9 Axis Motion System
This system is developed for advanced measuring tasks. It is a nice example of combining standard LAB products with customized designs.
Air bearing axis and a rotary stage are combined to realize object manipulation in the µm-range over a volume of 2,0 x 1,0 x 0,8 m.
A customized XY-stage combines air bearings with a vacuum or preload realizing a large XY-stroke and very precise and straight motion. Inside this XY-stage, a standard LAB RT250S air bearing stage is integrated. On top of this stage, the LAB CT250B cross table is mounted with a standard slip ring assembly.
To realize a large and precise vertical travel, we developed a custom air bearing Z-stage. In combination with a precision air bearing design, a special preload system and a weight compensation system, very accurate vertical motion is realized.
A control cabinet that steers every motion axis and takes care of all synchronization allows easy integration into your specific application. Less critical motions make use of ball bearings.
