NLE Series Linear Stage

The NLE series linear slide utilizes a high resolution linear encoder to increase positional accuracy.

Vacuum compatible versions of the NLE Series are available.

NLE linear slides are designed for a variety of applications in research and other industrial areas requiring precision positioning such as in semiconductor processing, fiber optics manufacturing and biotech automation.

The design of the NLE series stages was optimized for maximum stability and performance with the use of FEA analysis and incorporates the best in materials and component selection.

For more reliability and durability, the linear guide bearings, leadscrew, and linear encoder are protected with an aluminum way cover.

All NLE series stages are machined from 6061 aluminum alloy to provide a light yet stiff and stable linear slide.

The drive system utilizes a 303 stainless steel leadscrew with internally lubricated acetal 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 use linear guide bearings provide a smooth motion with high load capacity and stiffness. Since the carriage is supported over the entire travel of the stage, a good cantilevered load capacity can be achieved.

Separate connectors for motor power and limit/encoder signals are provided for ease of operation. Integrated limit switches, optical linear encoder and a high torque size 17 stepper motor are supplied as standard items.

The NLE can be configured as an XY table or XYZ Table.
