Belt Driven Compact Multi-axis Actuators

We develop low cost Multi-Axis Systems.  Below is an example of a compact assembly that uses a combination of belt and ball screw drive technology.  These assemblies are provided complete with stepper motors.   Since we make all components in house we can easily modify each axis travel length to match the application requirements.       

In addition to virtual (computer aided) modelling during our development process we frequently build prototypes to evaluation designs.  For OEM applications quick prototyping is important to flush out issues or any problems in the system.

Applications of these actuators are can be found in medical equipment or devices where features listed below are important.

  • Compact Size
  • High Speed XY Movement
  • Positional Repeatability of +/- 5 microns
  • Affordable for High Volume Manufacturing
