For precise positioning and gauging in manufacturing and testing environments, Velmex Inc. offers a line of UniSlide stages with new compact optical encoders. The screw-driven slides use a 1- or 5-μm-resolution encoder to measure absolute travel distance and position. The LED digital readout has an RS-232C interface, a zero reset button and an inch/metric toggle switch. The stages are available in cross-sectional widths of 2.5, 4, 6 and 9 in. for loads of up to 300 lb. Models with travel ranges from 1 to 84 in. are available, and the stages also can be motor-driven.
