Thorlabs' Motorized Translation Stages provide electronically controlled linear motion along a well-defined axis. The PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Single-Axis Stage provides 25 mm (0.98") of travel along one axis, while the PT3-Z8 (PT3/M-Z8) Three-Axis Stage provides travel in three dimensions. Each stage is equipped with a 3.00" x 2.00" (75.0 mm x 50.0 mm) tapped hole matrix that includes sixteen 1/4"-20 (M6) taps for compatibility with standard optomechanics.

The moving platform contains holes for alignment pins that ensure orthogonality when the stage is stacked with other stages or connected to our accessories. Horizontal loads of 20 lbs (9 kg) and vertical loads of 10 lbs (4.5 kg) are supported by the actuator's inline 67:1 planetary gear head. The stages feature hardened steel linear bearings for precision motion and long life.

Mounting Adapters and Stage Combinations
Thorlabs' adapter plates and brackets provide a convenient way to mount the PT1-Z8 on an optical table or breadboard and to combine several stages into XY, XZ, or XYZ configurations. Photos of these adapters in use are shown below. For information on constructing an XYZ configuration from individual components, see the XYZ Assembly tab.

Included and Compatible Actuators
The included Z825B DC servo actuator features a 500 mm (1.64 ft) cable length, an internal limit switch to prevent travel outside of the intended range, and an encoder that provides 29 nm resolution (see the Specs tab for additional details). This actuator attaches to the stage using a flexure clamp that tightens around the Ø3/8" barrel. If desired, the Z825B actuator can be replaced by any manual or motorized 25 mm (0.98") actuator that includes a Ø3/8" barrel, including stepper motor actuators and manual micrometers.

Controller Options
Our KDC101 K-Cube™ Motor Controllers are required to operate these stages. Each KDC101 provides control for a single axis, with or without a PC. It is bundled with Thorlabs' Kinesis® software, which supplies out-of-the-box stage control from a PC and enables support for common programming interfaces like LabVIEW, LabWindows, and ActiveX. A USB cable is included with the KDC101. Compatible power supply options are listed below.

Thorlabs also manufactures the MTS25-Z8 Motorized Translation Stage, which features a built-in actuator and reduced overall package size.

Motor Specifications
Motor Type DC Servo
Cable Length 0.5 m (1.6 ft)
Motor Drive Voltage 12 V
Feedback Hall Effect Encoder
Encoder Counts per Lead Screw Revolution 34,304
Planetary Gear Head Ratio 67:1
Max Recommended Current 80 mA

Resolution Calculation

For the Z825B motorized actuator, there are 512 encoder counts per revolution of the motor. The output shaft of the motor goes into a 67:1 planetary gear head. This requires the motor to rotate 67 times to rotate the 1.0 mm pitch lead screw one revolution. The end result is the lead screw advances by 1.0 mm.

The linear displacement of the actuator per encoder count is given by

512 x 67 = 34,304 encoder counts per revolution of the lead screw,

whereas the linear displacement of the lead screw per encoder count is given by

1.0 mm / 34,304 counts = 2.9 x 10-5 mm (29 nm).

The modular design of the PT series motorized translation stages allows the assembly of 2- or 3-axis stages within minutes. Each stage comes with two precision dowel pins that allow for right- or left-handed XY configurations with excellent orthogonality. Follow the steps below to build a 3-axis XYZ translator (PT3-Z8) from individual components.

Step One
Step 1

Insert the two 1/8" alignment pins into the PT101(/M) Base and then screw it onto the PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Translation Stage using the two included 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws. Then insert the two 1/8" alignment pins into the provided holes to ensure orthogonality of the second stage.

Step Two
Step 2

Attach the second, orthogonal PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Translation Stage, as shown above, using two 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws. Then insert the two 1/8" alignment pins into the provided holes for aligning the angle bracket.

Step Three
Step 3

Screw the PT102(/M) Angle Bracket to the PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Translation Stage, as shown above, using two 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws. Then insert the two 1/8" alignment pins into the provided holes on the front face of the angle brakcet for aligning the third and final stage.

Step Four
Step 4

Screw the third PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Translation Stage to front of the PT102(/M) Angle Bracket, using two 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws.

