Large-Area Translation Stages

HeNe Laser Mounted on TBB0606 Using Ø1.5" Post and Previous Generation C1503 Kinematic V-Clamp
These Large-Area Translation Stages are available in two imperial and two metric sizes: 6" x 7.66" (TBB0606), 12" x 13.66" (TBB1212), 150 mm x 191.7 mm (TBB1515/M), and 300 mm x 341.4 mm (TBB3030/M). They have been designed for use in applications requiring adjustable positioning of a complete experiment. The TBB0606 (TBB1515/M) provides 2.4" (60 mm) of travel, whereas the TBB1212 (TBB3030/M) provides 4.8" (120 mm) of travel.
Coarse positioning is achieved simply by pushing the moving platform. Fine positioning over the full range of travel is achieved by adjustment of the rack and pinion using a 2 mm hex key. Motion can be locked by tightening the locking screw with a 2 mm hex key.
The working height of all the stages is 0.5" (12.7 mm), which is the same as our standard MB series breadboards. They are through-drilled with 1/4"-20 (M6) threaded holes in the standard 1" (25 mm) offset hole pattern. Two stages can be fixed together in a 2-axis XY configuration by using the appropriate TBBA series adapter plates described below. The height of the 2-axis assembly is 32.75 mm (1.29"). The finish on the stages and adapter plates is a black, low reflective anodized coating.

These adapter plates allow our large-area translation stages featured here to be mounted in a 2-axis XY configuration. The TBBA0606 (TBBA1515/M) is for use with TBB0606 (TBB1515/M) stages, whereas the TBBA1212 (TBBA3030/M) is for use with TBB1212 (TBB3030/M) stages. Please note that these plates are for use only with stages of the same type. The working height of the resulting 2-axis stage assembly is 32.75 mm (1.29”), with the full travel range in both X and Y directions.
