LMS Series - Direct Drive Linear Motor Stage

LMS Series brushless DC linear motor stage

LMS Series Direct Drive Linear Motor Positioner

LMS Series brushless DC direct drive XY linear motor stageThe LMS Series linear motor stage is offered in a travel lengths of 100 mm, 200 mm, 300 mm, and 400mm with a maximum speed of 400 mm/sec. This is the ideal stage for applications requiring high speed and precise positioning applications such as semiconductor manufacturing, laser processing, microscopy, metrology, pick-and-place operations, and automated assembly systems.


Instead of using traditional rotary motors coupled with lead screws or belts to create linear motion, the LMS Series utilizes a linear motor that directly converts electrical energy into linear motion 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 limit switches come standard on the LMS Series linear motor stage.

  • Linear Motor
  • Optical Linear Encoder
  • Maintenance Free
  • Smooth Motion
  • Zero Backlash

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.
