High dynamic planar air bearing with sub-micron precision.
New systems with high dynamics and modular design
The PL-series is our newest line of linear products. LAB Motion Systems’ planar product family has two axes that are both floating over the same base granite. Therefore the top axis air bearing is not floating over the lower axis, as it would be in a stacked setup, but directly over the base granite. Both axes can move independently from each other and there is no mechanical coupling between both axes. Major benefit is that the stiffness doubles and precision increases. The XY motion platform moves at high speeds and floats only microns above the precision granite base. With or without load it offers a dynamic, smooth and repeatable movement.
A combination of light aluminum and precision granite results in high dynamic motion with extreme positioning precision. Double ironless linear motors and absolute linear encoders add to the smooth vibrationless motion.
Our design engineers paid special attention during the design to build a modular system. This enables us to easily change the strokes, the size or add additional axes thus creating a custom made solution for you. A gimbal setup can be added optionally to the planar stage.
