MXT Angle Platform
The MXT is a small and stable tilt platform that works
well where the angle of attack needs to be adjusted. The angle
is adjusted by turning the knob in the back of the stage. The angle
of the platform surface can be read on the scale that is mounted on the
side of the stage opposite the locking screw. The stage is
spring-loaded to minimize backlash. The non-influencing foil lock is
activated by a laser marked knob on the side of the stage.
The top of the
tilt stage is tapped 1⁄4-20 in nine places. The hole pattern is
matched to accept Siskiyou's translation stages, rotation stages and
The MXT base
plate is equipped with a unique hold-down pivot that allows secure
single-bolt mounting anywhere on the table.
The MXT's base
can be removed from its tilt stage and conveniently positioned in your
experiment. By setting the tilt stage back on the base, the location
can be confirmed. After the stage is in the desired position, remove
the tilt stage, lock down the base, replace the tilt stage, and lock it in
place with the two 1⁄4-20 cap screws.
