1/2" (13 mm) Travel Translation Stages
Steel Linear Bearings for Precision Motion and Long Life
Modular Design for XY, XZ, and XYZ Configurations
The MT1 is configured with the 148-811ST micrometer drive, which has a 1/2" range and 0.001" per division. The stage contains seven 1/4"-20 and four 8-32 tapped screws. The MT1 stage can be screwed directly onto a breadboard by using two 1/4"-20 screws in the counterbores in the middle of the stage. The MT1/M is configured with the 148-801ST micrometer drive, which has a 13 mm range and 10 µm per division. The stage contains seven M6 and four M4 tapped screws. The MT1/M stage can be screwed directly onto a breadboard by using two M6 screws in the counterbores in the middle of the stage.
Note:The MT1 translation stage is available without the micrometers, thereby allowing the user to choose the preferred drive model. Please call or email our technical support staff to discuss this option.

Modular Design for XYZ Configurations
MT1 Stage Available Separately Without Micrometers
The MT Series translation stages can be purchased individually (MT1 Series) or as fully assembled, 3-axis, XYZ translators (MT3 Series). The MT3 (MT3/M) translation stage is fitted with standard 1/2" (13 mm) micrometer drives. The quick-change modular design utilizes precision-aligned dowel pins to ensure orthogonality between stages and allows the user to reconfigure stages quickly as applications change.
MT401- MT Series Base Plate: The MT401 base plate provides mounting flanges with 1" (25 mm) centers that can be used to fasten the MT series stages to an optical breadboard. This base is ideal for XY or XYZ multi-axis configurations where the standard counterbores in the middle of the stages are obstructed.
MT402- MT Series Right Angle Bracket: The MT402, as shown to the right, allows two stages to be mounted perpendicular to each other. This plate is required when assembling stages in an XYZ configuration. This angle bracket is pre-drilled and includes alignment pins to guarantee that all stages are orthogonal to each other.
MT405- Side Mounted Actuator Kit: The MT405 repositions the actuator from the rear of the stage to the side, as shown in the image on the right. This kit is necessary when space constraints do not allow for the actuator to protrude from the rear of the stage. This kit conveniently mounts to the side of the stage with 4 cap screws.
MT406(/M)- Flexure Stage Accessories Adapter Plate: The MT406(/M) fastens directly to the top of the MT series stage with two 1/4"-20 (M6) cap screws. It is compatible with our current full range of 3 mm wide alignment key MBT and MAX series flexure stage accessories. This adapter plate is ideal for creating basic fiber coupling solutions.