Thorlabs offers two platforms to drive our wide range of motion controllers: our Kinesis® software package or the legacy APT™ (Advanced Positioning Technology) software package. Either package can be used to control devices in the Kinesis family, which covers a wide range of motion controllers ranging from small, low-powered, single-channel drivers (such as the K-Cubes™ and T-Cubes™) to high-power, multi-channel, modular 19" rack nanopositioning systems (the APT Rack System).

The Kinesis Software features .NET controls which can be used by 3rd party developers working in the latest C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™, or any .NET compatible languages to create custom applications. Low-level DLL libraries are included for applications not expected to use the .NET framework. A Central Sequence Manager supports integration and synchronization of all Thorlabs motion control hardware.

Kinesis Software
Kinesis GUI Screen
APT Software
APT GUI Screen

Our legacy APT System Software platform offers ActiveX-based controls which can be used by 3rd party developers working on C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™, or any Active-X compatible languages to create custom applications and includes a simulator mode to assist in developing custom applications without requiring hardware.

By providing these common software platforms, Thorlabs has ensured that users can easily mix and match any of the Kinesis and APT controllers in a single application, while only having to learn a single set of software tools. In this way, it is perfectly feasible to combine any of the controllers from single-axis to multi-axis systems and control all from a single, PC-based unified software interface.

The software packages allow two methods of usage: graphical user interface (GUI) utilities for direct interaction with and control of the controllers 'out of the box', and a set of programming interfaces that allow custom-integrated positioning and alignment solutions to be easily programmed in the development language of choice.

A range of video tutorials is available to help explain our APT system software. These tutorials provide an overview of the software and the APT Config utility. Additionally, a tutorial video is available to explain how to select simulator mode within the software, which allows the user to experiment with the software without a controller connected. Please select the APT Tutorials tab above to view these videos, which are also available on the software CD included with the controllers.

Christopher Schnaitmann  (posted 2019-10-21 18:08:02.54)
Dear Sir or Madam, is this stage compatible with the Sutter MP-285 Controller and what is the expected min achievable incremental movement in this configuration? Kind regards, Christopher Schnaitmann
rmiron  (posted 2019-10-23 04:15:05.0)
Response from Radu at Thorlabs: Hello Christopher. The short answer is no. From what I can see on Sutter's website, MP-285 is a stepper motor controller. PT1-Z8/M uses a brushed DC servo motor. Consequently, it requires very different drive electronics.

1.Does this product have CE certification? 2.Does Thorlab have agent in Taiwan?
AManickavasagam  (posted 2019-10-08 04:47:01.0)
Response from Arunthathi at Thorlabs: Thanks for your query. Yes, we do have CE certificaton. We do not have an agent but we do support and ship to Taiwan. If required please contact techsupport@thorlabs.com for further assistance.

I want to buy this motorized 2D linear stage, MTS25-Z8 but I have few concerns, Can it generate triggers for synchronizing with other hardware devices?
rmiron  (posted 2019-08-12 12:23:04.0)
Response from Radu at Thorlabs: You can set the stage, from Kinesis, to be in one of 8 different Trigger Out modes. KDC101 can send triggers out when the stage reaches max velocity, when it is in motion, when it passes a point while going forward (or in reverse, or both) or when it reaches the forward limit switch (or the reverse, or both). The trigger polarity can also be set from Kinesis. For more freedom you could also use Kinesis' APIs to set the state of the trigger out port as desired.

I am looking to make a XY motion using 2 PT1 Z8 translators, but facing issues in creating assembly, can you please explain how to create XY translator assembly using suitable diagrams. Thanks
sharrell  (posted 2014-02-05 08:41:46.0)
Response from Sean at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback. We have instructions for attaching the manual versions of these stages into XYZ configurations here: http://www.thorlabs.com/newgrouppage9.cfm?objectgroup_id=706, and click on the "XYZ Assembly" tab. We are working to duplicate this content for the motorized stages.
jlow  (posted 2012-10-05 08:58:00.0)
Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: We will update the webpage to include more information about the motor. The PT1/M-Z8 uses the Z825B motor, which has a bidirectional repeatability of <1.5µm. You can also find out about other specifications for this motor at http://www.thorlabs.com/NewGroupPage9.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=1883&pn=Z825B.
maarten.van.kampen  (posted 2012-10-05 02:30:44.0)
Dear madam/sir, For most motorized translators a 'bidirectional repeatability' is specified. this is a very useful number, since it will tell me how close I can approximate an absolute position. This product range only specifies a minimum step of 29 nm (calculated), which will be a highly optimistic number. What is the repeatability of this device series?
tcohen  (posted 2012-09-06 15:12:00.0)
Response from Tim at Thorlabs to Mixalis: Thank you for contacting us. I would like to go over your measurement setup with you and have contacted you directly to do so. If the stage is not performing to spec we will of course take it in for evaluation and repair.
mikeloul  (posted 2012-09-05 14:42:28.0)
Dear Sir/Madam, I had bought some PT1/M-Z8 2-e months ago but I'm encountering some problems concerning the angular deviation. In the space of 0 - 25,4mm the laser beam goes up 1,5mm measured in a distance of 1850mm, which means that the angular deviation is approx 800µrad, instead of <250 µrad that you refer at the specs. The laser beam seems to rise when I move the motors back. Have you noticed something like that? Best regards Mixalis

