MFA-CC Compact Linear Stage
The MFA is one of Newport's steel stage offerings designed for optimized thermal stability, high stiffness and high load capcity in a very compact package. Relative to the stage's size, the miniature MFA is a low-cost option which offers precision motion for space-confined applications.
A full steel body allows for a more compact design with exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio, greater thermal stability and high load capacity.
The double row, linear ball bearing slides provide excellent payload capabilities and longer life with accurate linear trajectory.
The MFA-CCV6 is the vacuum compatible version of the MFA, compatible down to 10-6 hPa.
The stage contains end-of-run limit switches on both ends to prevent damage to the stage from over-travel.
The MFA includes a backlash compensated leadscrew, which increases repeatability. For even greater repeatability, the MFA-CC utilizes a motor-mounted rotary encoder of 2,048 cts/rev.
Newport guarantees specification values which are measured and recorded following ASME B5.57 and ISO 230-2 standards. The typical performance values are two times better than the guaranteed specifications.
