This stage integrates a linear encoder into each single-axis linear stepper motor axis to operate the linear stepper motor as a 2-phase brushless linear motor, when coupled with state-of-the-art motion control electronics package provided by H2W. This allows H2W’s stage to achieve speeds and accelerations previously unachievable with a linear stepper motor (up to 5 G’s). A linear stepper motor is mounted on a base plate as an "H" gantry with a single linear stepper motor top cross axis.
- Ability to run closed loop stepper motor
- High accuracy and repeatability
- Cable carriers to route payload cables
- Two axis of coordinated motion
