Tips for Designing Clean Room Equipment

Mechanical components intended to run in clean rooms for wafer fabrication must comply with uniform industry standards that dictate the number and size of particles they can generate.

As the computer and electronics industries pack more circuits on semiconductor wafers, particle generation in the clean rooms where they are processed becomes more critical with each generation.  In many applications, mechanical positioning stages are a large contributor to contamination.  Suppliers are required to follow special design criteria that ensure a positioning stage’s cleanliness according to certain standards…

Custom Rotary Positioning Stages from Bell Everman

A guide to ServoBelt Rotary and Direct Drive Theta modification

While off-the-shelf rotary stages will do the job in most cases, sometimes your application requirements call for a customized stage.  It may be something as simple as a special bolt hole pattern on the top of the stage.  Or you may need a way to secure a workpiece in the stage center opening.  Or you may need to squeeze a rotary positioning device into a tight space.

Whatever your requirements, we can help.  We’ve introduced accessories and modular design features that make it easy to customize our standard Servo-Belt Rotary (SBR) and Direct Drive Theta (DDT) rotary stages. And in cases where our standard rotary platforms can’t be modified to fit your requirements, we can often design and build one-of-a-kind rotary motion systems to your specifications.

Submersible/Harsh Environment Linear Shaft Motor

Nippon Pulse Linear Shaft Motor Family

The Linear Shaft Motor, from Nippon Pulse America, has no backlash, no wear and provides extremely smooth motion.  Because the Linear Shaft Motor is a simple mechanical design consisting of only a forcer (coils) and magnetic shaft, it is virtually maintenance free, creates minimal noise and operates well in harsh and wash down environments.

The Linear Shaft Motor is also an ideal replacement for more traditional linear motion systems including ball-screws, belt drives, piezo motors, u-channel motors, and rack and pinion linear actuators.  The Linear Shaft Motor provides greater energy efficiency, precision, accuracy, repeatability, and cost efficiency than similar linear systems.

Miniature Voice Coil Motor Stage by Akribis Systems

Akribis MGV Series

Akribis MGV Series

The MGV is a compact series of voice coil stages by Akribis Systems that features cross roller bearings and an encoder resolution of up to 20nm.  Due to the direct coupling of the load directly to the motor it is suitable for high seed and high acceleration applications.  Akribis voice coil motors are one of the simplest actuators available and consist of two components; the magnet and the coil.

The MGV stage is constructed with an ironless linear motor and can achieve excellent repeatability and accuracy.  Supporting strokes of up to 30mm, the MGV stage is suitable in a wide range of applications including:  Semiconductor, Optics, Photonics, Life Sciences, Medical, Aerospace and Measurement & Metrology.

Benefits of Direct Drive Voice Coil Motor Technology

  • Direct drive
  • Zero cogging
  • Zero backlash
  • Suitable for high speed/high acceleration applications
  • Smooth motion even at low speeds
  • Low velocity ripple
  • Eliminates coupling devices
  • Requires no maintenance

Configure-To-Order Screw Driven Positioning Stages from Lintech


Screw Driven Positioning Stages
from Lintech are used in applications where accuracy & repeatability are more critical than axial thrust forces.  The base, carriage, and all sub-assembly components are precision machined which contribute to the accuracy and repeatability of the stage.  These positioning tables use either an acme or ball screw as the drive mechanism.  Square or round rail linear bearings are used to carry the user load.  These custom configured screw driven stages allow the user load to be positioned very accurately & repeatedly.

Lintech Screw Driven Positioning Stages feature:

  • Designed to maximize performance while minimizing physical size and cos
  • Optional: Waycovers, EOT & Home switches, linear & rotary encoders, power-off electric brakes, motor wrap packages and versatile mounting brackets for multiple axis applications
  • Over 30 different acme & ball screw options that offer high efficiencies and long life at an economical price
  • Constructed with a precision machined aluminum carriage which has threaded stainless steel inserts for high strength and wear life
  • A variety of NEMA and metric motor mounts and couplings
