Micro Manipulators.

PROFESSIONAL MANUAL MICRO MANIPULATOR

FX-117  three axis micro-manipulator provides safe and efficient positioning for Minitool microtools.

All three vernier reading graduated in 0.1mm.  The X-axis, which holds the tool clamp with microtool, has an additional fine movement with 0.01mm graduations.

The FX117 employs rack and pinion drive, V-shaped guide ways and cross bearings, so movement is precise and repeatable.  Contact parts are milled of hardened steel for optimum performance and long life.  Design employs inline control knobs clustered within an 8cm area in a single vertical plane resulting in quick and precise hand manipulation.

The stand FX117-01 has a dovetail adapter and mounting post.  The optional adapter FX115-03 can also be used.

Specifications:

Movements: X axis fine 10mm travel .01mm gradations
  X axis 37mm travel .10mm gradations
  Y axis 20mm travel .10mm gradations
  Z axis   25mm travel .10mm gradations
       
Weight: 1.8 lbs. (6.1 With stand)  
       
Dimensions: H 140mm (220 mm with stand)
  W 100mm (145 mm with stand)
  D   60mm (165 mm with stand)
       
MANUAL ULTRA PRECISION MICRO-MANIPULATOR FX-118 MANUAL ULTRA PRECISION MICRO-MANIPULATOR
FX-118

The world patented precision micro-manipulator Model FX-118 employs a unique differential lever system for smooth movement of each of its three stages, X, Y & Z.

Each of the three stages is controlled by two independent micrometers for rapid or fine advancement of each stage.

An optional tilting device (FX-113) has micrometer controlled tilting in two additional directions.

An optional micro-tool holder (FX-118-01) is available which can be mounted to either the Z axis of the manipulator or the FX-113 tilting device.

Also available is an optional adapter (FX-115-03), which holds all available micro-tools.
