SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – H2W Technologies Inc. in Santa Clarita, Calif., is introducing the VMS06-008-LB-01 high-acceleration, voice coil-driven positioning stage for positioning applications.
The stage has a sliding contact bearing system to enable long lifetimes, long cycles, and desirable system mean times between failures (MTBF).
The voice coil stage uses a custom low-profile design that uses a electromagnetic circuit design for a minimal cross section of 1.2 inches by 1.0 inches.
The stage has a 0.6-inch stroke; generates 1.12 pounds of continuous force, and 3.36 pounds of peak force. Guiding each axis are sliding contact bushing assemblies.
The device includes a one-micron-resolution magnetic linear encoder, and uses a moving magnet, which has no moving wires, and has anti-rotation elements built-in to prevent shafts from slipping.
