Applied Scientific Instrumentation (ASI) offers an assortment
of stages with flat tops and an extended range of travel for robotic loading. The
MS-2500 stage provides 100 mm of Y-axis travel and 250 mm of X-axis travel, and
it works well on existing inverted microscopes. Custom OEM configurations are available,
including front-loading stages with more than 300 mm of Y-axis travel. All axes
derive their precise control through the use of closed-loop DC servomotors employing
high-resolution encoders for positioning feedback. The X-Y stage uses crossed-roller
slides, precision leadscrews and zero-backlash miniature geared DC servomotors for
smooth and accurate motion. The stages come standard with rotary encoders with a
resolution of 100 nm and bidirectional repeatability of better than 800 nm rms.
Resolutions down to 20 nm and repeatability accuracies of <300 nm rms can be
obtained with optional linear encoders.
