Turn Key XYZ Microscope Stage

Turn Key XYZ Microscope Stage

Challenge: The customer needed a full XYZ instrument with mechanics and controls. The z-axis had to be compact, stiff, low cost and high resolution. The frame had to fit an existing envelope which proved to be challenging as they wanted as much stroke as possible. A lot of strokes in a small envelope was the key challenge here.

Solution: Motion Solutions utilized a Z-axis (an early version that birthed the release of our nPS35) for carrying the XY platform. The X-axis was an LGS33 with an outrigger rail and the Y-axis used was an LGS33.

Result: Motion Solutions was able to leverage ready made designs within the customer’s required envelope constraints. The result was a full frame instrument with the XYZ mechanics integrated and as tightly packaged as possible. This was a successful turn-key solution that solved the clients’ mechanics, cabling, and drive needs.

Our Design Process

“It’s really important to thoroughly understand the application. We would start by reviewing the statement of work or application information that the customer provides, and then we would have a consultative meeting to make sure that we really understand how the system should function, and all of the nuances that are associated with it.”
