Manual stages are designed to provide precise, high-resolution travel over any combination of the six linear degrees of freedom. More importantly, however, they constrain any form of unwanted movement in the other angular or linear degrees of freedom: pitch, yaw, roll, as well as x-, y-, or z-axis translation. The offering includes linear stages, rotation stages, goniometers, labjacks and manual actuators like micrometers.

These products are frequently used in applications such as microscopy, metrology, optical fiber alignment, optical delay lines, interferometry, or wherever exact positioning is required. Industries that utilize translation stages include research, bio-medical, life sciences, astronomy, metrology, semiconductors, and more. We offer the largest selection of translation stages to meet virtually any application. For example, we have the most bearing options of any manufacturer, including EXC™ precision bearing, ball bearing, crossed-roller bearing, linear bearing, and dovetail bearing. Additionally, they are available in materials ranging from brass, aluminum, tool steel and stainless steel

Linear Stages XY, XYZ

We offer a wide range of Manual linear translation stages which are designed to provide precise, high-resolution travel over any combination of the three linear degrees of freedom. They are frequently used in applications such as microscopy, metrology, optical fiber alignment, optical delay lines, interferometry, or wherever exact linear position is required. We offer the largest selection of linear translation stages to meet virtually any application.

Rotation Stages

We supply manual rotation stages that are designed to provide full 360-degree coarse as well as fine angular travel over a single rotational degree of freedom, most commonly yaw.  Some versions of our rotation stages have a center aperture to allow the rotation of polarization optics. Rotation stages are frequently used in applications such as spectrometry, polarimetry, or wherever exact rotational position is required.

Goniometer Stages

We supply goniometer translation stages, which is the type of rotation stage where the axis of rotation is situated parallel to and above the mounting platform. Industries that utilize goniometer stages include research, bio-medical, life sciences, astronomy, metrology, semiconductor, and more. We offers the largest selection of goniometer stages to meet virtually any application.

Tilt Platforms

Tilt platforms are generally used to adjust the angle of the platform plane relative to a mounting surface plane.

High Vacuum Manual Stages

These stages are made for use in 1E-6 Torr vacuum or clean room environments and feature Opto Sigma’s EXC™ precision bearing ways.

These bearing ways are not separate parts, as with competing stages, but processed directly into the body and base of the stage resulting in the highest stiffness, straightness and smoothness of any stage on the market. They remain unmatched in overall performance to this day.

These stages are made completely from hardened 440C stainless steel for excellent cleanliness and corrosion resistance. Both the stage and the stainless steel micrometer head (included) have vented attachment holes and are lubricated with a high-grade vacuum grease (YVAC2).

What's New?

We’ve recently refreshed our website, and we hope that you will find the changes to be a big improvement. We’ve worked hard to make it easier to navigate the site, and to find exactly what you need from among our vast and diverse range of products.

Missing e-commerce?

One thing that we’ve not carried over from the previous site at this time is the facility to order online for a select range of our products, which you may have been used to in the past. “Off-the-shelf” items represent a small part of our product range; most often a purchase requires a more in-depth discussion between our sales team and the customer to match the right product to the user’s application. For this reason we have focussed on making it as easy as possible to request a quotation from our sales team.

Please rest assured that we will get back to you with pricing promptly, and will work with you to make sure the products you buy are exactly what you need. Once you’re ready to order, our sales team will work through the process with you, to make it as seamless as possible.

Once you’ve selected all the items you’re interested in, by clicking “Add to Quote” on the product page, just click “View Quote Request List” or the icon in the top navigation bar, check your list, set quantities, complete your details and submit the form. Our sales team will respond by email, in a timely manner.

If you have any other questions in the meantime, please get in touch directly.
