DR stages work well as X axes in stacked multistage X,Y,Z applications for vision inspection, pick-andplace, robotics, assembly, packaging, parts transfer, testing and cleanrooms.
Supplied with motors commutated as either sinusoidally or trapezoidally with Hall effect sensors, the positioning stages can include options such as matching servo amplifiers and controllers and high-resolution non-contact glass or metal scale optical encoders or magnetic linear encoders with reference marks for homing.
A NEMA 23 stepper and a 100-W or 200-W servomotor with encoder are available motor options. Motors can mount on either right or left-hand sides, and a fail-safe brake can be added. Mounting configurations are X, Y, and Z axes and gantries.
