Small, Precision PIMag® Linear Motor Stage With Magnetic Direct Drive: V-408
Source: PI (Physik Instrumente) LP
PI offers the V-408 PIMag® Linear Motor Stage with magnetic direct drive and an incremental linear encoder for direct position measurement, high-force 3-phase linear motor drives, and general automation applications. With high load capacity precision crossed roller elements and an anti-creep cage assist prevents roller creep, offers zero-wear, and makes the device capable of long life in high duty cycle industrial applications.
The V-408 high-force linear motor achieves velocities up to 1.5 m/sec, and provides 10 nanometers resolution. The stage also offers 20 nm minimum incremental motion and excellent geometric performance with 4 µm straightness and flatness. This series is able to keep costs at a minimum with 1’ and 2’ travel range models. Integration is facilitated by the compact dimensions with a low profile of only 25mm.
