Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) has introduced the XYR-300-400 Alignment Stage offering +/- 3-micron accuracy for industrial, medical, semiconductor, production, research, and laboratory applications. The XYR-300-400 Alignment Stage features +/- 15 mm of travel in the x and y axes and +/- 5 degrees of rotation (theta). It moves in xy-plane and rotates around the center of the xy-plane.
The XYR-300-400 Alignment Stage feature linear resolutions of the X and Y axis of 1 micron resolution with a 10 micro-steps per step motor driver and static parallelism of less than 0.05 mm. Two-phase stepper motors are standard; however, servo motors with quadrature optical encoders are also available as an option for greater resolution and repeatability. The 8 mm diameter and 2 mm per-turn precision ball screws and preloaded V-groove and crossed roller bearings add to the high precision and stiffness of this compact alignment stage.
The table of the stage is 300 x 300 mm and has threaded holes and a 110 x 110 mm opening for optics, cables, etc.; a solid top is available. The base plate is 400 x 400 mm, and the height of the alignment stage is just 98 mm.
The XYR-300-400 Alignment Stage is black anodized aluminum and is easy to integrate into new or existing systems. Compatible motion controllers are available from OES and the XYR-300-400 Alignment Stage can also be ordered as a complete plug-and-play system.
