Steinmeyer’s new XY stage is compact

December 19, 2007 — Steinmeyer, Inc. has announced a new high precision XY linear stage model KT 310 – 210 – DC. Manufactured from high strength anodized aluminum, the standard table promises travel of 200 mm in both axes with positioning accuracy of 5 µm (micrometer), straightness/flatness of 3 µm and repeatability of +/- 1µm.

With a sleek, low profile design, it has a square footprint of 310 x 310 mm, height of 80 mm and weighs only 11 kg. Features include: preloaded cross roller bearings, precision ground ball screws, limit switches, and integrated dc motors with rotary encoders.

With optional linear encoders, repeatability is +/- 0.1 µm.

Because motors, encoders and cabling are all located inside the table body, the result is very clean with no moving cables as the table travels. All motor, limit switch and encoder interface are via SUB-D connectors located in a single area. The stage is designed for semiconductor metrology, biomedical, miniature robotics, and laser industry applications.
