Industrial-Level Build and Performance

With a focus on high throughput, heavy load capacity, and extreme durability, the IDL-V vertical stage has been designed for the most rigorous demands of precision industrial laser microprocessing. For other travel ranges or sizes, please contact Newport.

Matched to IDL Linear Translation Stages

Based on a customer-proven and modular wedge design, the IDL280-Z20 provides sub-micron MIM, smooth motion and stiff construction for use with high dynamic performance XY systems. In particular, it is matched to the IDL280 industrial-grade linear motor translation stages, making it easy to securely construct multi-axis systems, and provides unobstructed access to the payload from any side.
