Wide base translation stage launched

Written by: Paul Fanning | Published:

Aerotech has launched a wide base version of its ABL1500 air-bearing linear translation stage for high precision positioning of heavy and offset loads or as a base for X-Y systems where maximum support is essential.

The ABL1500WB has a nominal width of 400 mm and is available in four travel options from 200 mm to 500 mm. With a powerful dual linear motor drive and choice of standard precision or high accuracy linear encoders, the stage can support a direct load of 60 kg with submicron resolution and accuracy, and with speed/acceleration up to 2 m/sec and 2g.

The all-aluminium stage benefits from Aerotech's unique active air preload system for certified straightness/flatness of under +/- 2.0 microns for the 500 mm travel version (+/- 0.5 microns for the 200 mm version).
