• 19 mm (0.75") total travel in y-axis

  • setability to 5µm

  • intuitive auto locking design

  • configurable mounting positions


The YS001 Y Axis Linear Positioner is one of the convenient options of the Compact Alignment System. With 19 mm (0.75") total travel the Y-Stage simplifies course alignment of various optical components in the y-axis. For example in the Compact Alignment System it is used to simplify coarse alignment of a Vacuum Part Holder to microscope objective, polarization maintaining fiber, etc.

The spring-loaded design facilitates smooth and effortless moves while an intuitive locking system secures the stage to the adjusted position. Travel is linear with accurate setability to 5µm. The mounting plate on top of the Y-Stage allows for a variety of holding patterns.

Combine the YS001 with the I1000 Z Axis positioner to achieve and an extra 12.7mm  (1/2") lateral movement.
