Linear Stage – The V-400 Series for Industrial Solutions

 In Motion Control Products, Product News

Cost Efficient High-Performance Linear Stage

The new V-400 Linear Stage Series, suitable for use in industrial solutions, has now expanded with two new version, the V-412 & V-417. Utilizing high-performance synchronous servo motors, heavy-duty recirculating ball bearings, and precision encoders the linear stages offer high load capacity and allows higher dynamics. To achieve maximum flexibility, there’s an option to choose between incremental or absolute encoders. An absolute encoder supply explicit position information which enables immediate determination of the position, meaning that referencing is not required during switch-on. This increases efficiency and safety during operation.

Technical data

  • Width: 116 mm (V-412) & 166 (V-417)
  • Travel range: < 813 mm
  • Load capacity: <400 N (V-412) & <450 N (V-417)
  • Optional holding brake allows use as a Z-axis.

The V-400 series is guided by a Magnetic Direct Motor Drive, in comparison to the L-400 Series which is guided by a DC & Stepper Motor.

Field of use

The Linear Stage is suitable for use in applications where high demands on dynamics, precision, smooth motion, short settling times, and low tracking error are required. This includes among other AOI (Automatic Optical Inspection), Automation, Electronics production & Laser cutting.

For the L-400 Series, the ball screw can be relubricated without dismantling which helps to ensure the highest reliability and longest lifetime. It is also possible to integrate these linear stages into a central lubrication system. Additionally, there is a covering strip on the side and the purge air connection that prevents any contamination by particles.
