Motorized Stages

MM-3M-F Linear

Folded Motorized MicroMini™ Stages

FEATURES:

  • 3D models available
  • Option among 4 gearhead ratios and two screw pitches
  • Built-in connectivity with all MM-3M MicroMini™ Stages
  • Fully English/Metric compatible
  • Slider Brace is mainly used for larger dimensional loads. Use on X, Y or Z axis
  • The LS is available for larger loads but reduces travel by 0.5". The LS is not available for the TR1 Travel Range.

When ordering multi-axis units the completed assembly will include all necessary braces, kits and hardware

Anti-Backlash (AB) Option for MM-3M-F & MM-3M-FOS

Anti-Backlash Diagram

The AB version is not limited to just providing anti-backlash; the AB option provides many additional benefits that make it the preferred choice of users.

The following is a list of benefits that make the AB option significantly important.

  • Reduces backlash from standard 25-50 micrometer to 2-4 micrometer.
  • Reservoir of lubrication for even distribution and long retention.
  • Perfect thread engagement for uniform wear and wear-in.
  • Highest possible linearity; true to lead screw thread accuracy (50 µinch).
  • Uniform radial pressure to eliminate tight spots that may cause servo interference.
  • Self-centering; no lateral stresses to slider resulting from normal lead screw straightness error.
  • Wiper action keeps threads clean and clear of dust and particles.

Regular stages cannot be upgraded to AB version
