Aerotech (Pittsburgh, PA) offers the ANT 130-5-V linear motor-driven wedge-style vertical lift stage that provides in-position stability for nanopositioning applications. It offers travel up to 5 mm and is a precision stage designed for standalone use, or it can be integrated with other stages for a multiaxis nanopositioning system. The stage utilizes directdrive technology, as well as anti-creep crossed-roller bearings. The direct-drive technology is non-cogging, non-contact, high-speed, and high-resolution. Applications include fiber alignment, optical delay element actuation, sensor testing, and scanning processes that require stable, repeatable motion. The stage has universal mounting and tabletop patterns for system integration.
