Aerotech, Inc: Gear-driven goniometric cradles
Aerotech’s AGC Series motorized mechanical goniometers are used in applications where 90° of angular travel is needed with the payload at the center of rotation, or where two axes of rotation are needed about a common point.
AGC goniometers can be mounted to standard optical tables, as well as standard Aerotech rotary stages, to provide roll, pitch, and yaw about a common 3-axis intersection. Performance includes: ±12 arc sec accuracy; ±10 arc secrepeatability; 3.5 arc sec resolution; a maximum speed of 78 degrees/second;and a maximum load of 50 kg. This flexible stage series is designed for optical alignment, payload tip/tilt, beam steering, sensor calibration, laser applications, automated manufacturing and/or testing, and multi-axis diffractometer systems.
