Motion Control • Positioning Tables

Used for a linear motion applications with features including direct-drive air bearing, mechanical bearing deisng and worm-gear-driven mechanical bearings.

Used to position sensors, automate pick-and-place operations, or perform light-duty machining, positioning tables are rotary or linear, and low-profile or multi-axis in design. Available with ring systems, slide rings, track systems, and clamping torques, some positioning table can travel up to 48 inches and feature a load capacity of 2,000 lbs.Manufacturers of positioning tables include: Aeroflex, Airpel, Bel-Air, Korfund Dynamics, Macron, Vibration Mountings & Controls.
