Description

Design Features

  • Features large, clear aperture up to 200 mm for mounting optics, cameras, process equipment, cabling & more
  • Configurable with direct encoder option for enhanced positioning precision
  • Accommodates payloads up to 425kg
  • Offers continuous 360° rotation with configurable travel limits available
  • Integrates easily in multi-axis configurations

Key Applications

AGR stages are ideal for a variety of precision industrial and laboratory applications, including:

  • Laser processing
  • Measurement & inspection
  • Sample positioning
  • Nondestructive testing
  • Pointing, scanning & tracking
  • Integration into gimbal systems

Construction Features

The presence of a large, clear aperture in the stage allows the AGR series to address applications requiring a through-hole or accommodations to mount an optic, including articulation of beam polarizing lenses, through-holes for cabling and/or air lines, or vision/camera/inspection applications.

The AGR stage base is fabricated from an aluminum alloy that offers significant weight savings in multi-axis arrangements and other weight critical applications, while providing high structural stiffness and long-term stability.

Each stage is designed with two high-precision angular contact bearings with optimal spacing to provide excellent error motions coupled with high load capacities in a small, compact package.

Flexible Options

Options include flexible motor selections as well as a direct encoder mounted to the stage shaft for outstanding repeatability and to virtually eliminate hysteresis and backlash. Vacuum-compatible versions (for use in pressures as low as 10-6 torr) are also available.

Motor and Drives

Standard AGR stage configurations feature Aerotech’s brushless servomotors. However, all AGR stages can be outfitted with stepper or DC brush motors. A full range of matching drives and controls are available for a complete single-source solution.
