Primatics PXL43 is a small form factor, high precision linear motion stage. A linear motor and linear encoder provide precise positioning travels of 25, 85, 115, and 150mm. Anti-creep cage cross roller linear bearings result in smooth, flat, and straight motion.


The PXL43 series is ideal for use in applications for precision assembly and inspection. Its compact size is ideal for space constrained applications. The ironless linear motor and high resolution encoder yields extremely smooth motion for scanning applications. Process corrections are no problem due to the PXL43s incredible ability to make nanometer level steps.


Standard features include a precision linear encoder with index at the center of travel. Multiple resolutions and clock frequencies are available along with a 1Vpp analog version. Forward and reverse limit sensors are also standard. Two PXL43s can be directly stacked for XY configurations with a total height of 86mm and the smaller PXL33 can be stacked on a PXL43.


For use in vertical applications an optional pneumatic counterbalance is available. The counterbalance is adjusted for the payload after installation. Improved accuracy can be achieved with the Mapping option. Data is provided from laser interferometer measurements to generate position correction information along the entire travel of the stage.
