BARRINGTON, N.J., Feb. 19, 2008 -- Edmund Optics (EO) Inc. said its linear translation stages with travel track distances as long as 24 inches use rack-and-pinion positioning with an accuracy of 0.01 in. and are designed to allow easy integration of standard English-unit positioning equipment.
EO’s TechSpec English long-travel linear translation stages come in single- and dual-knob versions with the stage measuring 2.45" W x 2.36" L x 1.18" H. Each stage offers nine ¼-20 tapped holes for equipment mounting and has a load capacity of 5 kg (H) and 2 kg (V) when locked. The tracks are 2.45" W x 0.4" H in 6-, 12-, and 24-in. travel lengths and have counter-bored mounting holes for ¼-20 socket head cap screws every 6 inches. Mounting screws and Allen wrenches for the tension and mounting screws are provided with the tracks and stages.
The stage and track provide precision positioning with straight-line accuracy ranging from 0.004 in. for the 6-in. track to 0.011 in. for the 24-in. track. Stages travel 0.71 in. for each turn of the knob. Tracks are marked with 0.10-in. graduations and offer Vernier scale reading to 0.01 in. Stages and tracks are aluminum with black anodized coating.
EO’s English long-travel linear translation stages and tracks are available from stock with track travel lengths of 6, 12, and 24 in.; they are also available in metric configurations.
