Translation Stages are used to provide varying degrees of movement to mounted optical components for a range of optical applications. Translation Stages are mounting surfaces that feature movement capabilities across one or more axes. Translation Stages use a number of different methods to achieve movement including ball bearings, rack and pinion, crossed roller, or leadscrew. Translation Stages allow optical components to be easily moved or repositioned without the need for removal or recalibration. Translation Stages are ideal choices for use in a number of optical systems.
