Compact, reliable, highly precise: SmarActs MLS linear stages

The MLS product series featuring direct drives unites highest positioning accuracy with high mileage and speed in a small space. The contact-free drive principle enables virtually maintenance-free runtimes of hundreds of metres.

The MLS product series is ideal for industrial applications where high speed, force and nanometer-precise motion must be paired with high duty cycle and durability. The stages are equipped with non-contact linear motors, opening up a field of applications where highly dynamic processes require high speed and nanometer accuracy at the same time. The electromagnetic drive enables speeds of up to 1 m/s. In addition, they are durable and virtually maintenance-free. Their compact size ensures seamless integration into existing systems.


  • Dimensions: 32 x 52 x 15 mm³ to 92 x 122 x 17 mm³
  • Positioning resolution: <10 nm
  • Repeatability: <45 nm (unidirectional)
  • Speed: up to 900 mm/s

Let's talk about your application at our booth 2-515.
