All Steel Stage Body

The all steel construction allows for extreme stiffness and thermal stability. Because the entire body is made from steel, bi-metallic bending effects and errors are eliminated. Among the all steel linear stages, the MTN boasts the highest load capacity at 100 kg.

Closed-Loop DC Motor Drive

DC Motors are best characterized by their high speeds, smooth motion, good efficiency and a high power/weight ratio. An incremental sensor consisting of an optical scale and encoder head provides position feedback for smooth motion and good repeatability. DC Motor-driven stages are preferable to stepper motor stages for applications requiring high dynamic speed and tight repeatability. MTN series is available in brushless DC motor version for faster speed and finer repeatability and stepper motor version for a more economical solution.

Diamond-Corrected Lead Screw and Precision-Lapped Nut

The diamond-corrected lead screw ensures high stability and high vertical load capacity. The non-backdriving screw prevents any drift in vertical applications. The precision-lapped nut includes anti-backlash preloading and a sophisticated decoupling system, preventing lead screw eccentricity errors which are detrimental to repeatability.

Non-migrating Ball Cage Design

The non-migrating ball cage design eliminates cage drift, particularly in vertical applications, to enhance reliability.

Multi-Axis Stage Stacks and Table Mounting

For XY configurations of MTN stages, use the M-CAP-M61 captive screws. The same screws can also be used for bolting MTN stages directly to custom mounting surfaces via thru-holes at the carriage. For mounting MTN stages to optical tables, please use the MTN-BP base plate.

Individual Stage Metrology Report is Included

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.
