Courtesy: Physik InstrumentePhysik Instrumente's (PI) L-406 compact linear stage is designed to provide high precision linear motion with minimized runout. It has applications in research and industrial applications, including bio-nanotechnology, microscopy, micromanipulation, inspection and metrology, beamline systems, and photonics instrumentation. This stage can handle payloads up to 22 lbs. The L-406 has travel ranges up to 4-in. and is designed to delivers accuracy and smooth motion with minimum incremental motion and repeatability down to 0.2 microns. A compact dc servo motor with gearhead is offered for high torques and resolution, while a 2-phase direct-drive stepper motor delivers higher velocity. Position feedback is provided by an integrated rotary encoder sensor mounted on the motor shaft. Noncontact, optical limit switches and reference point switches with direction sensing in the middle of the travel range simplify use in automation tasks.
