Zaber's Fastest, Longest Travel Stage

Zaber's new and improved stage (X-BLQ-E) is a closed-loop, belt-driven motorized linear stage with built-in motor encoder and controller. With travel lengths up to 3 m, 10 µm repeatability, and a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s, X-BLQ-E stages are perfect for rapid positioning over large distances. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery, and an optional indexed knob provides manual control for operation without a computer.
