2" (50 mm) Travel Translation Stages
Mounting the LT1 Single Axis Translation Stage to an LT101 Base Plate
The LT1 and LT3 Translation Stages provide 2" (50 mm) travel on each axis and feature a 3.75" x 3.75" (95 mm x 95 mm) mounting surface with a generous supply of 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped mounting holes. These stages are intended for general purpose laboratory applications that benefit from a high degree of adaptability. A dual action coarse and fine actuator design provides easy, rapid motion via a coarse pitch lead screw (18 TPI) and high resolution via a fine lead screw (100 TPI) that is placed in series with the coarse adjuster. Travel can be locked using a locking plate that is located on the side opposite to these actuators.
The LT1(/M) stages are easily assembled into XY, XZ, YZ, or XYZ configurations using our SH25S025 1/4" long cap screws. We recommend these cap screws due the shorter thread depth required to assemble multi-axis stages. Precision alignment holes that allow the individual stages to be assembled into multi-axis systems as well as dowel pins are provided to ensure that the axes are perpendicular. The procedure for mounting the LT1 stage to an LT101 base plate is shown in the video to the right.
Alternatively, our 2" (50 mm) crossed-roller bearing stages feature low angular deviation, high load capacity, a graduated micrometer, and integrated dovetails for quick multi-axis construction.

Thorlabs' Smart Pack Initiative is aimed at minimizing waste while providing adequate protection for our products. By eliminating any unnecessary packaging, implementing design changes, and utilizing eco-friendly materials, this initiative seeks to reduce the environmental impact of our product packaging.
The updated LT1(/M) packaging primarily consists of recycled paper and cardboard and weighs 56.05% less than the original packaging. This weight change results in a 71.88 kg reduction in travel-based CO2 emissions per year, based on typical product sales.
As we move through our product line, we will indicate re-engineered, eco-friendly packaging with our Smart Pack logo, which can be seen above.
