Introduction

Linear stages of the SLL Series are based on recirculating ball slides. The slide or carriages in combination with rails of different length make it an optimal solution either for precise long range positioning or large travel ranges within limited space. SLL stages can be operated by any of our control systems for stick-slip drives.
It is also possible to put multiple carriages on the same rail and move them independently to create fully motorized optical bench setups. The components of the SLL Series are available for two different rail widths. The rail of the compact SLL12 product line has a width of 12 mm and the compatible carriages a width of 27 mm. The larger versions of the SLL 42 product line include 42 mm wide rails and 60 mm wide carriages. The SLL42 product line is also available in a high-vacuum version.

SLL Accessories

Different accessories are available allowing to mount existing equipment to the rails of the SLL Series or to combine SLL stages with your existing setups on optical tables or breadboards.
For the application of SLL stages as optical benches for example the following accessories are available: passive carriages, mechanical end stops, breadboard adapters and opto-mechanical mounts. Due to the diversity of possible fields of application for SLL stages the number of available and customizable accessories is beyond the scope of this catalog. Please do not hesitate to contact our application scientists to discuss specialized accessories or fully customized solutions.

SLL12 - Large Travel Piezo Stage

The SLL12 stage allows multiple piezo driven carriages to be placed on one rail and to be moved independently.

SLLV42 - Large Travel Piezo Stage

The SLLV42 is the larger of the two SLL Series stages and offers a large platform to mount the payload and has a higher mechanical strength than its smaller counterpart
