OES (Optimal Engineering Systems Inc.) has added to their line of purpose-built stages. The new XYZR Series of Four-axes Stages are the integration of a: 15 mm, 30 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm, or 100 mm linear stages (in any combination) for the X, Y, and Z axes, and a 60 mm or 100 mm diameter rotary stage capable of 360 degrees of continuous rotation. These stages are suitable for laser scanning, drilling, and machining, reverse engineering, inspection, assembly, measurements, tracking, and positioning.
This series of four axes 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 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.
Each axis of these black anodized aluminum alloy stages features high precision crossed roller bearings. The 15 mm, 30 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm linear axes feature high precision 1 mm per turn lead screws and the 100 mm linear travel stage has a 4 mm per turn lead screw. Typical repeatability and positional accuracy of a stepper motor driven stage is 10 microns. For higher resolutions and greater travel speeds select one of the closed loop servo motor options.
The rotary axis is equipped with a HOME switch to signal the motion controller the ZERO position. Each rotary axis has a pattern of precision mounting holes for mounting tooling and the 100 mm diameter stage has a thru hole. The linear axes are equipped with limit switches to signal the motion controller that end of travel is reached.
Each of these stages can be ordered with a fully plug-and-play compatible multi-axis motion controller for any motor combination from OES. For more information, visit: www.oesincorp.com.
