Optimal Engineering Systems announces new XZ-axis linear positioning stages for laser drilling and machining

Share this on social media:

OES (Optimal Engineering Systems) has added a series of 15 mm, 30 mm, 50 mm, and 75 mm Linear Motion Positioning Stages to its selection of precision motion control components. Each of these motorized XZ-Axis Linear Positioning Stages features 1 micron repeatability and 10 micron positional accuracy. Both the X-axis (horizontal axis) and the Z-axis (vertical axis) have the travel lengths of 15 mm, 30 mm, 50 mm, and 75 mm and longer to depending on application requirements.

The 1 mm per turn lead screws and crossed roller bearings are used in these black anodized stages. They are suitable for: Sampling, assembly, sorting, testing, laser drilling and machining, and positioning in lab and manufacturing environments.

The XZ-Axis linear stages are available with either stepper motors with knobs for manual adjustment which can be replaced with optical encoders for position verification. The stages are also available with servo motors and encoders for closed loop operation and higher operating speeds.

These XZ-Axis Motorized Linear Positioning Stages are compatible with the OES (Optimal Engineering Systems) line of motion controllers and are available as a plug-and-play system.
