Product Details Supplier Info More products

Aerotech has released its improved ANT95 Nanotranslation series, including single-axis and integrated dual-axis stages.

These offer 25 and 50mm travel ranges with 1nm resolution and a choice of +/-3.0 microns or +/-250nm certified accuracy classes.

The design is based on an advanced anti-creep cross-roller-bearing system, direct-drive, brushless linear servomotor and 40MHz encoder processing that combines with real-time axis calibration.

The ANT95 Nanotranslation series provides jitter-free 3.0nm in-position stability with maximum stage speeds up to 500mm/sec and acceleration to 5g.

The durable aluminium black hardcoat finish body provides high stability and the Nanotranslation stages return a bi-directional repeatability of +/-100 or +/-50nm over the two accuracy classes.

The single-axis stage, the ANT95-L, has a payload of up to 7kg for the 50mm travel version and is easily assembled into multi-axis positioning systems with other ANT95 Nanotranslation stages, or other vertical, rotary and goniometric translation stages from Aerotech.

The dual X-Y version, the ANT95-XY, is a three-piece design with up to 6kg load capacity and a 60mm height.

The dual-axis stage has the same mounting-hole patterns as the single-axis version and shares adapter- and breadboard-mounting plates for interfacing the customer application.

Both single- and dual-axis ANT95 Nanotranslation stages include cable management.

The ANT95 series is supplied complete with Aerotech motion controllers and servo amplifiers.

Users may choose A3200+Npaq or Ensemble series for multi-axis setups or Soloist series for single-axis applications.

PWM amplifier options are available for less demanding levels of accuracy, resolution and precision.

Aerotech’s A3200 Automation Platform is a PC-based, software-only controller with IEEE-1394 Firewire protocol networking that delivers fully deterministic, high-speed, distributed control in combination with Aerotech’s Ndrive digital servo amplifiers.

The A3200 includes machine control modules for HMI, Vision and PLC, which may be integrated into the customer’s application.

Aerotech’s Ensemble is a fully integrated desktop or 19in rack-mounted motion control and drive system with Ethernet and USB for up to nine axes of motion and machine control.

The single-axis Soloist is a panel-mount, integrated motion-control and servo amplifier.

All motion controllers offer a selection of diagnostic, commissioning and programming options, including Aerotech’s Aerobasic, Visual Basic C, C++, with higher-level, Windows-based ActiveX components with C++, VB and .NET class libraries to enhance programming capabilities and system integration.

All Aerotech motion systems are delivered fully tested and pre-commissioned with setup parameters pre-loaded into the controller.

Documentation and test calibration information is also included.
