Translation and Clamping Stages

Translation stages provide the facility to precisely position and align a test specimen below the actuator.

The PCB clamping stage provides a rigid clamping base for the testing of microelectronic circuit boards and components.The clamping stage may be attached directly to the test machine base or to a translation stage.

Principle Of Operation

Theta (rotary angle) and X-Y translation stages are available which are adjustable via digital micrometers. The translation stage axes are arranged with the angle stage at the base, with the X-Y stage on top which allows the test platform to be oriented with the X-Y axes referenced to the specimen.

Application Range

  • Precise positioning and rigid clamping of microelectronic circuit boards and components within the test system
