These compact, low-profile linear motor stages exhibit strong levels of accuracy (15µm), repeatability (1µm), flatness (5µm), and straightness (5µm) with regard to travel, and attain high linear velocities up to 900mm/s. This makes them useful for factory automation and semiconductor processing equipment. Additional features of the LM3 Series 300mm-travel precision linear motion stages include ironless linear servomotors and recirculating ball linear ways, which enable smooth motion and velocity control. They also have hard coverings with side seals for harsh industrial applications and a high-resolution (0.1µm) linear SS scale encoder. Other features include optical limit switches with home and integrated cable management to simplify design. The series can also be stacked to create XY motion.
