Direct-drive rotary stage
The Aerotech ASR1300 achieves accelerations of up to 8000 rad/s2 and reaches speeds greater than 1500 rpm in only 90° of travel.
Aerotech’s ASR1300 high-speed, direct-drive rotary stage achieves accelerations of up to 8000 rad/s2 and reaches speeds greater than 1500 rpm in only 90° of travel, making it perfect for the most demanding tube-handling applications and high-throughput manufacturing processes. The ASR1300’s maximum speed of 3000 rpm and its outstanding acceleration capability result from a full system-level optimization of the torque-to-inertia ratio. The ASR1300 facilitates higher throughput levels on supporting motion equipment and ultimately lower part manufacturing costs and increased production capacity. The ASR1300 features an integral Type-D (Louis Levin & Sons) collet chuck. Collets are readily available in multiple sizes supporting tube diameters from 0.1 mm to 2.0 mm. These collets provide outstanding runout characteristics for applications requiring high-precision gripping of tubular material. Applying air pressure adjusts the collet from fully open to fully closed. Air is delivered to the rotating collet assembly through a custom-engineered, noncontact rotary union that ensures a lifetime of maintenance-free operation.
