YZ-Stage

Our YZ-Stage is a stiff, high load and encoder free high precision stage.

The encoder free precise operation allows installation in high radiation locations such as front-ends and storage ring tunnels. The very precise motion and high stiffness comply with the tension from vacuum bellows and enable the stage to move beamline components at very high precision levels.
