Precision-class XY stages are suitable for applications that require fast precision positioning. When switched off, the drive holds the stage stable, reducing energy consumption and heat generation.
Applications with a low duty cycle that are battery-powered or heat-sensitive benefit from these characteristics. The position of the axis is measured by an encoder and an optical reference switch allows reliable repeatable motion.
The piezomotor drive principle and its electrical operation are inexpensive and can be customized. For more product specifications, download the available datasheet.
