H2W Releases DRS-206-05-012-01-EX Dual Rail Positioning Stage

H2W Technologies has released DRS-206-05-012-01-EX dual rail positioning stage for applications that require long travel distances. It uses a cog-free brushless linear motor to generate a continuous force of 12.4 lbs [55.6 N] and a peak force of 37.4 lbs [167 N] with a total stroke length of 210 in [5341 mm]. The non-contact 1.0-micron resolution encoder allows for precise positioning. The stage is capable of speeds in excess of 200 ips [5 m/s]. It is guided by dual rigid recirculating ball linear bearings.

The entire stage is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion, thus reducing the overall weight of the system and easily allowing for long strokes and prevents the need for reassembly at the customer facility. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carrier. It has end-of-travel rubber bumper stops.


  • Low-profile
  • High Speed
  • Fast Lead times
  • High acceleration
  • Compact cross section
  • Custom strokes and force configurations available
