Yaw-Pitch StageMotion Control Machine Building
OES motorized designed for the precise measurement of angles or the curvature of an object.
OES has introduced its YP100-45-01 and YP100-45-02 Dual-axis Yaw and Pitch Stages that feature a yaw axis capable of rotation in either direction and an integrated Pitch axis with a travel of +/- 45 degrees. The YP100-45-01 (stepper motor driven, as pictured) and the YP100-45-02 (brushless servo motor driven). The yaw axis has a maximum speed of 14 degrees per second with a stepper motor and 45 degrees per second with a servo motor, and has a resolution of 0.001 degrees equal to 3.6 arc sec when the resolution of the micro-step is 10. The positional accuracy is 0.05 degrees, and repeatability is +/-0.01 degrees.
The pitch stage has an 80mm x 80mm table with a precision pattern of threaded holes for mounting tooling and fixtures, a rotation center height of 50 mm, a resolution of 0.001 degrees equal to 3.6 arc-sec when the resolution of the micro-step is 10. The positional accuracy is 0.05 degrees and repeatability is +/-0.01 degrees. The pitch axis is equipped with end of travel limit switches to signal the motion controller to stop the motion at each end.
