Three Axis Tilt Platforms

KKD

Tilt platforms are generally used to adjust the angle of the platform plane relative to a mounting surface plane. In many cases, the intent is to make the two planes parallel to each other.  For these functions, two angular adjustments are needed: pitch and roll.   Some of our tilt platforms provide an extra angular adjustment, yaw, and therefore are ideally suited to align prisms or diffraction gratings. Our tilt stages are specifically designed to be compatible with other linear and rotation stages having the same size and mounting threads. This means they can be stacked to provide additional adjustments to your setup.

3-Axis kinematic tilt platforms are available in 25-, 40-, 60- and 65-mm round platform sizes. The edge-knob adjustment design provides pitch, yaw and roll adjustment which can be used to orient one object to exactly match another. These platforms are frequently used to align prisms and cube beam splitters. Our tilt stages are specifically designed to be compatible with other linear and rotation stages having the same size and mounting threads.

  • There are two dials for Tip and tilt adjustment and a thumb screw for rotational adjustment.
  • Designed strictly for light loads centered on the platform.
