Aerotech Inc. has launched the AVS100 series vertical translation stages for use in semiconductor wafer inspection and testing, fiber optics assembly and inspection, automated tool alignment, machine vision inspection systems and laser machining applications. A precision-machined wedge block converts horizontal movement from a ball screw to vertical elevation of the stage's tabletop, and linear motion guide bearings provide good payload capability, long life and smooth, precise motion. The company says that the compact stages achieve submicron resolution. They come with integral limit switches, mechanical hard stops and a proprietary brushless, slotless servomotor with no cogging.
