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.
Applications range from fibre launch systems for single-mode, multimode and polarisation maintaining fibres as well as waveguide alignment, through to the manipulation of microstructures in bioscience. 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.
