Specifications

Features

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.

Economical Micro-stepping Stepper Motor

For less demanding applications, a stepper motor can be a more economical solution than a DC motor. A stepper motor operates using the basic principle of magnetic attraction and repulsion, converting digital pulses into mechanical shaft rotation. To improve the resolution and smoothness of motion, the MTN-PP and MTN-PPV6 feature micro-stepping, a method of electronically dividing a full-step of motion into a high number of partial steps.

Vacuum Compatible Versions

The MTN-PPV6 are the vacuum compatible versions of the MTN stepper motor stage. They can be used in a vacuum environment down to 10-6 hPa. Their performance is the same as their corresponding MTN-PP stepper motor stage, except that the maximum speed is 20 mm/sec and centered load capacity is 100 N.

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.
