Thorlabs' LX10 and LX20 Compact Translation Stages provide 25 mm of linear translation with less than 125 µrad of deviation per axis in pitch and yaw over the full range of the stages. The stages share a compact footprint and are constructed with a full aluminum body and crossed-roller steel bearings for precision motion and high-load capacities. They also feature monolithic top and bottom plates that integrate the micrometer mounts for increased stability. Each stage is also dedicated to the number of axes for which it is designed. As such, single-axis stages cannot be combined into dual-axis stages and dual-axis stages cannot be disassembled into single-axis stages.

The mounting surface includes an array of seven 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes to maximize the mounting options for components. Each stage axis is lockable via a side-located 5/64" (2.0 mm) hex screw in a locking bracket to guard against accidental movement. Each stage can be bolted directly to the optical table using four counterbored 1/4" (M6) holes that are revealed by translating the top plate of the LX10(/M) stage, as shown in the above image, or the middle plate of the LX20(/M) stage. Note that the LX20(/M) stage has a mounting hole below the top micrometer that may not be accessible without first removing the micrometer. The base of each stage also has four Ø2.4 mm alignment dowel pin holes for use with 3/32" dowel pins.

Note: Do not remove the micrometer until the leadscrew is no longer engaged with the moving body of the stage or the locking bracket is fully tightened. Not doing this can damage the stage or require it to be recalibrated to meet its specified performance.

These stages come equipped with a metric micrometer head for each axis, graduated in millimeters, with 500 µm of travel per revolution. The micrometer can be translated using the knurled knob or, for finer translation, a 5/64" (2.0 mm) hex key. The micrometer can be removed and replaced at any time by loosening the side-located flexure clamp with a 5/64" (2 mm) hex key. This flexure clamp can hold any micrometer that has a Ø3/8" (Ø9.5 mm) mounting barrel.

After each stage is manufactured, the pitch, yaw, and vertical straightness of the stage is tested. This ensures that each stage meets the stated specifications over the full translation range of the stage. They are shipped with an individualized data sheet providing a summary of these test results. Click here for a sample data sheet for one of our LX10 stages.

can these stages work used at xyz configuration?

Hello, thank you for contacting Thorlabs. XY and XYZ versions are in development. I will reach out to you directly. I can assist with XYZ solutions until these monolithic stages are released.

Single-Axis Translation Stages

  • 25 mm Single-Axis Translation
  • 0.98" (25 mm) Deck Height
  • 500 µm Translation per Micrometer Revolution

The LX10(/M) stage allows for a 25 mm travel range along the X axis. The stage comes with a 150-801ME-H micrometer. Please note that this stage is shorter than the multi-axis LX20(/M) stage by 0.52" (13 mm). Directly replacing one with the other might require realignment of other fixtures.

For more detailed information, please refer to the Specifications table above.

XY Translation Stages

  • 25 mm Translation in X and Y Axes
  • 1.50" (38.0 mm) Deck Height
  • 500 µm Translation per Micrometer Revolution

The LX20(/M) stage allows for a 25 mm travel range along the X and Y axes. The stage comes with two 150-801ME-H micrometers. Please note that this stage is taller than the single-axis LX10(/M) stage by 0.52" (13 mm). Directly replacing one with the other might require realignment of other fixtures.
