Description

Design Features

  • Multiple configurations support a range of load and accuracy requirements
  • Integral rotary union for vacuum- or air-activated tooling
  • High-speed yaw axis provides up to 1000 rpm
  • High-load gear-drive or high-speed, direct-drive tilt-axis configurations
  • Optional sealing protects the system from airborne particulates
  • Brake available to limit stage motion in the unpowered state

Direct-Drive Yaw Axis

All AXR series rotary combinations feature a direct-drive yaw (B) axis. Direct-drive motors exhibit significantly higher throughput and maintenance-free operation when compared to gear- and screw-driven technology. With peak rotation speeds of up to 1000 rpm, the AXR is capable of supporting high-speed machining processes. A high-resolution encoder enables the axis to run at extremely slow speeds while maintaining excellent velocity regulation and positioning accuracy.

High-Capacity Tilt Axis

The AXR has both direct-drive and gear-driven tilt (A) axis configurations to meet the performance requirements of your specific application. The direct-drive version provides the highest possible operating speed and accuracy for demanding applications. A modular counterbalance system and different yaw mounting heights are available to balance offset loads. The tilt axis can be equipped with a brake to hold axis position when power is removed. For large load applications, the gear-drive units provide significantly higher continuous torque output while the drive mechanism limits motion in the power-off state. The precision anti-backlash gearing enables this higher torque output while still maintaining excellent accuracy and repeatability performance.

Material Handling

The AXR comes standard with an integral rotary union that provides a single pneumatic control signal to the yaw-axis tabletop for customer supplied air- or vacuum-actuated tooling. The AXR can also be outfitted with a 3-jaw manual chuck for maximum part-holding flexibility.

Scalable Product Solutions

With both direct-drive and gear-driven platforms, various yaw table locations, a scalable counterbalance, standard pneumatic feed-through, and an optional 3-jaw chuck, the AXR can be configured to meet the requirements of most two-axis rotary assemblies.

Notes:
  1. Offset loads include both the payload and stage unbalance.
  2. A linear combination of counterweight kits can be employed to achieve balance. See counterbalance chart to determine if application falls within balance limits.

Integration (Required)

Aerotech offers both standard and custom integration services to help you get your system fully operational as quickly as possible. The following standard integration options are available for this system. Please consult Aerotech if you are unsure what level of integration is required, or if you desire custom integration support with your system.

Option Description
-TAS Integration - Test as system
 
Testing, integration, and documentation of a group of components as a complete system that will be used together (ex: drive, controller, and stage). This includes parameter file generation, system tuning, and documentation of the system configuration.
-TAC Integration - Test as components
 
Testing and integration of individual items as discrete components that ship together. This is typically used for spare parts, replacement parts, or items that will not be used together. These components may or may not be part of a larger system.
