  • This Specification Applies to All Axes (Tip [Θx], Tilt [Θy], and Rotation [Θz])

Features

  • Micrometer Operated Tip, Tilt, and Rotation
  • 8-32 (M4) Tapped Holes with 1/2" (12.5 mm) Spacing
  • Compatible with PM3(/M) and PM4(/M) Clamping Arms
  • 1.48" (37.5 mm) Deck Height
  • Black Anodized Aluminum Construction

The TTR001(/M) Tip, Tilt, and Rotation Stage provides ±5° uncoupled tilt adjustment in pitch and roll, together with ±10° rotation (yaw) adjustment. These adjustments allow optical components and fixtures to be aligned with a plane and then rotated within that plane. The center of roatation axis is located at a line normal to the center of the platform. Both the tip and tilt axes will move with respect to a point located 12 mm below the top surface of the stage on the rotation axis. The top plate features an array of 21 8-32 (M4) threaded holes on a 1/2" (12.5 mm) pitch. An 8-32 to 6-32 thread adapter is included with imperial stages for use with the PM3(/M) and PM4(/M) clamping arms sold below.

The high-resolution Mitutoyo micrometers incorporated into the stage are marked with a 0.001" (10 µm) scale and provide positioning accuracy within 5 arcseconds. Turning the micrometers gives 1.5° of rotation and 1.78° of tilt per revolution. Preload adjustment to eliminate backlash can be performed by adjusting the knobs adjacent to the micrometers as shown above. One knob adjusts/locks the pitch (Θx) and roll (Θy) axes simultaneously, while the other knob adjusts/locks the yaw (Θz) axis. Note that if the knob is tightened, the motion in that axis is effectively locked until the micrometer is backed off. In this case, some friction may be experienced when adjusting the remaining axis.

Typical Application
TTR001 stage raised to same deck height as MAX311D stage for use in a typical refraction application. (Click to Enlarge)

The stage is fixed to the work surface via three clearance holes for standard 1/4"-20 (M6) screws. The deck height of the stage is 1.48" (37.5 mm). A Height Adapter Plate [TTR001SP1(/M)] is available to raise the deck height to the standard 2.46" (62.5 mm), making the stage compatible with our NanoMax, MicroBlock, and RollerBlock 3-Axis Stages. The height adapters are fixed to the work surface using the four clearance holes that accept standard 1/4"-20 (M6) screws. The stage is then mounted to the height adapter using the three 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes.

A typical application is shown to the right, where the TTR stage is raised up to mate with a MAX311D 3-axis stage. A PM4 clamping arm is used to mount a prism on the tip, tilt, and rotation stage. An HCS013 Mount and RMS09 adapter are mounted on the MAX311D stage and used to hold a collimating lens with connectorized fiber. The collimated laser beam is directed onto the prism, and the laser refraction is adjusted via the TTR001 stage micrometers.

Response from Ben at Thorlabs: We currently do not hold load specifications for this stage when mounted vertically as the stage is designed specifically for table mounted use. I will contact you directly to discuss your requirements further.

Hello, we're probably going to use this stage in our project but we have some trouble with enough space there so we need to try a few ways of concept to find the right fit. What i'd like to know is, if it's okay for this stage to work upside down or with the main axis in horizontal orientation. Thank you Best regards M. Andrle

Response from Ben at Thorlabs: We appreicate your feedback here. We spec the load capacity at 5kg on the webpage. This would account for the load limit for adjustment in dx, dy & dz (tip, tilt & rotation) only. We will contact you for further details of your requirements.

What is the typical center of rotation for each axis on your TTR001 tip, tilt and rotation stage?

Response from Chris at Thorlabs: Thank you for using our feedback tool. The rotation axis will cause movement about the line normal to the center of the platform. The tip and tilt axis will move about a point 12 mm below the top surface of the platform located on the rotation axis.

Clamping Arms
  • Provides Clamping Force for Our Mounts
  • Stackable 6-32 (M4) Threads on Top and Bottom of Post
  • PM3(/M): Holds Optics up to 0.97" (24.6 mm) Tall
  • PM4(/M): Holds Optics up to 1.61" (40.9 mm) Tall

Thorlabs' PM3(/M) and PM4(/M) Clamping Arms use a nylon-tipped setscrew to secure objects in our mounts and V-clamps. The PM3(/M) provides vertical travel of up to 0.97" (24.6 mm) and features a 0.69" (17.5 mm) long clamping arm. In contrast, the PM4(/M) provides vertical travel of up to 1.61" (40.9 mm) and features a 1.16" (29.3 mm) long clamping arm.

The clamping arm is held to the post using a flexure mechanism that locks with a 5/64" (2 mm) balldriver or hex key. The post includes a Ø0.09" (Ø2.3 mm) through hole that provides added torque when tightening down the post.

The PM3(/M) clamping arm can be used to hold 1" (25.4 mm) tall optics with the addition of a second post. Without the second post, the top surface of the clamping arm will be positioned above the top of the post, causing less-than-full engagement of the flexure mechanism.
