Linear stages of the CHS and SHL series are specifically designed to handle heavy payloads. The mechanical design is based on an actuated wedge which guarantees highest resolution of the stages motion. A separate guideway assures a straight movement along the load direction and allows an integration of a position sensor for direct position feedback and closed-loop operation. Stages with one degree of freedom, intended for pure vertical lifting movement, can be equipped with an additional constant force spring (CFS) to increase the payload to even higher values. CHS stages are equipped with SmarAct’s exchangeable drive units for easy maintenance. CHS and SHL stages can also be combined to form multi-axis systems with high blocking forces in all three dimensions.
While being able to handle high payloads, SmarAct high load stages remain very compact and are even suitable for setups with space constraints.
