Manual Base Mount, 4 Axis
Unlike stages with rack and
pinion drive, the MX160 uses a spring-loaded lead screw design against a
solid stop, which ensures drift-free operation. The MX160
incorporates fast-pitch, screw drive positioning, and smooth ball bearing
motion in the X, Y, Z, and probe axes for precision positioning.
Color coded knobs are used to identify axis location in low light
For added positioning versatility, the top stage tilts at any angle
through 360░, and includes 22-mm of linear travel along the probe axis.
This feature plus 22-mm of X-axis travel make the MX160 ideal for axial
The MX160 has our MXC-45 mounted to the probe axis. The MXC-45's
built in rotational stop allows easy electrode/pipette replacement.
MX160s come standard with our ABP-R mounting plate. The design of
this mounting plate enables coarse positioning between platform mounting
holes as well as 360░ of coarse rotational positioning. If rotation
with a solid submicron level stop is required, the
rotation stage is designed to mount directly into the ABP-R as well as the
