Positioners from the SLL line are based on recirculating ball slides. The small slide in combination with rails of different length make it an interesting solution either for precise long range positioning or if you need large travel ranges within limited space. It is possible to put multiple slides on the same rail.
SLL positioners can be operated by any of our control units and are also available for high vacuum.
In order to use the SLL positioners as an optical bench SmarAct offers a large variety of equipment, including adapter plates. This allows easy integration of the piezo driven rails into your experimental setup.
A small selection of the broad SLL product variety is given below. If you require special parts, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
To mount existing components or other positioners onto the same rail we offer a passive carrier which is equipped with a clamp for fixation.
In order to limit the travel range of SLL positioners we are offering removable and fixed endstops.
To mount the rail to an existing bread board we are offering mounting adapters and variable end stops which are available for every common hole pattern.
To attach optomechanical components to the rails, various mounts are available, too.
This 3D Manipulator consists of two customized, SLL-based linear stages and a SR-7012. The manipulator was designed for 3D positioning of samples with a weight of 300 g over a distance of 250 mm in vertical, horizontal and any hybrid orientations with the usual nanometer precision. This manipulator can be used in high vacuum environments like a SEM and can be customized to different payloads.
