Translation Stages 7T173 allow manual linear motion. Our standard micrometers 9S75M are used as driving screws. Customer may specify other screws, e.g. with non-matching travel range to save space. A Platform is spring preloaded against the driving screw to provide high resolution, low backlash, smooth and accurate motion. An array of mounting holes on a platform and on a base provide a variety of convenient mounting options, including mounting on 3MP series Posts.
For quick X-Y assembly and for Z (7T173-10; 7T173-20) stages may be stacked (see drawings) using connecting cones 3CC4 (Ø7.1 holes with fixing screws on the sides are provided). For very reliable X-Y-Z construction Z axis could be connected to the X-Y assembly by angle bracket 2AB173.
2CP173-20 connecting plate for stacking the narrow stages in X-Y motion.
