XY Stages

For Sample Positioning in Microscopy or Industrial Production

XY stages are used for sample positioning or scanning in two planes. Their main field of application is topology measurement. Microscope stages move, for example, biological samples under the objective. High throughput rates require precision, stability and dynamics. The same requirements also apply to industrial measurement methods such as white-light interferometry, except that there the samples can be much bigger and heavier (e.g. LCD monitors).
