Cross Sections – The cross sections of the Velmex linear stages are a key differentiation. While the three Velmex linear stages all have bases with dovetail ways, they each have a different cross-section profile. (images above) The sliders (carriages) each ride on the ways differently.
Velmex Controls include VXM™ Controllers for easy control of single or multi-axis systems and VRO™ Readouts for ultra-precise position information. AC and DC motors; and linear, magentic and rotary encoders are also available.
