VAN NUYS, Calif. – Optimal Engineering Systems Inc. (OES) in Van Nuys, Calif., is introducing the YPR-45-15-60 series three-axes stages for laser scanning, drilling, machining, reverse engineering, inspection, assembly, measurements, tracking, and positioning.
OES engineers developed the stages using a 60-millimeter-diameter rotary stage upper axis capable of 360 degrees of continuous operation, and two middle and lower axes goniometers with travel ranges of plus-or-minus 15 degrees and plus-or-minus 45 respectively.
This series of three-axes stages feature four motor options. The -01 option is stepper motor driven, the -02 option is three phase-servo motor driven, the -03 is DC servo motor driven, and the -04 option is stepper motor driven with quadrature optical encoders for position verification.
The rotary axis of the -01 and -04 versions has a maximum rotational speed of 30 degrees per second and has resolution of 0.002 degrees when 10 micro-steps per step motor driver is in use.
The positional accuracy for motion control is 0.05 degrees, and repeatability is plus-or-minus 0.01 degrees. The -02 and -03 versions move at speed to 45 degrees per second. This rotary axis has a precision pattern of threaded holes for mounting tooling or fixtures.
The goniometer axes of the -01 and -04 versions have a maximum speed of 14 degrees per second. The positional accuracy of each axis is 0.05 degrees, and repeatability is plus-or-minus 0.01 degrees. The -02 and -03 servo motor versions with quadrature incremental optical encoders travel to 45 degrees per second with greater resolution, accuracy, and repeatability.
