VAN NUYS, Calif. – Optimal Engineering Systems Inc. (OES) in Van Nuys, Calif., is introducing the AK160-30 series of four goniometer high-precision positioning stages for microscopy, crystallography, laser positioning, light measurement, and inspection.
The stages feature precision-ground worm gears with a 400:1 ratio, and pre-loaded cross roller guides offer plus-or-minus 30 degrees of travel with 30 kilograms of load.
This series of goniometer stages feature four motor options. The -01 option is stepper motor driven. The -02 option is three phase-servo motor driven with a quadrature optical encoder, the -03 version is DC servo motor driven with a quadrature optical encoder, and the -04 option is stepper motor driven with quadrature optical encoders for position verification.
This AK160-30 goniometer series of stages has a 160-by-160-millimeter table with a precision pattern of mounting holes. The center of rotation is 136 millimeters above the surface of the table and the radius of rotation is 203 millimeters.
The size of these stages is 160 by 384 millimeters without the motor, and a load capacity of 30 kilograms. A calibrated indicator displays the angle of rotation. For more information contact OES online at www.oesincorp.com.
