Metric Ball Bearing Translation Stages with a metric hole patterns on both the top and bottom plates feature a preloaded ball bearing design that provides straight line accuracy of 2μm per 25mm of travel. These stages are available in multiple stage sizes and configurations of drive mechanism, drive orientation, and travel distance, as well as the option of a clearance-thru hole. The Fine Screw (64 Pitch) models provide fine resolution positioning while the English and Metric micrometer models provide a position readout in 0.001inch or 0.01mm graduations. Metric Ball Bearing Translation Stages are designed to reduce friction, allowing smooth linear motion without backlash or sideplay. All stages include screws for creating an X-Y stage and a position lock.
