All Steel Construction

A full steel body allows for a more compact design with exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio, greater thermal stability and high load capacity.

Vacuum Compatible Versions

The MFA-CCV6 is the vacuum compatible version of the MFA, compatible down to 10-6 hPa.

Double Row Linear Ball Bearing Slides

The double row, linear ball bearing slides provide excellent payload capabilities and longer life with accurate linear trajectory.

End-of Run Limit Switches

The stage contains end-of-run limit switches on both ends to prevent damage to the stage from over-travel.

Enhanced Repeatability

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.

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.
