System peripherals

The tripod and stage provide flexible mounting options for your XL-80 laser system. Cases are available for secure and convenient storage and transport.

Tripod and stage

Unless you are using a dedicated measurement rig, then you are likely to need a mounting stage (and in most cases a tripod) to adjust the laser's position relative to the desired measurement axis. 

  • XL-80 on stageThe XL mounting stage allows for precise angular rotation and translation of the XL-80.  It is designed to be left attached to the laser unit for easy storage and quick set-up.
  • A "quick fit/release" mechanism enables rapid and secure fixing to a tripod.  For those applications where tripod mounting is not convenient, e.g. for mounting directly on a machine tool table, the stage and laser can also be mounted on to most standard magnetic bases, using an optional adapter with M8 thread.
  • The new Universal tripod has been extensively tested to provide a stable, adjustable base in a compact, lightweight unit.
  • Together with the tripod stage and laser unit foot adjustment, it provides full alignment control over the laser beam from the XL-80.
