Edmund Optics has introduced its new Techspec Cage System Linear Translation Assemblies.
Offering a high-precision alternative to complex optical alignment systems, these versatile opto-mechanical systems are designed for modularity and flexibility. Techspec Optical Cage Systems consist of precision rods and plates, allowing the user to construct custom, adaptable opto-mechanical component systems with limitless options for modification, several of which are detailed below.
Techspec Cage System Linear Translation Assemblies can add linear translation to Techspec Optical Cage Systems setups. They are available in simple translation, using 6mm rods and standard plates and ball bearing translation, with ball bearing slides for low-friction translation. The compact design is configurable for 1/2-inch or 1-inch travel and fine translation can be achieved with the addition of micrometre drive.
