Edmund Optics has introduced its TechSpec single-axis translation stages featuring a crossed-roller guide system. Their single-piece design combines the top and bottom plate with the guide rails, and their positioning has a straight-line accuracy of 2 μm. Offered in either English or metric configurations with solid tabletop and through-hole models, the stages are available in 30-, 40-, 70- and 125-mm versions. Each is engineered to integrate with the other sizes and with other TechSpec components, allowing various system arrangements in up to six-axis configurations. Applications include laser and vision systems, microscopy and automation.
