XYZ 2000 micro positionerThis XYZ 2000 is shown with a Navitar scope and scope mount. Also shown are theta plates in between the x and xy stage to correct for orthogonality.

The Model XYZ 2000 Series translation stage was intended for moving optics and microscopes around. This unit is capable of handling loads up to 50 lbs and moving in increments as small as .0005 mm or half a micron. This unit is being used for production probing of MEMS and LEDS in large manufacturing firms. You can use our control or build your own to move the high resolution steppers. Gearboxes are available for smaller moves.

Over the years the XYZ 2000 has been used for analytical probing with a computer controlling the step and repeat of a multiple probe test procedure. This translation stage is adaptable for many types of semiconductor, medical and scientific research and development. Automatic probing and visual inspection are just some of the uses for the motorized positioners we offer.

The XYZ 2000 is available in single axis or stacked in the configuration shown. It is made of precision high-quality 440 stainless steel linear bearings and dense aluminum with a black anodized finish. There are knobs on the backs side of the motors to allow manual override of the movement.

This controller will operate the XYZ 200 or any of the XYZ 500 motorized positioners. It can handle up to five 3 axis cards. It uses a serial bus to communicate with the PC.

We have some new controllers that use USB and will control the Navitar scope zoom and focus, lighting RGB and white leds and 3 axis of movement on the stage.
