Versatile Five Degree of Freedom Tables

Experimental Tables; Diffractometer Support; Detector Mounts

IDT have developed a comprehensive range of experimental table configurations which can be used to provide a stable support to optical components, experimental equipment and diffractometers. Tables are fully motorised with pitch, roll & yaw, vertical and lateral degrees of freedom (Z-translation can be included as an option).

IDT have installed more than 20 experimental tables at DESY, Swiss Light Source, Canadian Light Source, Diamond Light Source & HPCAT at the Advanced Photon Source.
