motion control -oesVan Nuys, CA – — Motion Control – Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) has added five new profile single axis positioning stages to their AQ150 Series of linear stages. Available off-the-shelf in travel lengths of: 600 mm (23.622 in.), 700 mm (27.559 in.), 800 mm (31.496 in.), 900 mm (35.433 in.), and 1000 mm ( 39.370 in.), these stages are available with either a Two-Phase Stepper Motor or with a Three-Phase Brushless Motor with a Quadrature Incremental Optical Encoder.

Stepper Motor driven models feature a resolution of 2.1 micron (achieved with a 10 micro-steps per step stepper motor driver), additionally, the knob on the AQ150 Stepper Motor series (pictured) can be replaced with an optical encoder for position verification. For Closed Loop Operation, high precision, higher travel speeds, and greater throughput, the stepper motors are replaced with Three Phase Brushless Servo Motors and Quadrature Encoders.

The tables of each stage measures 150 mm x 150 mm (5.90 in. x 5.90 in.) and has a precision pattern of threaded holes for mounting fixtures or other tooling. Tthese high precision low profile rail stages have top and side rail covers. Featuring a 5 mm per turn, lead screw, these have a positional accuracy of 10 microns.

These low profile, aluminum and black anodized stages can handle loads to 50 kg (110.2 lbs.), and can also be ordered in an XY or XYZ configuration. These compact linear stages are easily integrated into new and existing systems and are available as complete plug-and-play systems including a single or multi axis controller.
