Linear stages are positioning devices used in motion control systems to provide high precision linear motion. Overall, these devices are used to restrict an object to a single axis of motion. This ability is critical to the success of industrial and scientific applications such as semiconductor manufacturing and photonics instrumentation. All linear stages are made up of a platform and base, joined by a guide or linear bearing so that the platform is restricted to a linear motion in relation to the base. Linear stages work by physically restricting 3 axes of rotation and 2 axes of translation thus allowing for motion on only one translational axis.
