One Axis Manipulators

Z Slide


The Z Slide is a precise, high rigidity UHV specimen translator having Z motion. There is a choice of translator travelling flange, DN 40CF or DN 63CF, depending on the accessories that are fitted. The translator is suitable for vertical or horizontal mounting.


The Z Slides have been designed for ease and convenience of use. Z movement is 75-800 mm, depending on application. These translators provide greater linear travel than is available from The Linear Shifts.

Additional information

The Z Slides are mostly used together with XY Stages. After connecting the Z Slide with an XY Stage we get the XYZ Manipulator with three degrees of freedom. The Z Slide can also be fitted with a stepper motor as required.
