ATS 204 automated translation stage for FlexAFM

Automated serial measurements at the click of a button

For small samples and travel ranges, Nanosurf developed the ATS 204 automated translation stage for FlexAFM-based AFM systems. This compact translation stage, which is fully compatible with the Nanosurf Isostage vibration isolation table, represents a simple starting point for automated serial measurements. Controlled via the convenient Nanosurf stage control unit and the Nanosurf batch manager (integrated in the Nanosurf control software), the ATS 204 allows for easy operation, programming, and measurement execution. No attendance or supervision is required for otherwise time-consuming and repetitive tasks.

Custom-built automated translation stages

In addition to the standard ATS 204 automated translation stage, Nanosurf now offers an extensive program for much larger and custom-built automated translation stages. In close cooperation and in continuous dialog with you, our instrument development team will design and construct a translation stage tailored to your exact needs.

Other parts of your FlexAFM system (scan head, cantilever holder, etc.) can be customized as well. Have a look at our custom solutions for some examples.
