Linear Ball Bearing Stages are used in optical or laser systems to move optical components for a number of optical or laser applications. Linear Ball Bearing Stages are mounting platforms that use a selection of drive mechanisms to move optical components. Several axes of movement are offered by Linear Ball Bearing Stages including X, Y, or Z-axes as well as full 360° rotation. Ball bearings provide easy, low-friction movement without the danger of backlash or side movement. A selection of Z-axis brackets is also available for additional mounting opportunities.
