MSL Series Linear Stage

The MSL linear stages are designed for a variety of applications in research & development, automation, and other industrial areas requiring quick positioning of light payloads. Available in XY and XYZ Linear Stage configurations.

The MSL offers travel lengths from 25mm to 200mm and two leadscrew pitches: 2mm & 10mm. The MSL comes standard with a high torque size 17 stepper motor or optionaly, a MDrive intelligent stepper motor. Both motor options are also available with rotary encoders. End of travel limit switches come standard on the MSL linear stage.

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 linear slide.

The carriage on the MSL is supported over the entire range of travel using a single preloaded linear guide bearing.

The MSL is available as an XY linear stage using the XY adapter plate option, P/N: 250093.

All MSL linear tables are machined from 6061 aluminum alloy and black anodized.
