Zaber offers the G-LSQ Gantry Systems with Controllers


Zaber’s G-LSQ series gantry systems are based on the robust and fast T-LSQ series linear stages. These systems offer a complete turn-key solution including 2 T-MCA controllers, power supplies, and all the accessories needed to operate the system. They are available pre-assembled on a custom breadboard, or as separate components, ready to be integrated into your own setup. The G-LSQ series gantries are designed for multi-axis applications where heavier loads require additional support or where access is required to the area under the system. A coupled leadscrew design provides high stiffness for quick and precise response. These gantries will support loads up to 18 kg and can move at speeds up to 330 mm/s.

Drop-in replacement actuator from Tolomatic improves coolant head positioning accuracy in gear-grinding machine


A powerful and compact Tolomatic RSM rod-style screw actuator is modified to more accurately position a heavy coolant head and improve productivity.

As the company that pioneered the development of the bevel gear used in vehicle differentials, Gleason Corporation demands that its latest automated gear grinding machines be in the forefront of efficient and high-quality gear production. One key to quality is making sure that the work piece is well lubricated and does not become overheated during the grinding process.

Self-locking, Non-Magnetic and Easy to Integrate: Piezo-Based Linear Drive for Automation Technology


Linear direct drives have advantages over rotating electric motors for rectilinear motions in automation technology because the latter always have to use a spindle to convert the driving force into translational motion. An often undesirable aspect of conventional linear motors is that they are not self-locking and thus require holding currents which are associated with heat dissipation, high energy consumption and “positional jitter”. Piezo-based linear drives offer a solution here.

T-LST High Load Linear Stages are Computer Controlled


Zaber's T-LST series products are computer controlled motorized linear stages with a variety of lead screw pitches and travels. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 48V power supply. A potentiometer knob at the end of the unit permits smooth manual control; turn it fully to get maximum speed. The stages connect to the RS-232 port of any computer and can be chained with up to 254 units per chain. They can also be chained with any other T-Series products. Convenient 6-pin mini din cables on the unit allow for direct interconnection between units in close proximity.

Aerotech VTS300 Vertical Translation Stage Positions Extreme Loads



  • Extreme load carrying capability (up to 450 kg) in a compact package
  • Resolution to 0.064 μm
  • Lead screw does not back-drive which allows "set and forget" operation
  • ±10 µm bi-directional repeatability and ±25 µm accuracy
  • Vacuum compatible

The Aerotech VTS300 vertical translation stage can position loads up to 450 kg (1000 lb) with ±25 µm accuracy in applications requiring a compact footprint with travels from 50 to 200 mm. Applications range from step and settle placement to high force generation. Multiple units can be combined for lift and tip/tilt motion to provide a flexible, high performance, multi-axis motion solution.

XY Shake Table by H2W Technologies to Simulate Earthquakes


The XY Shake Table was manufactured to simulate earthquakes. When coupled with earthquake simulation software (customer supplied) the stage will accurately simulate any earthquake.

Due to the high force capability of this stage, it may also be used in a pick and place environment where the payloads are heavy.
