Low-cost, high-performance stage
6, 13 and 25 mm travel models
Precision-ground ball screw
Integral or removable motor
Aerotech’s AVS100/AVSI100 series stages offer a solution for applications that require very small incremental movements in elevation above a horizontal plane. Low profiles and precise motion capability make these stages ideal for use in semiconductor wafer inspection and testing, fiberoptics assembly and inspection, automated tool alignment, machine vision inspection systems, and laser machining applications.
The AVSI100 series stages provide identical performance to the AVS100 stages, but in an even smaller footprint. The AVSI100 integrates the motor directly with the drive screw with no motor coupling. This makes the stage significantly shorter in length.
Quality Design Provides Superior Performance
The AVS100/AVSI100 series provides precise elevation of a load in a vertical plane. Rotational movement of a precision-ground ballscrew is converted into vertical elevation of the AVS100/AVSI100 series tabletop.
Sealed linear motion guide bearings with integral wipers are incorporated to provide excellent payload capability, long life, and smooth, precision motion. Stable and parallel vertical motion with no rocking or horizontal deviation of the platform is ensured.
Careful mechanical design allows the AVS100/AVSI100 series to achieve submicron resolution and still maintain a compact profile. The optional HALAR factory calibration option is available to further increase standard accuracy and repeatability.
