We design, develop, and manufacture low profile open xy-axis stages. Below is an example of a very compact assembly used in an imaging system. The challenge was to provide very smooth almost frictionless motion while electronic imaging sensors are acquiring vital sample data.
X travel = 25 mm with Customer Drive Technology
Y travel = 25 mm with Customer Drive Technology
This two axis stage is best suited for optical scanning systems for life science lab applications where very precise movement and high repeatability are required.
Can be made ready for vacuum and cleanroom environments.
The open stage provides a large port or window for direct optical viewing or laser beam passage.
This sub-assembly is made from precision components: crossed roller bearings , along with a few other custom machined parts.
For new designs customer specifications and requirements often provide a good starting point. Ultimately it's the first prototype builds that flush out additional requirements.
A few areas where you can find these products in use are listed below:
We reserved a portion of our production area exculsively for building prototypes. The lead engineer takes "hands-on" responsiblity for the first prototpye.
