Motorized Stages

Motorized high precision stages for micropositioning and scanning

Our motorized stages are designed for the exact movement of objects and are ideal for all applications requiring high precision, high speed and compact installation dimensions at affordable prices.
Originally developed for our single cell and colony picking system, the ALS CellCelector™, our high-precision stages are characterized by precise and fast backlash-free movements delivering maximum repetitive accuracy.

Application fields

  • Precision positioning systems
  • Microscopic imaging and scanning
  • Measuring and inspection tables
  • Positioning of parts for part labeling and laser printing
  • Optical systems
  • Lab automation
  • Assembly technology
  • Custom-made positioning systems
high precision stage

Design

  • Three sizes A, B and C with numerous options
  • Drives with brushless DC Servo motors for dynamics and accuracy
  • Control via CANopen
  • Drive control with encoder feedback
  • Low backlash design of the drive for the highest positioning accuracy
  • Actuators insensitive to cleaning fluids
  • Power transmission by ball screws
  • Cross roller guides
  • Table made of black anodised aluminium to provide low weight and to avoid light reflections
  • 1.3505 bearing steel guides
  • Connection elements made of robust VA2
  • CE compliant design
