A high precision, low profile, compact motorised rotary stage, the AY110-100-SC, is now being offered by Optimal Engineering Systems (OES). This precision stage is 45mm high and the foot print is only 121 by 170mm. The stage has a pattern of threaded mounting holes in the rotary table and holes in the base for easy integration into new and existing applications.
The diameter of the table is 100mm and the range of travel of the AY110-100-SC Rotary Stage is a full 360o and it is capable of continuous rotation. The table is driven by a 180:1 worm gear at up to 14o per second and has a resolution of 0.0001o with a ten micro-step per step stepper motor driver. The stage is also available with a servo motor and optical encoder. When configured with the standard stepper motor there is a knob for manual adjustment which can be replaced with an optical encoder for precision position verification.
The low cost, low profile AY110-100-SC rotary stage features a parallelism of 80 microns, a backlash of 0.0005o, surface roundness of 15 microns, positional accuracy of 0.001o, and a transmission deviation of five microns making it suited for: Microscopy, laser positioning and machining, inspection, assembly, testing, and other critical applications.
This black anodised stage has a load capacity of 45kg and there is an indicator scale for visual sighting of the angle of rotation. The stage can be ordered plug-and-play with a fully compatible controller from OES.
