Linear Positioning Stages
The Airex P3 Series™ Positioning Stage offers the exact combination of precision, performance, and power required by a wide range of automation, packaging, electronic, semiconductor, and life science applications. The P3 Series™ is the result of a joint development project by engineers at Airex Corporation and Schneeberger Linear Technology. The P3 Series™ combines true state-of-the-art design AND “plug and play” installation to provide a cost-effective alternative to in-house design efforts.
Airex Solution Series™ brushless, ironless, direct-drive linear motors provide industry-proven reliability. The P3 is a robust design with numerous advantages over stages using iron core motors, including high stiffness, zero cogging, high acceleration, and high speed. In addition, the P3 Series™ motor has a significantly improved cooling capability since the linear motor coil is directly integrated into the moving carriage. This design maximizes useable output power enabling the P3 Series to handle the high duty cycle operations required in today’s competitive manufacturing environment. The P3 Series™ is ideal whether your application requires ultra-smooth motion for imaging; or rapid move and settling times with precision positioning for high speed pick-and-place requirements.
The “plug and play” design of the Airex P3 Series™ includes over-travel limit switches, a home reference output from the linear encoder, 3-phase motor inputs, Hall commutation outputs, and an integral cable carrier with power and sensor connectors.
