Physical Installation

Tip lightbulb symbol.png Tip: To obtain the best pitch, roll, yaw and runout performance, mount the stage to a known flat, stiff surface. Our tests were performed on a granite surface plate, grade A flatness.

Warning exclamation.png Stability Hazard! Ensure the stage is fastened to a secure surface before mounting a load on the carriage. Ensure loads are mounted securely to the carriage of the stage before operating.

Warning exclamation.png Mounting and Maintenance Hazard! For operator safety, the {{{Device}}} should always be un-powered during all cleaning, maintenance, and stage or load mounting operations. A powered stage could exert high forces and move at high speeds very suddenly if accidentally given a move command.

Secure {{{Device}}} stages with M6 socket cap screws, 30 mm or longer. It is recommended to use as many mounting holes as possible to maximize device stiffness.

XY Assemblies

Warning exclamation.png Pinch Hazard! {{{Device}}} stages can create pinch hazards between the upper-axis and lower-axis stages when mounted in an XY configuration. Make sure to keep hands clear when powering up the stages.

{{{Device}}} stages can be mounted directly in XY configurations. {{{Device}}} stages feature precision machined reference features to allow for optimal orthogonality between two stages in an XY configuration.
