Specifications

Features

Designed to be Reconfigured to Left or Right-Handed

These extended range stages are designed with symmetrical features allowing them to be reconfigured for left or right-handed operation.  This video shows a 423 stage being reconfigured to have the micrometer accessible from the opposite side of the stage.  This is needed to allow the stage to be used for vertical travel but is also useful for improving adjustment accessibility.  Note, also, that the lock and the micrometer locations can be switched.

Ball-bearings Provide Smooth Linear Translation

Ball bearings in these stages reduce friction compared with rolling motion to guide linear translation. Although the guide ways are externally loaded to eliminate unwanted runout in the bearings, friction remains negligible to provide smooth travel over the entire range. The motion of each axis can easily be locked in place.

423 XYZ Stage Stack Assembly

These extended range stages are designed to be easily configured into multi-axis stage stacks like the XYZ assembly shown in this video using three 423 stages with SM-25 micrometers and a 360 Series angle bracket.

XZθY Stage Configuration

Easily combine and stack these light-weight stages together for a multi-axis system like the XZθY configuration shown using 481 Rotation Stages and 360 Series Angle Brackets and 423 series stages.

Vertical Stage Configuration

By using a 90 degree angle bracket, you can configure a 423 series stage for z-axis motion.

Cost Saving Stage and Micrometer Bundles

We offer a special bundle of three 423 or M-243 stages with the recommended SM-25 actuators included.  When you purchase the bundle you get the three SM-25 micrometers for free!

Compatible With Manual or Motorized Actuators

These stages are sold without actuators, allowing you to customize the translation for your desired precision. Actuators can be easily and quickly interchanged for any necessary adaptations after installation. Adjustment screws, Vernier micrometers, differential micrometers, and motorized actuators all fit the stainless steel actuator mounts on these stages.
