Primatics PCL40 Series linear positioning stages are our most compact linear guide bearing stages. Ideal for applications such as automated microscope inspection, medical assembly and semiconductor wafer testing and fabrication, the PCL40 offers unparalleled flexibility, allowing the user to fit a standard product into their most space constrained applications.
The in-line version of the PCL40 accepts standard English NEMA 17-frame step and servo motors. Because the motor mount is designed so its lower surface stays inside the cross-section of the positioner, the PCL40 can be mounted directly to a flat surface. An optional adapter enables a NEMA 23 motor to be mounted in place of a NEMA 17.
Standard options for the PCL40 is a step motor and a brushless servo motor. The step motor option can be ordered with or without an internal encoder. The servo motor option is always ordered with one of the encoder options.
The internal encoder option affords a short overall length compared with the motor on the rear of the attached motor. Resolution to 0.25um is available
Two PCL40s can be directly stacked in an X,Y configuration without the need of an adaptor plate. The total stack height is just 80mm.
Optical Breadboard Compatible
The PCL40 Series can be directly mounted to either an English or Metric pattern optical breadboard without the use of adapters. An optional English or Metric tabletop is also available for the mounting of lab equipment to the stage.
