Compact Linear Stepper Positioning Stage by H2W Technologies

H2W Technologies offers a compact, open type linear stepper stage, which can be utilized in closed-loop or open-loop positioning applications where high speed and high accelerations of lighter loads are required.

In an open-loop application, users can control the motor with a step and direction signal from a conventional microstepping drive. Through a flexible cable, power is supplied to the 2 or 4 phase forcer winding.

The linear stepper motor operates closed-loop when an optional linear encoder is integrated onto the single-axis linear stepper motor stage. It operates as a 2-phase brushless linear motor when coupled with H2W’s control electronics package.

This allows the stage to achieve accelerations and speeds that were earlier not possible with a linear stepper motor.

The lower moving mass of the stage enables higher accelerations of light payloads. The low weight of the stage makes it suitable as a Y axis in a multi-axis system.
