Linear Motor Stages are ideal to use for applications requiring any combination of high speed, precision, and long travel. They are the only one that can do all three at once. Many design engineers overestimate how accurate traditional motors and actuators stay over long travel runs, mistakenly believing that if the solution works well for short runs, it will work equally well on long ones. Although many types of linear systems can meet two of your three requirements (long travel lengths, high speed and high positioning accuracy), linear motor stages are the only type that can provide all three without compromise. They are often used in semiconductor manufacturing, consumer electronics inspection, medical and life science applications, machine tools, printing and packaging applications.
