Thorlabs' Low-Profile Translation Stages provide 1/2" (13 mm) of travel along X and Y plus 360° of continuous rotation. The micrometers incorporated into these stages have graduations at 0.001" per division (10 µm per division). On the XYR1(/M), 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. In contrast, the OCT-XYR1(/M) features a removable, solid top plate that is secured to the central SM1-threaded 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). On the OCT-XYR1(/M), these tapped holes can be accessed by removing the solid sample plate. The XYR1A Solid Sample Plate can be purchased separately below for users who wish to convert the tapped surface of the XYR1(/M) to a flat surface. With the adapter plate, the XYR1(/M) stage height is 1.20".

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. If a different manual drive or a motorized actuator is required, please contact Tech Support.

A version of this top plate with just two SLH1 spring clips mounted would be idea. That way you have a smooth flat surface for placing your slide, while still having a couple clips to hold it down.

I want this product with a fine vernier adjustment on the rotation stage, same as the XY. Can you accommodate?
Poster:besembeson

Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: Thanks for contacting Thorlabs. A re-design of the stage will be necessary to accomodate this vernier addition so this is not something we can provide short term at the moment unfortunately. I will contact you regarding your application requirements so we can look into this in the future.

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.

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.

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?
Poster:Javier
Posted Date:2010-06-18 15:48:30.0
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.
Poster:daniel-d-gall
Posted Date:2010-06-15 15:30:31.0
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.

Two-Axis Linear Translation Stage with Rotating Platform

translation stage with rotation
Click to Enlarge

XYR1 used with SLH1 Spring Clips and a test target. 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
  • 1.00" (25.4 mm) Height from Base to Mounting Platform

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. The stage surface features an array of 1/4"-20 (M6), 8-32 (M4), and 4-40 tapped holes. The XYR1A Flat Adapter Plate can be purchased separately below to convert the tapped hole surface to a flat one.

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, allowing the user to repeatably 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.

Two-Axis Linear Translation Stage with Rotating Platform and Solid Top Plate

translation stage with rotation
Click to Enlarge

The solid top plate of the OCT-XYR1 can be removed to access the tapped holes and SM1-threaded bore underneath.
  • Two-Axis Translation Stage with Rotating Platform and Removable Solid Top Plate
  • 360° of Continuous Rotation
  • 1/2" (13 mm) Linear Travel Along X and Y Axes
  • 1.65" (41.8 mm) Height from Base to Mounting Platform

Originally designed for Thorlabs' OCT systems, the OCT-XYR1(/M) is similar to the XYR1(/M) translation stage sold above. This stage features a removable solid top plate for holding samples and taller legs for a total height of 1.65" (41.8 mm). As seen in the photo to the right, the top plate can be removed and is secured to the stage via the central SM1-threaded (1.035"-40) through hole. The OCT-XYR1 has imperial tapped holes while the OCT-XYR1/M features metric taps. These holes can be used to mount optomechanics and are also compatible with the SLH1 Microscope Slide Spring Clips sold below. 

The X and Y micrometers offer 1/2" (13 mm) of travel with graduations every 0.001" (10 µm). The stage is 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.

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.