  • Single-Axis and Three-Axis Versions
  • Z825B DC Servo Actuator Provides 25 mm (0.98") Travel per Axis
  • Includes Two Alignment Pins per Axis for Stage Stacking and Mounting Accessories
  • Controller and Power Supply Sold Separately

Thorlabs' PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Single-Axis and PT3-Z8 (PT3/M-Z8) Three-Axis Motorized Translation Stages provide linear, orthogonal motion in one or three dimensions. Sixteen 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes allow easy integration with a wide variety of common optomechanical setups. The stages feature hardened steel linear bearings for precision motion and long life.

The PT1-Z8 stage is designed for single-axis translation. For applications requiring XY motion, simply purchase two PT1-Z8 stages and stack them using the provided alignment pins to ensure orthogonality. If XYZ motion is desired, then we recommend the PT3-Z8 stage. In addition to alignment pins for all three axes, the PT3-Z8 includes a PT101(/M) Base Plate and a PT102(/M) Right-Angle Bracket. For more details on these accessories, please read below. Two oversized 1/4"-20 (M6) counterbores in each single-axis stage allow the stage to be directly attached to a mounting adapter (sold below) or a metric or imperial breadboard with user-supplied cap screws.

Each axis requires a standalone controller unit and power supply to operate. For this purpose, we recommend our KDC101 K-Cube™ Motor Controller, which is described in more detail below.

The motor cable that is built in to the Z825B actuator is 0.5 m (1.64 ft) long. If more length is required for your application, we recommend our PAA632 Extension Cable, which provides an additional 2.5 m (8.20 ft). It is sold at the bottom of this page.

PT101 Base Plate Provides Easily Accessed Counterbored Slots
  • Mount a PT1-Z8 Single-Axis Stage to a Breadboard or Optical Table
  • Contains Four 1/4" (M6) Counterbore Slots for Imperial and Metric Compatibility
  • Alignment Holes and Dowel Pins Ensure Parallelism

The PT101(/M) Base Plate is ideal for XY configurations or already assembled XYZ multi-axis configurations where the standard counterbores in the middle of the stages are obstructed. Although the PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Single-Axis Stage sold above can be directly mounted to a breadboard or optical table, mounting requires unobstructed access to the two bores in the middle of the moving platform. This base plate allows an attached stage to be positioned on a breadboard without having to disassemble a setup that already exists on the moving platform. This plate is included with the purchase of a PT3-Z8 (PT3/M-Z8) Three-Axis Stage.

The bottom of the translation stage is connected to the base plate using two 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws. The base plate includes two alignment holes for the alignment pins included with the PT1-Z8 stage, which together ensure that the translation axis is parallel to the plate.

The PT102(/M) Right-Angle Bracket orients a PT1-Z8 (PT1/M-Z8) Single-Axis Stage in the vertical plane, allowing the construction of XY, XZ, or XYZ arrangements of PT1-Z8 stages. Two examples are shown to the right. This bracket is included with the purchase of a PT3-Z8 Three-Axis Stage. This angle bracket is also compatible with our manual and motorized MT series translation stages that offer 1/2" (25 mm) of travel. This allows stages with different travel ranges to easily connected within the same mechanical system.

To begin the assembly process, insert the two alignment pins provided with the PT1-Z8 stage into the stage's alignment holes. Then position the bracket's alignment holes above the pins. The bracket can be fastened down using two 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws. At this point, the bracket's vertical mounting surface will accommodate a stage that is attached horizontally (for XY configurations) or vertically (for XZ or XYZ configurations). For details, please see the XYZ Assembly tab.
