Air Bearing Stage, SinguLYS B-1200
Air Bearing Stage, SinguLYS S-370


SinguLYS S-370

The SinguLYS™ S-370 stage is manufactured from silicon carbide (SiC) ceramic components, similar to Newport's popular DynamYX® and HybrYXTM stage product families. The body's extremely rigid and compact footprint with 3-point mounting allows this stage to be used in tight spaces typically reserved for mechanical bearing designs without the need for large, lapped mounting surfaces to maintain precise trajectory. The lightweight carriage features integrated pressure-vacuum air bearings which are guided by a precisely-lapped SiC body. Newport's new high precision stage is ideal for tasks with very high duty-cycles that require low angular deviation, tight velocity regulation, and high cleanliness standards.

SinguLYS B-1200

The SinguLYS B-1200 air bearing bridge features a proprietary ceramic beam that is 3 times lighter than steel and offers triple the stiffness of granite. When used to replace a steel or granite-based design in an existing or next-generation tool, the properties of the B-1200 can improve acceleration and decrease settling times, which increases throughput and accuracy with minimal system redesign. The lightweight and rigid pressure-vacuum air bearing carriage accommodates high (10kg) cantilevered payloads with 2.5G acceleration and, unlike stages using mechanical bearings, minimizes contamination to the substrate below. Applications for Newport's B-1200 include Gen 8-11 flat panel display inspection, thin film photovoltaic scribing, and wafer processing.

Air Bearing Stage Overview

Zero Maintenance

Newport's noncontact air bearing, noncontact linear motor drive and noncontact feedback device ensures years of maintenance free operation with no wear or degradation of performance. Since no lubrication is required, air bearings are ideal for cleanroom and medical applications.
