M-406 Precision Linear Stage

PI M-406.6PD
Travel ranges to 150 mm
Crossed roller bearings
DC servo motor drive
Direction-sensing reference point switch

Precision-class linear stage

High travel accuracy and load capacity due to crossed roller guides. Precision leadscrew with 0.5 mm pitch, backlash-compensated, 50 N self-locking. Stress-relieved aluminum base for highest stability.

  • PD variant: DC motor with integrated ActiveDrive amplifier for high velocity.
  • DG variant: DC servo motor with gearhead in conjunction with precision rotary encoder for high resolution and repeatability

Noncontact limit switches. Noncontact reference point switch with direction sensing in the middle of the travel range.

Crossed roller guide

With crossed roller guides, the point contact of the balls in ball guides is replaced by line contact of the hardened rollers. Consequently, they are considerably stiffer and need less preload, which reduces friction and allows smoother running. Crossed roller guides are also distinguished by high guiding accuracy and load capacity. Force-guided rolling element cages prevent linear guide creeping.

Fields of application

Precision positioning in laboratory environments, test equipment.
