Positioning Stages and Systems

MotionlinkMotionlink Stage

The Motionlink range of linear, vertical lift and rotary stages are UK-manufactured and have a proven track record over many years in many demanding applications. The travel range of these positioning stages is wide, from millimetres to several metres.

Our design consultancy in engineering motion systems also offers the custom mechanical design that a positioning system may also require. The stages are fitted with the appropriate motor, and high-accuracy ground ballscrews ensure their long and accurate life.

Our range of Motion Controllers can be tailored to control most accurate, positioning system requirements.

Control solutions based on 2 or 5 phase stepping motors or brushed/brushless servo motors are available.

Micronix USA

Micronix StageMicronix USA are a manufacturer a wide range of micro- and nanopositioning systems which are particularly ideal for biomedical and research applications. Micronix positioning systems have a range of motor options including piezo, stepper and direct drive linear motors, with appropriate motor feedback options such as rotary and linear encoders.
As well as standard-environment stages, Micronix products are available for demanding environments such as high vacuum preparation (to 10-9 mbar), cryogenic, radiation-tolerant and non-magnetic positioning applications

Compact controllers in the Micronix range are available to control any combination of stages.


Alio Hexapod
ALIO designs and manufactures proprietary robotic devices and tools that enable precise nano-scale movements for manufacturing and research and development. Products include hexapods, air bearings, and linear and rotary atmospheric and vacuum systems


IKO International design and manufacture linear guides and positioning stages to meet your highest quality and performance standards.


Piezoconcept Piezoconcept is the leading provider of nanopositioners dedicated to applications such as super-resolution microscopy, optical trapping and atomic force microscopy, using ultra-stable nanopositioners. Piezoconcept uses sensors with exceptionally high signal, leading to picometric stability in its range of piezo stages with one to three axes as standard, and many custom options.
In addition, with very low-noise electronics and flexure design stages, Piezoconcept is able to ensure a subnanometric (or sub-nanoradian) noise floor.
