BURLINGTON, MA -Automation -Steinmeyer, Inc. announced another addition to its extensive family of linear positioning stages. The new PMT-160-NM Series of stages. These are high precision linear stage with 160mm width and driven by modern piezo technology. The linear stages of the PMT series are optimized especially for use in the metrology world. Outstanding low deviations from straightness and flatness as well as high system accuracies characterize these stages. In the design of the PMT series we paid particular attention to flexibility. For an optimum motion system solution, controllers are offered to meet the sophisticated application criteria. The FMC series controllers are available as table-top, DIN-rail mount or 19″ rack versions for industrial applications.
There are 7 models in this series. Travels range from 50mm to 250mm, unidirection repeatability is as low as +/- 0.3 µm, accuracy +/- 1.5 µm, and resolution is +/- 0.1µm. The maximum speed of all in this series is 250 mm/sec. and 2 acceleration is 2 m/s2.
