I1000 Z Axis Linear Positioner
Features
  • All damped, frictionless flexure design

  • Dual flexure means no arc error (no off axis movement)

  • Internal viscous damping

  • Manual or automated

  • Zero backlash

  • 10nm resolution when fitted with a differential micrometer

  • Stepper Motor Actuator delivering 0.1µm/step

Overview
I1000 Manual.png

A single axis micro-positioner stage with 12.7 mm (0.5") of travel and dual flexure design that yields smooth, linear motion with astounding precision and ease.

A Stable Platform

Able to handle loads of up to 1 kg, the I1000 single axis stage provides a stable platform for many straight-forward positioning tasks. A large travel of 12.7 mm (0.5"), makes the I1000 suitable where coarse alignment is required. The dual flexure design ensures extreme linearity and eliminates the need to compensate the arcing motion associated with single flexure designs. Furthermore, the flexure design is essentially frictionless and does not exhibit any hysteresis or stiction of typical roller-bearing stages. Internal damping makes the I1000 insensitive to vibration allowing it to be used on a typical bench (without an optical table).

Automation

With this advanced design, upgrading to automation is easy and inexpensive. The Z axis provides 12.7 mm (0.5") of travel on the focal axis and a step size of 100 nanometers (4µ-inch).
