Linear stages of the SHL Series are specially designed to handle heavy payloads. Their 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.
The stages can be equipped with an additional constant force spring to offset the payload to even higher values. Accordingly, nano-encoded stages which can lift up to 10 kilogramms over several millimeter are possible. While offering high payloads, SmarAct SHL stages remain very compact and are suitable also for set- ups with space contraints.
