ATS1500 Mechanical Bearing, Screw-Driven Linear Stage

Description

Design Features

  • Low cost; high performance
  • Travel to 300 mm
  • Crossed-roller bearings
  • Two drive-screw choices and accuracy levels
  • Low height profile
  • Large tabletop mounting area with both metric and English mounting hole spacing and threads

The ATS1500 series provides a flexible platform that makes it an outstanding selection for use as a general purpose positioner.

Flexible Options

With a range of drive-screw options, the ATS1500 can be configured to meet the needs of any application. Two levels of drive-screw accuracy grades are available with screw pitches of 4 mm/rev or 0.2 in/rev.

Standard brackets simplify configuring the ATS1500 for use in multi-axis configurations.

Construction Features

The ATS1500 features a large moving carriage that provides the user with a large area to mount fixturing. All table mounting holes are fitted with Helicoil stainless steel inserts to permit multiple screw insertions without thread wear. Both metric and English bolt-hole and mounting patterns are available.

Accurate optical limit switches and cushioned end stops protect the stage and motor from overrun.

Motors and Drives

Aerotech's BMS series brushless rotary motors are included with all ATS1500 series stages. This motor has all of the advantages of a brushless motor – high acceleration and no wear – at the price of a stepper motor. Stepping motors are available.

Aerotech manufactures a wide range of amplifiers and controllers to provide a fully integrated and optimized motion solution.

  1. Payload specifications are for single-axis system and based on ball screw and bearing life of 250 km (10 million inches) of travel.
  2. Specifications are for single-axis systems measured 25 mm above the tabletop. Performance of multi-axis systems is payload and workpoint dependent. Consult factory for multi-axis or non-standard applications.
  • Cantilevered load capability of the ATS1500

Integration (Required)

Aerotech offers both standard and custom integration services to help you get your system fully operational as quickly as possible. The following standard integration options are available for this system. Please consult Aerotech if you are unsure what level of integration is required, or if you desire custom integration support with your system.
-TAS Integration - Test as system
Testing, integration, and documentation of a group of components as a complete system that will be used together (ex: drive, controller, and stage). This includes parameter file generation, system tuning, and documentation of the system configuration.
-TAC Integration - Test as components
Testing and integration of individual items as discrete components. This is typically used for spare parts, replacement parts, or items that will not be used or shipped together (ex: stage only). These components may or may not be part of a larger system
