ALIO Motion Systems 6-D Nano Precision ™ 3 axis solution for OEM’s and manufacturers needing air bearing performance with lower cost mechanical bearing stages and packaged in a turnkey solution with advanced motion controllers is available for private labeling.ALIO’s metrology grade XY stage is the foundation for this exceptional three-axis alignment platform. ALIO’s unique design of the Z axis provides a completely linear based vertical solution with near air bearing performance. This Z stage with a high force linear motor, linear encoder, linear high-precision crossed roller bearings and integrated linear air counterbalance exceeds any mechanical based vertical axis on the market and some air bearing options. One major advantage to this unique solution allows for the customer’s payload to be mounted directly on the top of the stage in-line with the motor, encoder, bearings and counterbalance thus minimizing overhanging brackets thus greatly reducing potential Abbé errors. ALIO’s linear Z axis is 5 times to an order of magnitude more precise than old school z-wedge solutions and traditional linear stages mounted on end.
