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.

{{{Device}}} stages are designed to be secured using 4 metric or imperial socket cap screws. The following screw sizes should be used:

  • Metric: M6 screws, 25mm or longer
  • Imperial: 1/4 screws, 1" or longer

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.
