Multi-function feed screw stage

The product lineup features four different models for different travel distances. The revolutionary feed screw lens stage allows you to select a single rotation of the handle to be set to move by 2 mm, 5 mm or 10 mm, depending on the application.
With an easily visible central divider type color scale, the scale and clamp lever can easily be switched from left to right, and a symmetrically opposite arrangement is simple to make. As optional extras, two handled types, extension handle types and two set parallel types are available. The multi-function feed screw type has a rich array of features, providing long strokes at a regular pitch and with smooth sliding action, extremely useful for application in environments with limited space.

Selectable Travel per handle turn

Depending on the model size, we offer three different types of Travel. The ability to select the pitch speed per handle rotation allows you to choose from very precise movement to very fast movement, depending upon the required application. (Available for all series multi-function feed screw stages.)

Overseas product × × ×

The product which poor in precision, you may feel a strangeness in operation of full stroke with sliding the stage from the side by side. The feeling of operation depends on individuals.
 
■Grind
“Strange feeling, vigorously scraching something when turning the handle.No smoothness.
Many cases occur when tightend harder together between the rack and pinion.”
■Uneveness
For all strokes gets heavier or lighter for uneveness.
Many cases occur when weak tightening between the rack and pinion.
■Gap
Sliding the stage to one side makes the feeling as if the satages are scratched and becomes heavy.
When sliding it on the opposite side makes it feels lighter.
■Backlash
The play between male/female dovetail groove parts.
■Play
The gap between the contact face of gear that is intended to be provided in the direction of movement. By suppressing this gap as much as possible, smooth sliding without backlash.
