Mid-Travel Linear Stages Handle Heavy Loads

MKS Instruments’ Newport MTN-BHLS Series mid-travel linear stages feature a robust, all-steel construction, high load capacity, and reliable stiffness and thermal stability. Available in 100 mm, 200 mm, and 300 mm travel versions, the MTN-BLHS stages can bear up to 100 kg centered load, when mounted horizontally. The axial load capacity is 20 kg.


Linear guides guarantee a smooth and accurate motion trajectory while the non-migrating ball cage design prevents drift and ensures high dynamics and a long lifetime. For additional information, peruse the Newport MTN-VLHS series datasheets.
