LC Series Linear Stage
The LC Series linear stages are designed for a variety of applications in research & development, automation, and other industrial areas requiring quick positioning of light payloads.
The LC series offers travel lengths from 200 mm to 400 mm. Two lead screw pitches are available, a 2mm pitch for higher resolution and a 12mm pitch for high speed applications. The LC comes standard with a high torque size 17 stepper motor end of travel limit switches. The limit switch and motor cables are terminated by a 9 pin connector near the rear of the stage next to the motor.
The drive system utilizes a stainless steel ACME leadscrew with internally lubricated plastic drive nut. The drive nut offers zero backlash operation that automatically adjusts for wear to insure zero backlash for the life of the stage.
The LC Series can be configured as XY, XZ, or XYZ linear stage.
All LC linear stages are machined from 6061 aluminum alloy and black anodized.
