Griffin Motion Announces High-Precision, 360° Continuous Travel RTS-DD Series Rotary Motion Platform

Apex, NC --- Griffin Motion announces its high-precision, 360° continuous travel RTS-DD Series rotary motion platform. Exhibiting exceptional angular accuracy (30arcsec), repeatability (3arcsec), and resolution (0.324arcsec), in addition to high angular velocity (480deg/s), excellent axial and radial run-out (5µm), and exemplary wobble (10arcsec), RTS-DD Series rotary stages are ideal for use in a variety of laboratory, factory automation, and semiconductor processing applications, including: inspection, laser marking and machining, optical positioning, wafer alignment, and rate table, pan-and-tilt, and beam steering operations.

RTS-DD Series precision rotary stages feature a compact, low profile design that helps minimize abbe errors when used in conjunction with another motion axis, and a brushless direct-drive servo motor that eliminates backlash and improves reliability by eliminating sliding friction throughout the stage. The series also features a high-resolution optical encoder with a precision index mark for homing, and a 30mm through-bore to enable the convenient routing of vacuum or high voltage lines for a wide range of wafer chucks.

Made in the USA, the compact and low profile RTS-DD Series precision rotary motion platforms measure 133mm (5.24”) x 110mm (4.33”) x 55mm (2.17”) with regard to length, width, and height. Standard lead-time for the series is four weeks, but expedited lead-times can be accommodated upon request.
