Open Stages (also called Aperture Stages)

We design, develop, and manufacture low profile open xy-axis stages.  Below is an example of a very compact assembly used in an imaging system.  The challenge was to provide very smooth almost frictionless motion while electronic imaging sensors are acquiring vital sample data.

Open XY - Stage

Custom Sub-Assembly

Designed for very smooth travel and low friction. Designed to fit within small spaces.

X travel = 25mm and Y travel = 25mm

This two axis stage is best suited for optical scanning systems for life science lab applications where very precise movement and high repeatability are required.

Can be made ready for vacuum and cleanroom environments.

Aperture Stages

For new designs customer specifications and requirements often provide a good starting point. Ultimately it's the first prototype builds that flush out additional requirements.

We reserved a portion of our production area exculsively for building prototypes. The lead engineer takes "hands-on" responsiblity for the first prototpye.

Large Optic Window

The open stage provides a large port or window for direct optical viewing or laser beam passage.

Cross roller bearing sets allow for frictionless movement of the window for surface scanning.
