These translation stages are designed for positioning heavy loads in X, Y and Z directions precisely without play and wobble. Pre-loaded roller bearing guides are used for all the three axes for friction free and play less movement. Even with heavy loads, movement is smooth and effortless. Worm gear drive is used in Z axis where as lead screw drive is used for X and Y axes. Top surface of the stage is provided with M6 tapped holes at 25 mm grid. Linear scale with vernier is provided for repeatable positioning with measurements. The stage is constructed in aluminium alloy and given black anodized finish. These stages can be made available in various sizes, travel ranges, heights and load capacity.
If the travel requirement is below 50 mm, X and Y axes can be driven by micrometers with 0.01 mm resolution. In this case, more precise positioning is possible compared to lead screw drive and vernier reading. Another feature of this stage is locking facility after positioning. Lock is normally provided by the side of the stage with appropriately sized hand knobs. Lock prevents accidental movements of the stage from its fixed position. Holmarc manufactures custom stages as well in this configuration.
