mechOnics, a specialist in micropositioning systems using piezo inertial drives, has expanded their range of stages. In addition to a comprehensive portfolio of X, XY, and XYZ miniature translation stages, Elliot Scientific is now able to offer a Monomode Coupler and an XYZ Positioner with up 10 mm travel. Stages utilise a directly driven slip/stick rod method that maintains position without power, and ensures zero backlash or rotation.
The MX 35 XYZ Positioner is a compact miniature translation stage system that offers up to 10 mm in all axes with a step resolution of approximately 10 nm depending on choice of controller. The stage can position itself at speeds up to 1.2 mm/s with an accuracy of 50 nm. A vacuum-ready version is available along with a smaller sibling in the MX 25 model that offers 2 mm of travel in all axes.
The MK 25 Monomode Coupler focusses a free-space laser beam onto an optical fibre by means of a compact piezo-driven aspheric lens equipped assembly. This allows for remote focusing and alignment of systems where traditional hand adjustment would be impractical.
