The sliding table is a translation stage for the entire mardtb goniostat along the X-ray beam direction. The entire mardtb instrument together with a mounted detector sits on the sliding table. The range of movement is 250 mm. The purpose of the sliding table is to have easy access to the X-ray optics of your X-ray setup. It allows you to move the detector and goniostat out of the way for aligning the optics or doing other kind of service work. When finished you can easily slide back to almost the same position from where you came from. No need for major realignment work. If the position of the X-ray beam has moved at all, this will be easily in the range of automatic beam optimization procedures of the mardtb goniostat.
The unit consists of:
- Translation stage with a range of 250 mm
- Two manual brakes for fixing the sliding table in a certain position
- Solid aluminum table with recess areas for the 4 legs of the mardtb goniostat
- Also available for standard marresearch goniostat instead of mardtb
- Installation manual
