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.

Flexure Stages & Precision Positioning Solutions106

  • Flexure Stages: Manual or Piezo
  • Fibre Launch Solutions
  • Six Axis Positioners
  • Automated Alignment Controllers
  • Accessories


Elliot|Martock delivers high precision device manipulation through its range of Elliot Gold™ series XYZ flexure stages. Derived from the immensely popular original stage invented and patented by Martock Design, the range enables fibre launch systems for single-mode, multimode, and polarisation maintaining fibres, as well as waveguide alignment. The arcuate displacement (vertical displacement due to longitudinal flexure motion) is up to 4 times better than competing products.

Miniature & OEM Stages89

  • Ultra Small Stages - 3 mm Travel
  • Very Small Stages - 5 mm Travel
  • Small Stages - 10 mm Travel
  • X, XY, XZ, YZ & XYZ options
  • Rotation & Tilt Stages
  • XY Lens Positioners

Elliot Scientific is a name synonymous with one of the most comprehensive ranges of compact linear stages available. Manufactured by Elliot Scientific under the Elliot|Martock brand, these precision engineered dovetail slides are offered in a range of sizes and travel ranges with a smooth backlash-free motion. Different configurations, such as X, XY and XYZ, rotation and tilt, and vacuum compatible versions are available. Ideal for mission critical applications where precision and stability are paramount.

Systems for Waveguide Alignment5

  • Multiple-axis manipulation
  • Complete Professional Workstation
  • Central Workstation
  • Long or short travel options
  • Rack & Pinion Slide

Elliot Scientific has designed a twin flexure stage based assembly for the precise alignment of both input and output fibres to an optical waveguide device. The MDE881 Professional Workstation is offered in a choice of standard or long travel motion. For applications where the geometry of the MDE881 is not suitable, Elliot Scientific offers the system as key component parts to allow custom set-ups to be configured on an optical table or breadboard.

Manual & OEM Adjusters11

  • Precision adjusters
  • Ultrafine adjusters
  • Simple adjusters
  • Miniature adjusters
  • Micrometers

Elliot|Martock includes a comprehensive range adjusters for stages, slides and OEM applications. Manual adjusters range from simple thumbwheels with up to 12 mm of travel, to high precision ultra-fine micrometers.

Piezo & Motorised Adjusters EM11

  • 25 µm travel piezo adjuster
  • 100 µm long travel piezo adjuster
  • 200 µm very long travel adjuster
  • Motor driven adjuster: 8 mm travel
  • Accessories

Elliot Scientific offers several piezo adjusters for applications requiring greater resolution than that achievable manually. Where precision hands free operation or automation of the positioning system is required, our controller and flexure stage packages provide a highly robust and accurate solution. Piezo operation can be via an Elliot Scientific E1100 or other compatible 0-150 volt controller system. A motorised adjuster solution is also available for applications requiring lower resolution.
