XY stages take the hassle out of using linear motors

A range of easy to use, fast and accurate tubular linear motor driven XY stages will be shown by Linear Drives at Manufacturing Week.

For designers requiring integrated XY motion to increase machine throughput, these single rail modules give a cost effective alternative to conventional XY tables, but offer backlash free motion and reduced move times. Motion systems built up using the modules provide an easy route to integrated, high throughput motion solutions.
