The Model XYZ 2000 Series translation stage was intended for moving optics and microscopes around. This unit is capable of handling loads up to 50 lbs and moving in increments as small as .0005 mm or half a micron. This unit is being used for production probing of MEMS and LEDS in large manufacturing firms. You can use our control or build your own to move the high resolution steppers. Gearboxes are available for smaller moves. We have more options available to attach Navitar and Optem microscopes and accessories. Theta plates are another option for adjusting the orthogonality of the x and y travel.
