The Voice Coil Stage is used in positioning applications where high speed and high accuracy are required. The stage may be used in the following industries; Semiconductor, Disk Drive, Automotive, Medical, Industrial, Optical, Test and Manufacturing. The non-commuted motor construction increases reliability. The direct coupling of the motor to the stage allows for fast acceleration / deceleration and high speed operation. The Voice Coil Stages do not need commutation and using a position sensor, positioning resolutions of less than one micron or 0.00004 inches are achievable.
