Demand the gold standard in quality and performance! Don’t settle for an inferior non-descript imitation of the original flexure

Back in 1973, Martock Design Ltd (a subsidiary of Elliot Scientific) began developing and manufacturing a range of high precision instruments and equipment to meet the demands of the research and then telecom communities. Today, the latest generation of ELLIOT|MARTOCK XYZ flexure stages continues to be the standard for the research community and for customers who demand the very best in stability, resolution, flexibility and overall performance.

To complement the worldwide success of the ELLIOT|MARTOCK “Gold” flexure stages, a range of micropositioning stages and accessories has been designed to expand the range of solutions which ELLIOT|MARTOCK can provide, from OEM micro-stages and adjusters to complete fibre alignment tools and auto-alignment systems such as the successful DAli-3 fibre auto-alignment system.

Vibration Isolation Solutions7

Vibration noise is a nuisance for many precision applications in science and industry. Passing road, rail or air traffic, building resonances, co-workers, air conditioning, lifts and other machinery and equipment all pose a threat to your sensitive instruments. This could be a high-powered microscope, a delicate micromachining system, a life science experiment, or a laser-based optical set-up.

Elliot Scientific offers a choice of both passive and active vibration isolation systems from leading manufacturers for your application. Whether you require a simple benchtop platform, an optical table, workstation, or custom system, we can help. We also supply Hi-Fi audiophiles with affordable antivibration solutions for decoupling high-end turntables so as to get the most from their vinyl.
