    Translation Stages and Slides

    Translation Stages are used to provide varying degrees of movement to mounted optical components for a range of optical applications. Translation Stages are mounting surfaces that feature movement capabilities across one or more axes. Translation Stages use a number of different methods to achieve movement including ball bearings, rack and pinion, crossed roller, or leadscrew. Translation Stages allow optical components to be easily moved or repositioned without the need for removal or recalibration. Translation Stages are ideal choices for use in a number of optical systems.

    Edmund Optics offers a wide range of Translation Stages suited for many optical needs. Translation Stages are key additions to any optical system that requires fast or precise movement of components. Some Translation Stages may also be linked together to provide additional axes of movement beyond their individual capabilities for increased versatility. A selection of mounting adapters is also available for integrating with additional types of work surfaces.
