multi-axis solution that uses direct drive linear motor technology and rotary-to-linear technology

The VCS20-20-03-MC-01-XYZ is a closed loop voice coil driven XYZ positioning stage. It is ideal for three axis positioning applications. It uses H2W voice coil motors NCC20-18-020-1A (XY Horizontal Axis) and NCC03-15-050-2X (Vertical Z-Axis). The XY Horizontal Axis motors have a 2.00" [50.8 mm] stroke; generate 2.0 lbs [8.9 N] of continuous force and 6.0 lbs [26.7 N] of peak force. The Vertical Z-Axis motor has a 0.25" [6.4 mm] stroke; generates 5.0 lbs [22.3 N] of continuous force and 15.0 lbs [66.8 N] of peak force. The 1.0-micron resolution encoder allows for precise positioning. It comes supplied with bearings that allow smooth and rigid motion. The motor coil is the moving part of the assembly in order to reduce the moving mass of the system. Power is supplied to the motor via a high flex, high reliability flat ribbon cable. The voice coil motors have been mounted in order to reduce the overall footprint and height of the system.

- Compact, small footprint positioning stage
- Light moving mass
- Three axes of coordinated motion
- Custom strokes, forces, and feedback resolution configurations available
