LMS Series – Brushless Linear Motor Slide

Product Videos

LMS Series Linear Motor Stage

The LMS Series linear motor stage is offered in a travel length of 400mm with a maximum speed of 400 mm/sec. This is the ideal stage for applications requiring high speed and precise positioning. The LMS Series utilizes a brushless DC linear drive motor eliminating the use of a leadscrew for precise backlash-free operation. A high resolution optical linear encoder is integrated to provide a positioning repeatability of ±1 µm. The carriage rides on twin precision linear guide bearings mounted to a 6061 aluminum chassis for high rigidity and linearity. End of travel optical limit switches come standard on the LMS Series linear stage.

The LMS Series is not suitable for use in a vertical orientation. This stage has very little friction and can easily be move by hand, therefore is not suitable for applications requiring the carriage to remain in position when power is not applied.
