OWIS® high-precision linear stages LIMES 84N

For years, they are among the best sellers under the high-precision linear stages – the OWIS® LIMES series.

With their excellent positioning properties they are particularly suitable for use in research and development, where highest precision is required. The LIMES series are likewise ideal for industrial use – by their suitability for continuous operation. After a comprehensive revision the motorized positioners are available from the first quarter 2016.

The currently available LIMES 80 and LIMES 84 were given a face-lift and are replaced by the new LIMES 84N series.

The original size could be kept equally compact, whereby the construction height of the LIMES 84N is only 38 mm. Consequently, the new high-precision linear stages are particularly suitable for use in limited spaces. The LIMES 84N motor is almost completely encapsulated, so that damper and encoder cannot be damaged. Furthermore, with this series the LIMES with step motor and the LIMES with DC servo motor use the same 26 pin connection. With the new mounting grid, installation of the LIMES 84N is possible without removing the cover. In addition, the existing mounting grid of the previous LIMES 80 and LIMES 84 series is still available.

The new LIMES 84N are characterized by their high-quality and technologically advanced components. The integrated ball screw and recirculating ball bearing guides enable a highly accurate positioning with very long life. The backlash-free guides ensure optimal motion as well as high load capacity. The highly resistant black anodized protective coating of the aluminium parts prevents almost all reflections or stray light.

The LIMES 84N are available in different travel ranges of up to 270 mm, with 2-phase step motor or DC servo motor with encoder. All linear stages of the product line LIMES 84N can be combined and mounted arbitrarily, and thus allow flexible working. Vacuum-prepared versions are available on request. Of course, the LIMES 84N are of quality „Made in Germany“.
