High Precision Stages / Air Bearing Systems

High Precision Stages / Air Bearing Systems Image

Air bearing stages are high precision motion systems that rely upon air bearings for linear positioning. They specifically replace the rollers and sliding components of mechanical systems with a thin cushion of air for bearings to move while floating. The flat, magnetically pre-loaded air bearing positioners then guide the payload, while a brushless linear motor generally drives the system and an ironless core coil assembly acts as the drive mechanism.

The benefits for high-precision stages and air bearing systems are as follows:

  • creates smooth, flat, and straight motion
  • offers constant velocity
  • performance does not degrade over time
  • little to no mechanical wear and tear
  • zero friction
  • provides nanometer-level positioning resolution

Use air bearing stages when your automation project requires vibration-free motion.
