Product Portfolio
  • Actuators

  • Aerotech's linear actuators are faster than a ball screw and more accurate than a belt drive. The LMA and LMAC series linear actuators harness the speed, acceleration, and accuracy capability of a linear motor for the latest in high-throughput linear actuator technology.
    These linear actuators are ideal for pick-and-place machines, gantry axes, shuttle stages, assembly machines, or as a general-purpose positioner, wherever you might need a linear actuator.
    Since the LMA and LMAC series linear actuators integrate the mechanical and electrical components, they eliminate the guesswork involved with choosing bearings, motors, encoders, and the other components required for a linear motor system.
    This makes the LMA and LMAC series linear actuators superior to the traditional linear actuators on the market.
      • LMA and LMAC Linear Actuators

      • Travel: ≤1000 mm
        Resolution: 10 nm-1.0µm
        Speed: 5 m/s
  • Air Bearing Stages

  • Aerotech air bearing tables incorporate over three decades of knowledge we have in designing high precision motion control and positioning systems.
    Driven by our brushless linear servomotors, Aerotech air bearings are perfect in semiconductor equipment, fiberoptics, photonics, and other critical industrial automation applications. Our air bearings incorporate an active preload on both vertical and horizontal surfaces.
    Opposing thin-film pressure maintains the bearing nominal gap tolerance.
    This design, in addition to the large air bearing surface that distributes the load over a large surface area, results in outstanding stiffness that is ideal for heavy or offset loading. Proprietary manufacturing techniques result in an air bearing with unsurpassed geometrical characteristics.
    The air bearing has an inherent averaging effect that maximizes performance. The thin film will fill small surface voids and other irregularities, yielding superior pitch, roll, yaw, and straightness and flatness specifications.

  • Aerotech’s “U-channel” brushless linear servomotors have proven ideal for robots, actuators, tables/stages, fiberoptics/photonics alignment and positioning, assembly, machine tools, semiconductor equipment, electronic manufacturing, vision systems, and in many other industrial automation applications. Aerotech linear motors are direct drive and consist of a noncontacting forcer coil and “U-channel” rare-earth magnet track. This design eliminates backlash, windup, wear, and maintenance issues associated with ball screw, belt, and rack and pinion based motion control and positioning systems. The noncontact design of the forcer and magnet track results in a maintenance-free system. Aerotech manufactures a complete line of linear motors to meet the needs of your industrial automation application.

  • Options and Accessories

    • ABF Air Bearing Filtration Unit

    • The air-bearing filtration unit (ABF) is used to clean and condition the compressed air used to supply air-bearing mechanics. It is compatible with both linear and rotary
      air-bearing stages.
    • ETM Enhanced Throughput Module

    • Aerotech's ETM modules help improve the positioning performance of high-dynamic motion systems by directly measuring the unwanted motion of the machine base and communicating it back to the controller.
      By working in concert with the Dynamic Controls Toolbox and the Aerotech controllers, they allow the servo system to do a superior job of executing the desired motion path.

    • Interpolation:
      x200 - x2000
      Output Signal:
      Square Wave,
      RS-422,TTL compatible
      Power Supply:
      5V ±5% (180 mA)
    • Joystick

    • The joystick has an easy plug-in connection. JI Model is sealed for harsh environments. Dedicated function buttons; extension cable available.
    • Terminal Block

    • 25/37 conductor, D-shell configuration; 50 conductor, dual row header configuration; convenient screw-terminal interface; DIN mount: Use to interface to PSO options.
    • Cables

    • Quickly interface to Aerotech controllers, drives, motors, and accessories. High-density cables reduce the need for multiple cables.
    • Filters

    • Aerotech’s UFM noise filter module is used to reduce conducted line noise generated by switching servo amplifiers.
      The UFM is used with any BA Series amplifier to conform to CE noise directives.
    • MPGA32 Pendant

    • A3200 multi-axis handhweel pendant provides a user friendly interface for the manual operation and setup of up to
      6 axes.
    • TM Series Transformers

    • The TM3 transformer module provides and distributes isolated AC and/or DC bus supply voltages for up to four Aerotech controllers.
      It is configured at the factory to provide 28 VAC, 56 VAC, 115 VAC, 40 VDC, 80 VDC, 160 VDC, or a combination of these voltages with a maximum transformer output power capability of 300 watts.
    • TV Series Transformers

    • High-quality isolation and autotransformers are fully compatible with Aerotech’s drive systems that require separate transformers. These are conservatively rated, open-frame units with mounting brackets and lug or screw terminals for easy installation.
