Linear Stage

Linear Stages by Aerotech, Inc
 

A linear stage or translation stage is a component of a precise motion system used to restrict an object to a single axis of motion. Combining as many as three-axis or x-y-z stages can offer six-axis movement.

Usage

Linear stages are now found in many industrial applications, including but not limited to:

  • Imaging
  • Instrumentation
  • Lab automation
  • Material Science
  • Micro-manufacturing
  • Photonics and optics
  • Robotics
  • Testing
  • Two sided part access

Applications

Examples of products relying upon linear stages are:

  • Laser beams steering in eye surgery
  • Mirror positioning in telescopes
  • Industrial instrumentation pointing
  • Equipment in vacuum environments
