Ceramic motor driven miniature positioning stages

Share this on social media:

Complementing and completing Nanomotion's range of ceramic motor driven miniature positioning stages, the new FBG series goniometer is available in four stack sizes. These combine to provide a common pivoting point for a two-axis tip/tilt angular motion set-up with a positioning resolution as low as 1 arc second.

Available from Heason Technology, the low profile stages provide pivot axis radii of 71, 96, 102 and 137mm. As with the FB series linear stages, the FBZ vertical wedge stage, and the FBR rotary stage, the new FBG goniometer features Nanomotion's HR series high force ceramic motors with non-contact optical encoders and precision cross roller bearings. With the encoders and bearings in a precise curved design that follows the travel profile, the goniometer stage provides a wide dynamic speed range with very high acceleration characteristics, exceptional smoothness with high stiffness, zero backlash, and an excellent load carrying capacity.
