Linear stages of the SLC-17 series are very rigid and therefore ideally suited for micro- and nanopositioning systems where stability and high accuracy are top priorities. Despite their small size of only 17 mm in width and 8.5 mm in height a position sensor for closed-loop operations can be optionally integrated into each stage without affecting its outer dimensions. For higher mechanical strength, U-shaped bases are available, which increase the width of the stage by 6 mm. Optionally, the stages are available in specialized versions for use in high vacuum and ultra-high vacuum environments or can be manufactured in different material combinations. Please feel free to contact us whenever questions about compatibility, specification and customization arise.
