NEW: Linear Motor Stages with Increased Efficiency for High-precision Motion Control

The new X-LDM-AE and X-LDQ-AE linear motor stages from Zaber Technologies

The X-LDM-AE and X-LDQ-AE Series high-precision linear motor stages are the latest additions to Zaber's range.

X-LDM-AE Series

Zaber's X-LDM-AE Series devices are computer-controlled, motorised linear stages suited for applications demanding outstanding precision, throughput, and reliability. A centrally mounted linear encoder results in 1 µm position accuracy and consistent movement steps down to 25 nm. X-LDM-AE devices feature high efficiency ironless linear motors, providing high speed and acceleration, while minimising heat generation to improve repeatability. Both the drive and encoder are non-contact, and have no moving cables, resulting in a high lifetime system.

  • High repeatability (80 nm) and accuracy (1 µm), with 25 nm minimum incremental move
  • Direct position measurement from 1 nm resolution linear encoder
  • Up to 1.2 m/s speed and up to 3.5 g acceleration
  • 60, 110, 210 mm travel options
  • Built-in controller; daisy-chains with other Zaber products
  • Non-contact ironless linear motor for ultra precision, high dynamics and zero backlash
  • Mounts directly in XY

X-LDQ-AE Series

Introducing the X-LDQ-AE Series, Zaber's new linear motor stage with a built-in controller. This is a first of its kind - making set-up as easy as 1-2-3. These devices ship pre-tuned and Zaber's free software allows you to quickly and easily adjust the tuning parameters. Zero backlash, 1.5 m/s, and 3 µm accuracy over 1000 mm travel. 30-day satisfaction guarantee and 1-2 week lead time.

  • Minimum incremental move of 50 nm
  • Integrated linear encoder provides high accuracy closed loop servo positioning
  • Up to 1.5 m/s speed and up to 2 g acceleration
  • 75, 150, 300, 450, 600 and 1000 mm travel
  • Up to 2.5 µm accuracy over 1000 mm travel
  • Built-in controller; daisy-chains with other Zaber products
  • Zero backlash
