Clear aperture vertical rotation stage suitable for micro-robotics

Featuring a 180:1 precision worm drive, the precision AR59-AV motorised, 30mm clear aperture vertical rotation stage from Optimal Engineering Systems (OES) has deep grove ball bearings for a high resolution of ± 0.001° when microstepping (10 micro steps-per-step).

The parallelism of the table is less than 50µm. The AR59-AV vertical rotation stage is ideal for: micro-robotics, metrology, vision systems, positioning of mirrors and lasers, laser machining or scribing, electronic assembly, testing, and photonics.

The clear aperture of the AR59-AV vertical rotation stage allows for vacuum and / or electrical lines, as well as optics. A knob on the motor shaft allows for manual positioning. This knob may be replaced with an optical encoder for position verification.

This compact black anodised vertical rotation stage with a full 360° of rotation and 30mm (1.181”) clear aperture measures just 116.5x80x60x60mm (4.587x3.150x2.362x2.362”) for stability with 4 countersunk mounting holes for easy integration into new and existing applications. The 59mm (1.181”) dia table has 8 drilled and tapped (8-M3x6l) mounting holes for easy mounting of tooling, supports loads to 1kg (2.2 lb), and has scale to clearly display the angle of rotation.

Compatible with OES's line of motion controllers, the AR59-AV vertical rotation stage is available as a Plug-and-Play system or with an optical encoder for position verification. A larger vertical rotation stage and standard horizontal rotary stages are also available.
