With its low profile and outstanding performance characteristics, the ANT130-L is the ultimate solution for high-accuracy alignment, inspection, positioning, and measurement stations.
The linear motor drive also offers the advantage of higher speeds and accelerations. The compact yet powerful linear motor drives the ANT130-L direct-drive linear stage to a peak unloaded acceleration of 1g and a maximum velocity of 350 mm/s. The result is a high-accuracy device with outstanding throughput that significantly outperforms comparable high-accuracy screw-driven or other stages in its class.
For alignment applications, outstanding step-to-step resolution is critical. The ANT130-L linear stage meets this demand with an incremental step size of 1 nm when coupled with Aerotech drives and controls. The direct-drive linear motor allows the ANT130-L to make precise, small resolution steps. This is particularly important in alignment applications where step accuracy is critical.
Like all stages in the Aerotech product family, the ANT130-L positioning stage was designed for outstanding long-term performance. Both the linear motor and linear encoder are noncontact devices, which means they not only exhibit long-life but are totally maintenance free.
ANT130-L series stages are easily configured as XY assemblies. Options include precision orthogonality alignment to 5 arc seconds and vertical axis solutions.
Design Features of the ANT130-L Linear Positioning Stages Include:
Nanometer-level performance in a large travel format
High resolution (1 nm), repeatability (75 nm) and accuracy (250 nm)
In-position stability of <1 nm
Anti-creep crossed-roller bearings
High dynamic performance
Large selection - 8 models in travel and accuracy
