Pitch and Roll Stages

OES dual-axis stages precisely measures curvature and angles.

July 9, 2021   by DE Staff

OES (Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc.) introduced four pitch and roll stages. For each, the pitch axis (lower stage) is a goniometer stage which features preloaded cross roller guides and a 1:296 ratio worm drive with a range of travel of +/- 45 degrees and has a typical accuracy of 0.05 degrees and repeatability of +/- 0.01 degrees. The roll axis (upper stage) is also a goniometer stage wit cross roller guides but with a 1:352 gear ratio worm drive and a range of travel of +/- 10 degrees. This stage has a 65mm x 65mm table and also has a typical accuracy of 0.05 degrees and repeatability of +/- 0.01 degrees. The PR120-45-10-01 (pictured) and the PR120-45-10-04 have optical encoders and are stepper motor driven. The PR120-45-10-02 is driven by three phase servo motors and the PR120-45-10-03 is driven by DC servo motors; and each have quardrature incremental encoders. Each axis features a calibrated scale to visually display the angle of rotation. The maximum speed with stepper motors is 14 degrees/second and 45 degrees/second with servo motors.
