Motorized positioning stage for research and industrial applications
Physik Instrumente’s (PI) M-122 is a motorized positioning stage with a very small footprint of 60 x 86mm and a travel range of 25mm, and is designed for research and industrial applications including fiber alignment, metrology, quality assurance testing, photonics packaging, test equipment, and micromachining. The compact closed-loop positioning stage can handle payloads to 11 lbs, with velocity to 20mm/sec. The optical linear encoder provides 100 nanometers resolution and better linearity and repeatability compared to rotary encoder or stepper motor equipped positioners. Long service life and excellent guiding accuracy with minimal backlash are guaranteed by the preloaded ball-screw drive and precision crossed roller bearings with anti-creep cage assist. M-122 stages can also be combined to create compact XY and XYZ systems.
