MS-8000 XY Automated Stage

About the MS-8000

The MS-8000 stage is suited to use with large industrial inspection microscopes such as the Nikon L200/300 series or Olympus MX51/61 series. The open frame allows for transmitted light illumination. The stage can be supplied with either a glass plate insert, or a variety of large format stage inserts, including a vacuum wafer chuck for semiconductor inspection.
The DC servo motor stage is compatible with either small precision anti-backlash gear-head motors or larger spur-head motors for faster speeds. The stage is also compatible with optional high accuracy linear encoders.
