RollerBlock™ Integral XYZ Translation Stage with Manual Micrometers
The combination of the steel and aluminum construction of the RollerBlock™ translator is ideally suited for a broad range of photonics applications. The crossed roller bearing design provides a vertical load capacity of 9.7 lbs (4.4 kg) while maintaining the sub-micron resolution provided by the high precision actuators.

The careful placement of the crossed-roller bearings within the RollerBlock™ translator, ensures the bearing surfaces are protected from contamination. This enhances the product lifetime when compared to competing mounts that have exposed bearing surfaces.

The Integrated XYZ Design
Compared with other modular approaches, provides a more compact stage which enables this three axis translator to meet the performance demands of many positioning applications, over the entire 13 mm translation range. Compared to translation stages constructed from stacking single axis stages, the unibody approach, with steel construction, provides improved product lifetime within a much smaller footprint.

Compatible with The Full Line of NanoMax™ and MicroBlock™ Flexure Stages and Accessories
The moveable deck has a full 13 mm of travel in three orthogonal directions and includes a grooved top plate that ensures alignment of our full line of optical accessories and features four 4-40 (M2), sixteen 6-32 (M3), and nine 8-32 (M4) mounting holes. The deck height of this compact stage matches the 62.5 mm deck height of our flexure based translation stages. Using this standard deck height allows this longer travel stage to be incorporated into complex optical systems built around our popular flexure based stages that populate our MicroBlock and NanoMax series.

Interchangeable Top Plate
The included top plate of the RB13 stages can be replaced with the RB13P1 Adapter Plate (see image above). This optional mounting plate has a generous array of 1/4"-20 (M6) and 8-32 (M4) mounting holes to adapt the RollerBlock stage to general purpose breadboard-type applications. Additionally, the included top plate can be purchased separately below [Item # MMP1(/M)].

Custom Configurations
We can also supply the stage in left hand configurations, or without drives for fitting 3rd party actuators.
