Nanomotion has added a Z-wedge vertical stage to its FB range of compact nanometer-level micropositioning mechanics. Available in the UK through Heason Technology Ltd., the stages complement a modular and compact range of linear, rotary and goniometric stages that together provide multiaxis and nanometer-level translation in all six degrees of freedom. The FBZ075-10 has a classic upper and lower wedge design featuring a precision-grade cross roller bearing arrangement that maintains stage stiffness, with a side-mounted ceramic motor driving the bottom wedge via a ceramic strip. A linear encoder, available with optional resolution from 5 to 100 nm, is mounted directly onto the vertical translation element to eliminate potential wedge angle errors. The moving top plate provides full and easy access from all sides.
