Engineering isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition. We can customize nearly everything we sell, from modifying housings and mechanical interfaces to fine-tuning performance parameters. Interested in custom assemblies?

Ball-Screw and Lead-Screw Stages

Shasta linear guide stage

Vertex ball-screw and lead-screw stages feature ready-to-install assemblies that deliver high performance at an affordable price. Our catalog includes a large number of highly configurable stock products, giving customers a choice of nut type, thread pitch, leads, and motor mounts. Because all Vertex products are manufactured in the United States by Motion Solutions, we can customize to meet specialty requirements and on very short lead times.

  • Deep catalog of configurable stock parts
  • Highly customizable
  • Repeatability ranging from 10 µm to 100 µm (higher performance available upon request)
  • Available in volumes ranging from 1 to 1000 units
  • High-quality products at OEM-friendly pricing
  • Short lead times

Shasta (LGS) Linear-Guide Stages

stacked Shasta linear guide stages for multiaxis positioning The LGS Series provide a number of configurable multi-axis orientations and custom offerings right down to the wire.

Our Vertex Shasta (LGS) linear-guide stages offer high-performance linear positioning at an economical price. Ball-screw and/or lead-screw versions are available to meet your application needs.

The Shasta family includes 60-mm-wide models in the industry-standard heights of 25 mm (Shasta 25) and 33 mm (Shasta 33). To provide greater stability for oversized loads, the Shasta W33 features a rail spacing of 120 mm. Repeatability ranges from 10 µm to 100 µm.

Denali HD (HDS) Heavy Duty Linear-Guide Stages


Our Vertex Denali HDS stages are robust, rigid, budget-friendly positioners built around linear guides with load ratings of 24.2 kN (5440 lbs) per block. They are available in lengths of up to 2 m, with critical speeds of 6000 RPM. Denali HDS stages are designed to position high masses, high moment loads, and variable center-of-gravity loads to repeatabilities as tight as 10 µm. These highly configurable stages can be combined in XY and XYZ assemblies.

Because we build the stages in-house, users have many options, starting with a choice of standard or high-axial-thrust versions. Other options include choice of leads, motor mounts, cover types, and a hand-cranked version. Like other Vertex products, stages from our Denali HD line can be customized to serve particular needs.
