BARRINGTON, N.J., May 5, 2010 — Edmund Optics Inc. has released its TechSpec tip-tilt stages for tilt control of optics and mounting posts in two axes. The stages are constructed from black anodized aluminum and are available in three sizes: 30 mm square, 40 mm square and 70 mm square. Each size is offered in a choice of English or metric hole pattern configurations. A precision micrometer drive provides good movement repeatability. The high-resolution stages are mechanically compatible to other TechSpec stages and are designed to integrate with other TechSpec components, providing flexibility and allowing the user to create any number of axes in different configurations. Integrated with two micrometer drives, one for each axis, they offer good resolution with tip-tilt motion of up to 6°. A bottom adapter plate, sold separately, is required to mount the 30- and 40-mm stages to a standard breadboard.
