X-417: Granit-Based XYZ Motion and Positioning System for Laser Machining

For industrial applications with high demands on dynamics and precision, the X-417 multi-axis system provides an integrated solution. Systems from XY or XYZ with the appropriate ACS high-performance controller from PI are available. The system comprises two V-417 high-load linear stages with linear motors and absolute-measuring linear encoders.

Combining different travel range variants is possible: 204 mm to 407 mm. Granite plates are also offered for the XY systems. For the XYZ systems, the Z axis is an L-412 high-load linear stage with a 102 mm travel range, synchronous servo motor, and holding brake.

The adapter bracket needed to secure the Z axis to the granite base is part of the delivery for the XYZ systems that also come with a granite plate as a base.

Features

  • Optional with granite base plate
  • Delivery includes extensive test reports
  • Extensive accessories and software support are available
  • XY system is made of two V-417 positioners, with travel ranges from 204 to 407 mm
  • XYZ system with L-412 positioner as Z axis, 102 mm travel range
  • Suitable G-901 ACS controller with ACS driver module

Electronics production; Ultrashort pulse laser machining; Laser micromachining; Galvo integration; Laser ablation; Test and inspection; Ceramics and diamond cutting; Laser drilling; Laser welding.

Options and Accessories

  • Additional cable set for XYZ system: Cable length for X/Y axes 2 m, for Z axis 3 m
  • Software support, e.g. for SPS integration
  • Base frame
  • Breadboard set for granite plate
  • Adapter bracket
