Intellidrives Planar XY Table offers the unique capability to operate two axes of motion in one plane with one motor.
These systems are designed to replace conventional compounded XY tables where one axis is being carried by another. As a result, Planar XY table offers greater reliability and performance realized through design simplification and elimination of wear-prone components
Planar XY Table consists of moving element called forcer which glides on the frictionless air bearings over the special “waffle-like” surface called platen. Planar forcer contains two or four linear motoring modules oriented 90 degrees to each other.
Planar XY table can operate in any orientation (side wall, upside-down). Multiple Motors can be installed and operated independently on a single platen for high throughput and flexibility in many robotic automation applications.
