Nanometer Resolution Linear Stage
"Nano-Stage"TM uses poly-phase synchronous DC brushless motors to provide precise positional control. Resolution is typically 640,000 increments per inch (39.7 nm) with no microstep spacing error. Fixed lead screw configuration reduces moving parts and rigid construction minimizes positional error due to chassis deformation. The stages are designed to be stackable for multi-axis applications.
Intelligent control is provided by The Motion Group’s MMC motion control/driver system. Features include adjustable torque, stall protection, optical Super-Homing, slip detection and over-travel safety limits. Other control features include ramped acceleration/deceleration and general-purpose I/O functions for valves, indicators, switches and sensors. On-board non-volatile program memory allows the stage to be used for stand-alone repetitive tasks. The controller also interfaces with any computer for interactive real-time tasks (when interfaced with popular control/data acquisition software including LabViewTM) or user-interactive tasks under keyboard control. Multiple units can be networked together for coordinated control.
"Nano-Stage"TM is a typical element in The Motion Group's nanoscopic "Build-A-Lab"TM system. Other components available include robotic “Nano-Pump”TM picoliter syringe pumps, robotic peristaltic pumps, tip/pipette micro-actuators, motion controllers and network controllers. Kits and complete systems for custom research lab applications are available. Contact The Motion Group for more information.
