Specifications

Features

Reliable Straightness Over Long Travel Ranges

The IMS-LM stages employ straightness compensation methods to offer improved straightness performance over long travel ranges of up to 1.2 meters. They are designed for self-supporting applications and are a cost-effective solution for precision industrial and laboratory systems.

The high stiffness of the IMS-LM stages results in very short settling times that improve the performance and throughput of many stepping, scanning, and continuous machining processes.

FEM Optimized Extremely Stiff Aluminum Body

The IMS-LM series utilizes an extremely stiff, FEM optimized extruded aluminum body which minimizes the bi-metal bending effect caused by different thermal expansion coefficients of aluminum and steel. The unique, rigid body design of the IMS-LM provides high motion performance over long distance and reduces deflection under load without compromising on weight.

20 nm Minimum Incremental Motion

Precision position feedback is supplied by a highly repeatable linear scale mounted inside the stage. The encoder signals are interpolated by Newport’s XPS motion controller with 20 nm MIM for outstanding repeatability and stability. Absolute home position and limit signals are incorporated in the linear scale to improve repeatability and reliability, without additional electronics or mechanical parts for optimal precision.

IMS-LM stages are capable of performing very small incremental motions with high accuracy and reliability.

Non-Contact Drive Linear Motor

The high efficiency, iron-core linear motor has the advantage of higher speed, acceleration and system responsiveness with no wear of motor brushes or drive screws, significantly reducing heat generation. The IMS-LM is the optimum solution for applications that require high-throughput, high reliability, and ultra-quiet operation even when traveling long distances.

Recirculating Ball Bearings Slides

The recirculating ball bearing slides provide excellent payload capabilities and longer life with accurate linear trajectory. It mitigates the issue of ball cage migration, which is typically found on linear ball bearings or crossed roller bearings.

Stand Alone Versions

The -SA versions are for high speed applications over a non-flat mounting surface with a small load. Contrary to the regular higher load IMSxxxLM version, the -SA version includes 4 mounting pads for non-flat mounting surfaces to maintain its pitch and yaw performance and while supporting  up to a 10 kg centered load capacity.

Metrology Report Included at No Additional Cost

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.
