polymer nut, recirculating ballscrew drive, and rolling motion only roller leadscrew. The stage can cover precision grades across the entire spectrum, with its standard variant ready for a size #23, #17 NEMA frame motor and other optional custom motor interfaces, including both stepper and servo motors. Its three LED sensors for limit and home sensing are interconnected with a DB connector at the rear bulkhead.
Offered in black or stainless steel finish, the three-sided cover of the stage serves as a protective device with a labyrinth seal for harsh, normal, vacuum or clean room environments. In addition, the auxiliary accessories can be fitted on top of the stage’s external T-Slot groove.
The stages are ideally suited for use in various applications such as in bio-medical production processes, semi-conductor fabrication and metrology, general automation equipment, optical testing, laser machine platforms, laboratory and R&D, assembly, metrology, life sciences equipment and micromachining.
