Frequently Asked Questions

A linear translation stage is a precision device used in scientific and industrial applications for precise and accurate positioning of objects. Linear translation stages can be manual or motorized depending on the needs of the specific application.

As the naming suggests, 2D or two-axis motorized staged are linear translation stages with X and Y translational motion.

Over time, various types of motors have been designed for motion control purposes. Typically, one will find one of the following types of motors on 1D, 2D, 3D motorized stages: linear, piezo, DC, stepper, brushless. Based upon the requirements of the application, it might be necessary to carefully compare the performance of the motor types to select the right one. If budget is not an issue, one can achieve the best results on speed, resolution, repeatability, and load capacity with linear motors.

The main features of the Motorized XY Series All-in-One Two-Axis Stages include the use of ball screws for high-precision and high repetition-rate applications, cross-roller guides for better motion accuracy, and a rectangular through hole with optional glass or aluminum-alloy cover.

The Motorized XY Series All-in-One Two-Axis Stages are suitable for applications in mechatronics, robotics, laser optics, spectroscopy, semiconductor equipment, and OEM for a wide range of motion control needs.

The standard motors included with the Motorized XY Series All-in-One Two-Axis Stages are two-phase stepping motors. However, optional five-phase stepping motors or servo motors are also available.

Yes, the Motorized XY Series All-in-One Two-Axis Stages can be customized. Customers can request a quote on the product page to inquire about custom features.

The naming rule for the Motorized XY Series All-in-One Two-Axis Stages includes indicating the travel range of the X and Y axes, the type of motors (stepping or servo), and the series code (XY or XYR). Optional features such as a central light-through hole or covers are also indicated in the naming.
