Product Description Specifications Downloads Quote / Order
  • Ideal for scanning applications or high-resolution positioning
  • Cleanroom compatible
  • Size of the motion platform to 300 mm × 300 mm
  • Travel ranges to 1 m
  • Load capacity to 775 kg
  • Straightness / flatness to 0.5 μm per 25 mm
  • Pitch / roll / yaw to 1.2 µrad per 25 mm

Linear air bearings of the PIglide RB series are exactly right for applications that need smooth, precise, linear motion. The air bearing modules replace ball or crossed roller guides and are easy to integrate. They offer improved straightness, angular deviation, and repeatability compared to stage units with ball guides, especially for travel ranges longer than 100 mm.

Because air bearings are basically friction free, they work without stiction on approach or during operation, even under maximum load. Air bearings work without making contact and with purified air, and are virtually maintenance and wear free.
