MDE330 - Elliot Gold™ Series XYZ Flexure Stage

MDE330 - Elliot Gold™ Series XYZ Flexure Stage

Elliot Gold™ Series XYZ Flexure Stage without Adjusters   


  • 2 mm coarse travel per axis
  • 4.5 kg load capacity
  • Minimal arcuate displacement
  • Orthogonal alignment grooves
  • Use any combination of Elliot Scientific adjuster types
  • Ultra-stable patented design XYZ flexure stage

The MDE330 flexure stage is supplied without adjusters, thereby permitting the user to choose and fit a different type of adjuster on each axis to match individual performance and cost requirements. For example, 1 manual and 2 piezo adjusters or 2 high-precision and 1 piezo. The MDE330 is compatible with all Elliot Scientific adjusters.

The Elliot Gold™ series XYZ flexure stage is a development of the immensely popular original stage invented and patented by Martock Design, now a subsidiary of Elliot Scientific. Flexure stages are ideal for high precision 3D device manipulation.

Typical applications include fibre launch systems for single and multimode fibre, polarisation maintaining fibre, and waveguide alignment. Elliot Martock flexure-based systems can be found in many labs around the world involved in quantum photonics, bioscience research, and optical networking. The arcuate displacement (vertical displacement due to longitudinal flexure motion) is up to 4 times better than competing products.

The optical axis height of all accessories is 18 mm above the top plate, placing the optical axis 94 mm above the bottom of the stage.
