XYZ Linear Stages – Motorized Multi-Axis Precision Positioning Systems

XYZ translation stages (3-axis stages) provide precision multi-axis motion in 3 linear degrees of freedom. These positioning systems are often used in precision automation applications, in optics, micro-robotics, imaging and highly accurate mechanical assembly. All PI XYZ motorized positioning stages can be computer controlled with a variety of motion controllers, including simple bench top devices and advanced industrial controllers with EtherCat connectivity. 

PI provides multi-axis gantry solutions, X-Y-Z combinations assembled from individual linear stages and custom systems with custom bracketry and guaranteed orthogonality. 

Rotational axes can also be integrated, for 5 and 6-axis motion applications, hexapod parallel kinematic positioning systems are recommended.
