  • Array of Mounting Options
    • 16 1/4"-20 (M6) Taps

Thorlabs' XYR1(/M) Low-Profile Translation Stage provides 1/2" (13 mm) of travel along X and Y plus 360° of continuous rotation. The micrometers incorporated into this stage have graduations at 0.001"/div (10 µm/div). The continuously rotating platform is equipped with a central, SM1-threaded (1.035"-40) through hole, allowing it to be used in imaging applications that require illumination from underneath the sample. Translation of the stage in both X and Y will not obstruct the Ø1" through hole.

An engraved angular scale along the outer edge of the stage's rotating platform allows the user to set the angular orientation of the stage. Rotation of the platform can be locked using a 5/64" (2 mm) hex setscrew; when locked, translational movements are still possible.

In addition to the SM1-threaded through hole, the rotating platform also contains an array of 1/4"-20 (M6), 8-32 (M4), and 4-40 taps for mounting of samples and components. The eight 4-40 tapped holes are placed around the central through hole for use with our 30 mm or 60 mm cage systems, while the 8-32 (M4) tapped holes are ideal for mounting our SLH1 Microscope Slide Spring Clips (available below).

The SLH1 spring clips are designed to securely hold various sizes of microscope slides and test targets, and include two 8-32 (M4) threaded shoulder screws with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex socket for simple attachment to a variety of stages. Each clip is 2.51" (63.7 mm) long with a 0.20" (5.1 mm) wide tip and can be rotated 360° for easy access to, or positioning of, a slide. These clips come with 3 dowel pins that can be used with the XYR1(/M) stage to center a 1" × 3" standard microscope slide over the Ø1" through hole.

For applications that do not require rotation, Thorlabs also offers an XY translation stage with a non-rotating mounting surface.

Response from Buki at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback about including a theta Z axis micrometer. We have passed the idea to our design engineers. If we move ahead with this project soon, I will contact you regarding the possibility of testing a prototype.

Response from Buki at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback regarding this. Unfortunately we do not have a torque spec for this. It would be a good idea to use a counterbalance if you are planning on putting a lever arm on this (but make sure the max. load is not exceeded). You should be able to use this upside down. Please contact TechSupport@thorlabs.com if you have further questions.

This stage would be perfect with theta-Z micrometer control as some of the others have already mentioned.

What is the maximum torque that can be applied to the XYR1/M (around an axis in the plane of the platform)? Also, do you foresee any problems if the stage would be mounted upside-down?

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to nkaddy: Thank you very much for contacting us. The current design of the XYR1 does not easily allow for enlarging the diameter of the SM1 opening. I will contact you directly to help you find other alternatives that might be suitable for your application.

Great idea, but I need to have a larger hole in the middle, how large would be possible?

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to rbjaculbia: Thank you for submitting your request. The current design of the XYR1 does not allow for replacing the micrometers with coarse adjustment screws. The micrometer we use is actually our 148-811ST (http://www.thorlabs.com/NewGroupPage9.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=1223&pn=148-811ST#1223). Two of these actuators are inserted into the outer body of the XYR1 and then we use screws to hold the mounting barrel in place. I will contact you for further discussuion of your application.

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to rosaura.rucalvaba: We have not yet developed a version of the XYR1 with translation along the rotation axis. I will discuss this with our mechanics engineers and get back to you.

Has a modified version of product XYR1 with a micrometer driven z-rotation been developed? If so, who would I contact for the specs and a quote?

Response from Javier at Thorlabs to daniel-d-gall: we would recommend limiting the load to 2 lbs when the XYR1 is mounted vertically, with one of the actuators pushing up. It is also recommended to keep the load close to the stage, so as to prevent excessive torque onto the rotation plate.

This would could be very useful, but the setup were looking at requires the rotational axis to be horizontal rather than vertical. Would this be possible for this stage, and if so what would the weight restrictions be?

A response from Adam at Thorlabs: This is a great idea! I am currently in contact with our head engineer to see how easy this modification may be. How much resolution would you need? What type of precision would be necessary? If you have any more information, that would be very helpful. I will email with you with any updates we may have.

Is it possible to have this stage with a micrometer driven z-rotation? This would be very useful for precision applications such as mask alignment in lithography.

XYR1 with SLH1 Spring Clips and Slide. Dowel Pins in the Stage Align the Center of the Slide to the Optical Center of the Ø1" Hole.
  • Two-Axis Translation Stage with Rotating Platform
  • 360° of Continuous Rotation
  • 1/2" (13 mm) Linear Travel Along X and Y Axes

Thorlabs’ XYR1(/M) is a 1.00" (25.4 mm) tall, low-profile, two-axis linear translation stage with a rotating platform. The central SM1-threaded (1.035"-40) through hole is ideal for imaging applications that require illumination from the underneath of the sample. Both X and Y micrometers offer 1/2" (13 mm) of travel with graduations every 0.001" (10 µm). These stages are held in position by a spring force on the actuator, and thus, a locking screw is not necessary.

An engraved angular scale along the outer edge of the stage's rotating platform allows the user to set the angular orientation of the stage, which can then be fixed using the 5/64" (2 mm) hex locking setscrew. Locking the rotation axis does not prevent translation along the X and Y axes. The stage's rotation and translation can be freely changed without compromising the stability of attached components.

As shown in the image to the right, this stage is also compatible with the SLH1 Microscope Slide Spring Clips sold below. The XYR1(/M) has 3 alignment holes for the Ø1/8" × 1/4" dowel pins (included with the SLH1). These dowel pins center the middle of a 1" × 3" microscope slide over the through hole, as well as allow the user to repeatedly and accurately position the slides on the stage. The spring clips include two 8-32 (M4) threaded shoulder screws with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex socket for simple attachment to the stage.

SLH1 Spring Clips Attached to the XYT1 Translation Stage, Holding a Test Target That is Aligned Over Central Aperture Using the Provided Dowel Pins
  • Pair of Spring Clips Hold Sample Firmly in Place
  • Accommodates Microscope Slides and Test Targets of Various Sizes
  • Attaches Directly to Any Stage with 8-32 (M4) Tapped Holes
  • Dowel Pins Included for Aligning Standard Slides Over the Through Hole in Our XYR1(/M) or XYT1(/M) Translation Stages (See Photo to the Right)

These steel spring clips, ideal for securely holding various sizes of microscope slides and test targets, include two 8-32 (M4) threaded shoulder screws with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex socket for simple attachment to a variety of stages. Each clip is 2.51" (63.7 mm) long with a 0.20" (5.1 mm) wide tip and can be rotated 360° for easy access to, or positioning of, a slide. The tip of the clip is curved upwards to help prevent damage and facilitate the mounting of slides, while providing enough holding force to secure them in place.

The inclusion of three Ø1/8" x 1/4" dowel pins make these spring clips an excellent choice for use with our XYR1(/M) (sold above) and XYT1(/M) Translation Stages (see image to the right). These stages have a central Ø1" hole that is SM1 threaded (1.035"-40), and the top plate contains three alignment holes that are used with the Ø1/8" dowel pins. The dowel pins are positioned on the stage so that standard 1" x 3" (25.4 mm x 76.2 mm) slides are centered over the aperture, allowing for repeatable and accurate positioning of the slides.

Please note that any XYR1(/M) stage purchased before June 4, 2014 does not have dowel pin holes in the top mounting plate.
