Optimal Engineering introduces AK130-15 goniometer stage

October 27, 2016 - Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) offers a solution for the precise measurement of angles or the rotation of an object to a precise angular position.  The AK130-15 Goniometer Stage is 2.362 in. (60 mm) high and the height of the center of rotation is 4.724in. (120 mm).  The 4.724in. x 5.118 in. (120 mm x 130 mm) table has +/- 15o of rotation at speeds up to 10 o/sec, and features a precision ground worm gear with a 304:1 ratio and a resolution of 0.0005o with a 10 micro-step per step stepper motor driver; the stage is also available with a servo motor and optical encoder.  This goniometer stage is ideal for: Microscopy, crystallography, measurement of surgical cutting blades, laser positioning, light measurement, and inspection applications.

This Motorized Goniometer Stage measures 12.952 in. (329 mm) long (including the standard 1.8o stepper motor by 5.118 in. (130 mm) wide and can handle loads to 33 lb (15 Kg) of load.  Mounting holes on the stage and in the base assure easy integration into an application.  A calibrated indicator displays the angle of rotation, a hand knob is provided for manual adjustment, and the stage can be ordered plug-and-play with a fully compatible controller from OES.
