ST-8MT173

Motorized Translation Stages ST-8MT173 are created on the basis of ST-7T173 manual translation stages and have identical mechanical parameters. Resolution, speed and load capacity all depend on parameters of the motor, translation stages, as well as on the controller and driving mode in use. For vertical (Z axis) mounting we offer angle bracket ST-2AB173-20. Angle brackets of custom design can be manufactured on request. Two mechanical limit switches are built into each translation stage and can be use as an emergency stop at the end of the travel range or to establish a reference position with accuracy of several motor steps (use E4 option for more accurate zero position setting). The motor position can be visually determined with accuracy of one step by reading a scale engraved on the dial knob fitted on motor shaft (use Encoder for monitoring exact position using PC). The body and platform of the ST-8MT173 are made of black finished aluminum. Functional parts are made of steel.

ST-8MT30-50

The ST-MT30-50 is a newly developed stage which incorporates many improvements and modifications since its predecessor (ST-8MT173-20-50) was launched. 

This stage has the ability to operate in any orientation, which means the stage can be hung upside down or operate vertically with motor facing upwards or downwards. The durability of this stage has drastically improved with the ability to apply grease to the screw without having to disassemble the stage. The vertical load capacity has increased to 3kg and as the stage is spring loaded, this eliminates backlash. The new design of this stage ensures more stable and precise motion over the full translation range.

For vertical mounting the ST-2AB173-20-50 angle bracket may be used. Custom design angle brackets are available on request.

There are two mechanical limit switches built into each translation stage used which can be used as an emergency stop at the ends of the travel range or to establish a reference position with accuracy of several motor steps (use E4 option for more accurate zero position setting. The motor position can be visually determined with accuracy of one step by reading a scale engraved on the dial knob fitted on motor shaft (use Encoder for monitoring exact position using PC). The body and platform are made of black finished aluminum. Functional parts are made of steel.

ST-8MT50

For applications requiring vertical Z axis movement, we suggest using stages with brake mounted on motor, to prevent carrier sliding down when motor current is turned off. Ordering code of Z stages is ST-8MT50Z and it is also implemented in XYZ assemblies by default.

Controller ST-8SMC5-USB-1BR is required to take advantage of the brake equipped stage capabilities.

Key features:

  • Models with 100, 150, 200 mm travel range

    • ST-8MT50-100​

    • ST-8MT50-150

    • ST-8MT50-200

  • Narrow

  • Compact design

  • High speed

  • Heavy load capacity

  • X-Y-Z configurations available

  • Motors of other types are available

  • Vacuum version available (ST-8MT50V)
