  • Compact & low profile, the CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform delivers high precision, accuracy, & repeatability ideal for factory automation & semiconductor processing applications

    Apex, NC (January 14, 2016) — Griffin Motion, a precision motion equipment manufacturer that designs and develops extremely precise modular and application-specific motion solutions that deliver accuracies from microns to nanometers, announces its customizable, quick-ship CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform. Ideal for use in microscopy, inspection, wafer processing, microtiter plate processing, laser marking, and optical positioning applications, this compact, low profile, ball-screw-drive stage exhibits extraordinary levels of orthogonality (10 arcsec) and parallelism, enabling 150mm of precise XY travel with 10µm linear accuracy and 1µm linear repeatability. Capable of operating in any orientation, the platform can also attain high linear velocities of up to 150mm/sec, which is useful for factory automation and semiconductor processing equipment.

    Clean, compact, and low profile with an apertureless frame, the CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform features an integrated brushless servo motor directly coupled to zero backlash precision ground ball screws. The ball screws provide extremely smooth operation and velocity control, and this configuration allows for both tighter control loops and a smaller overall footprint than stages with motor couplings. Built for high duty cycles and long lifetime performance, the platform also features crossed roller bearings for smooth motion, a high resolution (0.1µm) linear SS scale encoder, optical limit switches with home, and optional brakes for added safety. Made in the USA, the precision XY motion platform measures 306mm (12.05”) x 358mm (14.10”) x 66mm (2.60”) with regard to length, width, and height.

    “High precision, accuracy, and repeatability are given expectations in the motion equipment industry,” said Josh Houghton, chief operating officer, Griffin Motion. “So, although our motion platforms are proven to deliver exceptional performance, what really differentiates us from our competitors is our ability to quickly customize our stages to suit individual client specifications, such as mounting hole position, at an outstanding price/performance ratio.”

    Standard lead-time for the CXY-BS Series 150mm Precision XY Motion Platform (CXY-C-150-BS-A-M-S-0-00) is four weeks, but expedited lead-times are available upon request.

  • Fully sealed & capable of high linear velocities up to 900mm/s, this compact, low-profile linear stage delivers exceptional accuracy, repeatability, & long-lifetime performance in a variety of factory automation & semiconductor processing applications

    Apex, NC (March 28, 2016) — Griffin Motion, a precision motion equipment manufacturer that designs and develops extremely precise modular and application-specific motion solutions that deliver accuracies from microns to nanometers, announces its high-speed LM3 Series 300mm-travel precision linear motion platform. Built for high duty cycles and long-lifetime precision performance in inspection, scanning, optical positioning, and laser marking and machining applications, these compact, low-profile linear motor stages exhibit exceptional levels of accuracy (15µm), repeatability (1µm), flatness (5µm), and straightness (5µm) with regard to travel, and attain high linear velocities up to 900mm/s, which is ideal for factory automation and semiconductor processing equipment.

    Additional features of the LM3 Series 300mm-travel precision linear motion stages include: ironless linear servomotors and recirculating ball linear ways, which enable extremely smooth motion and velocity control; hard coverings complete with side seals to satisfy the ingress protection demands of harsh industrial applications; a high-resolution (0.1µm) linear SS scale encoder; optical limit switches with home; and integrated cable management to simplify design-in. The series can also be stacked to create XY motion.

    “Two critical features that differentiate Griffin Motion platforms from the competition are the almost-unbeatable levels of precision, accuracy, and repeatability that they deliver at a comparably outstanding price/performance ratio, and our proven ability to quickly customize the stages with features such as customer-specified mounting holes or varied travel lengths, often within the span of our already relatively short lead-times,” said Josh Houghton, chief operating officer, Griffin Motion. “We also make it a point to imbue each stage with additional value — like the LM3 Series’ fully-sealed case and integrated cable management — to provide our customers with benefits that, while not necessarily critical, improve installation and performance.”

    Made in the USA, LM3 Series 300mm-travel precision linear motion platforms measure 530mm (20.866”) x 205.096mm (8.075”) x 62mm (2.441”) with regard to length, width, and height, and standard lead-time for the series is five weeks; although, expedited lead-times are available upon request.

  • Ideal for use in a variety of laboratory, factory automation, & semiconductor processing applications, RTS-DD Series rotary stages deliver superlative precision, accuracy, & repeatability at an unbeatable price/performance ratio within abbreviated lead-times

    Apex, NC (April 18, 2016) — Griffin Motion, a precision motion equipment manufacturer that designs and develops extremely precise modular and application-specific motion solutions that deliver accuracies from microns to nanometers, announces its high-precision, 360° continuous travel RTS-DD Series rotary motion platform. Exhibiting exceptional angular accuracy (30arcsec), repeatability (3arcsec), and resolution (0.324arcsec), in addition to high angular velocity (480deg/s), excellent axial and radial run-out (5µm), and exemplary wobble (10arcsec), RTS-DD Series rotary stages are ideal for use in a variety of laboratory, factory automation, and semiconductor processing applications, including: inspection, laser marking and machining, optical positioning, wafer alignment, and rate table, pan-and-tilt, and beam steering operations.

    RTS-DD Series precision rotary stages feature a compact, low profile design that helps minimize abbe errors when used in conjunction with another motion axis, and a brushless direct-drive servo motor that eliminates backlash and improves reliability by eliminating sliding friction throughout the stage. The series also features a high-resolution optical encoder with a precision index mark for homing, and a 30mm through-bore to enable the convenient routing of vacuum or high voltage lines for a wide range of wafer chucks.

    “RTS-DD Series precision rotary stages provide superlative precision, accuracy, and repeatability at an unbeatable price/performance ratio, and, by virtue of their clean, low-profile design and 30mm through-bore, enable easier and more convenient design-in than competing platforms,” said Josh Houghton, chief operating officer, Griffin Motion. “We can also customize RTS stages with customer-specified mounting holes and application-specific positioning resolution within standard, and often even expedited, lead-times.”

    Made in the USA, the compact and low profile RTS-DD Series precision rotary motion platforms measure 133mm (5.24”) x 110mm (4.33”) x 55mm (2.17”) with regard to length, width, and height. Standard lead-time for the series is four weeks, but expedited lead-times can be accommodated upon request.
