Continuous Rotation Subsystem


Design Features

  • Motion subsystem designed to incorporate customer electrical equipment on top of a continuous rotation rotary axis
  • Integrated low-noise slip ring to pass electrical signals through the rotation stage
  • Stainless-steel mechanics for improved stability and repeatability over an extended time period
  • High-precision air-bearing vertical stage to reduce geometric errors throughout stage travel
  • Direct-drive rotary stage and linear-motor vertical stage for high-resolution positioning
  • Integrated pneumatic counterbalance to support vertically oriented linear motor and customer payload
  • Low-noise linear amplifiers to enable isolated measurements of the customer’s equipment
  • Applications include metrology and inspection
