flexdrive-4 Features & Benefits

The flexdrive™-4 series is an expansion of the product line to a small compact size and the modular design makes it an ideally suited translation module for a larger number of applications requiring precision, reliability and ease of integration. Engineers, system integrators and designer prefer the flexdrive-4 for their superb performance, flexibility to match to the application and assured longevity.

The flexdrive-4 series is a very compact precision stage based on a monolithic high strength aluminum alloy with a 48 x 100 mm envelope and travel range from 50-450 mm.  The payload capability is rated at 25 kg (55 lbs).  The superb positioning performance is supported by square rails with recirculating low noise linear ball bearings and a precision ground ball screw drive.


The flexdrive-series positioning tables have been a very successful translator product for two decades and are recognized for their sustained positioning performance and longevity in many applications like laser machining systems, bio-medical, metrology, instrumentation and automation.  The outstanding selection criteria are the reason why professionals prefer the clean, modern international metric design of the flexdrive-series stages by NUTEC.  The designer’s preference for these modular concept positioners can be attributed to configurability for specific application requirements, the excellent specifications and the sustained performance coupled with longevity.
