Single Axis Small Micropositioner Stage
- Stainless steel body
- Small dovetail slides
- Wide range of configurations
- Very smooth backlash-free motion
- Slide surfaces precision lapped in matched pairs
The MDE255 is a small, single axis micropositioner with simple adjustment for linear translation stage applications in physics experiments or optical systems.
A number of papers have been published by scientists around the globe who have used an Elliot|Martock MDE255 Single Axis Micropositioner stage within their research. Here is an example:
Variants, Options, and Accessories
Note: Surface mating with these micropositioners must be truly flat. Unflat surfaces or overtightened screws will cause the slide motion to be jerky and stiff due to distortion. Dovetail slides, unlike miniature ball slides, are unlikely to be permanently damaged by temporary distortion, as the load is supported on a comparatively large area.
