VTS300 Vertical Translation Stage Positions

The Aerotech VTS300vertical translation stage can position loads up to 450 kg (1000 lb) with A plus or minus 25Amum accuracy in applications requiring a compact footprint with travels from 50to 200 mm. Applications range from step and settle placement to high forcegeneration. Multiple units can be combined for lift and tip/tilt motion toprovide a flexible, high performance, multi-axis motion solution.

Fromthe high-stiffness aluminum-alloy base and table, to pre-loaded angular contactball-bearings that support the 0.1 inch/rev lead-screw, each component of theVTS300 was chosen for use in applications requiring precision motion with highloads. Linear motion guide bearings give payload capability and long life, evenwith heavy offset loads.

VTS300series stages are offered with matchedstepping or NEMA 23 or 34 brushless servomotors thatdrive a high capacity 90 degree gearbox. Motorscan be left-, right-, or rear-oriented.

Inaddition to movable limit switches to adjust travel range, vacuum preparation is available for operation invacuum chambers from 10-3 to 10-6 torr.
