XY Stages

Positioning Systems - XY StagesThe fields of application for our XY stages KT and GT are widely spread.  They are used where highest requirements on straightness deviations, noise behaviour or positioning accuracy are demanded.

Stepping motors and backlash-free recirculating ball spindles are used as standard drive. Due to the usage of selective cross roller guides, highest accuracys are achieved which are recorded in the final check.

For the adaption and mounting of the XY stages, several threads in raster layout are provided so that they can be combined with various other stages, adaptor plates, angles and stands to multi-axis positioning systems.

XY Stages in closed frame design GT

XY Stage in closed frame design GT

The closed frame XY stages are especially designed to provide ultra high accuracy in compact dimensions. By the modular concept, they can be equipped with different motors and measuring systems. The close frame XY stages are particularly suitable for incident light and topographic applications.

• normalized aluminium alloy, black anodized

• cross roller guides, anti-backlash pre-loaded

• when equipped with motorized drives,
  anti-backlash pre-loaded ball screws are used

XY Stage in open frame design KT

The open frame XY stages KT are especially designed to provide high accuracy in compact dimensions. By the modular concept, they can be equipped with different motors and measuring systems. The open frame XY stages are particularly suitable for transmitted light applications.

• normalized aluminium alloy, black anodized

• cross roller guides, anti-backlash pre-loaded

• when equipped with motorized drives,
  anti-backlash pre-loaded ball screws are used

• when hand driven, with quick-release for coarse adjustment
  and +/- 5 mm fine-pitch thread

• plane parallel glass top to put on the specimen
