Through partnership and collaboration with customers, ALIO consistently provides cost-effective and timely ultra-precise motion control solutions for the most exacting applications. ALIO is synonymous with accuracy and innovation in ultra-precision motion control solutions. The company is driven by a peerless team of exceptional engineers that have an obsessive focus on nanometer-level motion control, customer success, and pushing the boundaries of what is perceived as possible.
Precision Crossed Roller Bearing Linear Stages
ALIO' Nano Precision XY Monolithic product is a 3-plate systems with unmatched 6-D performance. With years of testing, continually improving designs and unique manufacturing protocols, the ALIO precision crossed roller bearing stages have no equal for quality and performance. Our linear stage product family, as shown below with counterbalance for Z applications, begin with 25 mm travel and go up to 400 mm of travel with motor and encoder options to fit your application needs.
Linear CM Servo Motor
ALIO designed CM linear servo stages for customers that need less costly True Nano® precision. CM servo motor stages still have the ALIO 6-D precision with less linear force for smaller and lower acceleration applications. The stage family uses the precision anti-skid bearings as all other ALIO mechanical bearing products with the same 25 mm to 400 mm travel ranges.
Z-Lift and Vertical Axis Motion Systems
ALIO Industries’ Z-Lift motion platforms were created to replace the inaccuracies of the ever present Z-Wedge vertical stages as well as reduce the footprint and improve performance of linear stages mounted in the vertical orientation. Every component in a motion stage adds to the total error. Since Z-wedges have a minimum of three machined components with complex angles, three sets of bearings, a motor via a coupling and an encoder, the result is a very inaccurate stage.
ALIO answers this with a family of very high accuracy, high repeatable vertical stages.
XY Linear System
ALIO’s XY monolithic True Nano® motion systems performance is unequaled for 6-D Nano Precision®. With nanometer straightness and flatness you can be assured that your point precision is True Nano®. This stage family comes with enclosed or open center versions from 50mm travel to 450mm travel. Standard axis bi-directional repeatability is less than 50 nanometers with optional 10 nanometers bi-directional repeatability for demanding metrology or manufacturing needs. Stages can come with NIST traceable data assuring nano precision not just marketing data sheet optimism.
µ-II Motion Systems
ALIO has introduced its new µII (micro II) product (High Precision Motion Systems) line to compete in the lower cost, lower precision micron (µm) world. Demands for low cost, mid-precision, reliable long travel stages influenced ALIO decision as well as our loyal customer base to move into this market. As with all ALIO products, this line was designed using ALIO’s uncompromising standards of “quality first” thus providing the customer with long term reliable operation.
These easily configurable stages can be used as a single axis, stacked in XY orientations or complete gantry operation. ALIO’s controls platforms are easily set up to handle the complex motion requirements for rigid gantry motion.
The µII recirculating ball rail bearing stage line comes standard in sizes of 100mm up to 1 meter thus providing the end-user a solution for many applications.
