Air Bearing Cartesian Planar Systems
from IntelLiDrives, Inc.

Planar XY Table consists of moving element called forcer, which glides on the frictionless air bearings over the special "waffle-like "surface called platen. Planar forcer contains two or four linear motoring modules oriented 90 degrees to each other. As motoring modules respond to varying currents,... [See More]

  • Y-Axis Travel: 4.53 to 39.37
Extended Travel Linear Air Bearing Slide
from PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P.

Extended travel air bearings are ideal for high speed, high accuracy, lightly loaded applications. Unlike other long travel air bearings, the bearing slide is supported only on the ends (similar to a gantry) reducing the requirements for expensive precision support surfaces. Inherently frictionless... [See More]

Air Bearing Stage -- ABS-011-09-030-X
from H2W Technologies

The ABS-011-09-030-X air bearing positioning stage uses a brushless linear motor to generate a continuous/peak force of 30.1 lbs [134 N]/790.3 lbs [402 N] with a total stroke length of 10.5 in [267 mm]. The non-contact 1.0-micron resolution encoder allows for precise positioning. It is guided by 5... [See More]
