Manual Linear XY Axis Translation Stages

Manual Linear XY Axis Translation Stages

XY-axis manual linear translation stages are designed to provide precise, high-resolution travel over two orthogonal linear degrees of freedom. More importantly, however, they constrain any form of movement in the other 4 degrees of freedom: pitch, yaw, roll, as well as z-axis translation.  They are frequently used in applications such as microscopy, metrology, optical fiber alignment, optical delay lines, interferometry, or wherever exact linear position is required.  Industries that utilize linear stages include research, bio-medical, life sciences, astronomy, metrology, semiconductor, and more.  OptoSigma offers the largest selection of xy-axis linear translation stages to meet virtually any application.  For example,  we have the most bearing options of any manufacturer, including  EXC™ precision bearing, ball bearing, crossed-roller bearing, linear bearing, and dovetail bearing.   If one of our many catalog stages does not meet your requirements, send us a request for a custom stage.  OptoSigma is, after all, the industry leader in translation stages.

    Description

    Piezo-Assist Linear Stages are two-axis manual linear translation stages, equipped with piezo-assist adjustment. The mechanism is a lead zirconate titanate (PZT) crystal, which proportionally changes its static dimension when an external electric field is applied to it. The piezo adjustment is designed to be used in conjunction with the micrometer to extend the stage resolution from 10μm down to <20nm.  Piezo-assist stages are frequently used in applications such as microscopy, metrology, optical fiber alignment, interferometry, or wherever submicron linear positioning is required.  Industries that utilize linear stages include research, bio-medical, life sciences, astronomy, metrology, semiconductor, and more.  Piezo-Assist Linear Stages are available in 25, 40, and 60-millimeter platform sizes and are specifically designed to be stacked with other linear and rotation stages having the same size and mounting threads. Controllers are available in 1 axis and 3-axis versions.  If one of our many catalog piezo-assist stages does not meet your requirements, just send us a request for a custom version.  OptoSigma is, after all, the industry leader in translation stages.
