APRIL 14, 2009--Available in travel lengths up to 72 in. (both X and Y axis), two-axis linear stepper motor gantries feature an open-loop accuracy of 0.001 in/ft (85 µm/m and repeatability of 0.0004 in. (10 µm). For closed-loop operation, an optional encoder is available. Full step resolution is 0.010 (250 µm); when microstepped, step size resolution can be as small as 0.00004 in. (1 µm). Continuous force on both X and Y axis is 6 lb. (27 N); peak force is 8 lb. (36 N). Complete packages including an indexer and driver for open-loop operation or controller and driver for closed-loop operation are available.

PRESS RELEASE

Two Axis Linear Stepper Motor Gantry Stage
Features 10 Micron Repeatability!

Valencia, CA -- Compact, low cost, two axis linear stepper motor gantries from H2W Technologies, Inc. offer low force, high speed, high repeatability, zero backlash, and long system life. Capable of very precise position, velocity, and acceleration control when integrated with a microstepping drive and indexer. These 2-axis gantries are ideal for precision applications such as: laser marking, medical testing equipment, inspection systems, pick and place, assembly, rapid prototyping, wire bonding, and fiber optics.

Available in travel lengths up to 72 inches (both X and Y axis) these two axis linear stepper motor gantries feature an open loop accuracy of .001 in/ft (85 microns/m and repeatability of 0.0004 in. (10 microns). For closed loop operation an optional encoder is available. Full step resolution is 0.010 (250 microns), however, when microstepped, step size resolution can be as small as 0.00004 in. (10 microns). Continuous force on both X and Y-axis is 6 lb. (27 N), peak force is 8 lb. (36 N).

For easy integration custom mounting holes in the base plate and the Y-axis stage are available. A complete package including an indexer and driver for open loop operation or controller and driver for closed loop operation are available from H2W Technologies.

H2W Technologies, Inc. is dedicated to the design and manufacture of linear and rotary motion products that are used in the motion control industry. The complete line of linear electric motors includes: Single and dual axis linear steppers, DC brush and brushless linear motors, voice coil actuators, and AC induction motors. Also offered is a complete line of ball screw, lead screw and belt driven positioning stages.

Other motion control products include: Limited angle torque motors for compact, limited angular excursion rotary servo applications, 3 phase brushless rotary servo motors with matching digital servo amplifiers and permanent magnet linear brakes for fail-safe, zero power braking for baggage handling and people moving applications as well as amusement park rides.

With over 75 years combined experience in the linear and rotary motion field, the H2W Technologies team of engineers offers the optimal solution to the most demanding motion control, requirements.
