This positioner allows users to position up to 7 kg (15.4 lbs) of normal load on the available three standard travel lengths (5 mm, 15 mm and 25 mm). The MX45S can be supplied with a high-efficiency leadscrew or a high-precision ballscrew, both of which are capable of producing 40 N of thrust at linear velocities of 20 mm/s and 30 mm/s respectively. 

Designed for applications requiring small incremental movements, micron repeatabilities, smooth motion and high stiffness such as biomedical imaging, fiber optic alignment, semiconductor inspection and laser diode research.

Additional design features include: an ultra-compact profile (25 mm high X 45 mm wide X 65, 75 or 90 mm long); stepper motor driven; standard multi-axis configurations.
Options include; rotary and linear encoders; digital limit/home sensor packs; and the ability to order and receive one of 11 pre-engineered multi-axis systems.
