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. The motion of linear stages may be restricted to one, two, or three dimensions.

Over time, various types of motors have been designed for motion control. Typically, you 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.

Most common materials used for the stage are aluminum, which is often black anodized, and stainless steel. For higher precision, resolution, and stiffness stainless steel is a better choice.

Generally, manual or motorized stages are graded based upon their accuracy specifications: resolution, repositioning accuracy, and backlash clearance. A few additional specifications play an important role. Among those are the stage speed, load capacity, weight, clean-room compatibility.

The key parts of the TSA-C series slim motorized linear stages include grinding ball screws, cross-roller guides, and high-quality shaft coupling.

Signal communication is made easy by using standard electrical and mechanical interfaces.

Yes, customers can operate these stages manually by using a handwheel attached to the motor.

The height of the table surface is 30mm.

The main characteristics include grinding screws with a 1mm lead pitch, standard two-phase stepping motors, higher loading capability with cross-roller guides, compact design with slim table surface, and mechanical position-limit switch and sensor for operation safety.
