OES’ XYZR Series of four-axes stages available with four motor options.
OES (Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc.) has added its XYZR Series to their line of purpose-built stages. The four-axes series are the integration of any combination of 15mm, 30mm, 50mm, 75mm, or 100mm linear stages for the X, Y, and Z axes, and a 60mm or 100mm diameter rotary stage capable of 360 degrees of continuous rotation. The series comes in four options. The -01 option is stepper motor driven, the -02 option is three phase-servo motor driven with a quadrature optical encoder, the -03 is dc servo motor driven with a Quadrature Optical Encoder, and the -04 option is stepper motor driven with quadrature optical encoders. The linear axes feature 1mm per turn lead screws and the 100mm linear travel stage has a 4mm per turn lead screw. Typical repeatability and positional accuracy of a stepper motor driven stage is 10 microns.
