Steinmeyer Introduces New Low Profile Goniometer Stages
These stages are designed for precision applications in the medical device, optics, photonics and aerospace industries
Both offer a travel range of +/-10 degrees. The smaller ST114-DC stage, with a rotation center of 53 mm, has an overall table size of 62 X 75 mm and is less than 42 mm high. This stage weighs just 0.6 kg, offers a maximum speed of 25 degrees per second and can handle loads up to 50 Newtons.
The larger ST129-DC stage has a rotation center of 114 mm and an overall table size of 79 X 97 mm. This stage weighs 0.8 kg, offers a maximum speed of 14 degree per second and can handle loads of up to 80 Newtons. Rotation center deviation for either model is 5 microns per degree.
Both stages are equipped with an integrated DC motor and are available with a choice of rotary or linear encoders for position feedback. According to the companys press release, the stages may be mounted to each other to produce rotation in two axes.
