Air Bearing Rotary Table w/Aperture, Direct Drive Motor and Encoder for Inspection and Precision Automation Manufacturing

POSTED 12/28/2020

Video Shows a large A-688 motorized rotary table with air bearings. High precision air bearings and direct encoder, direct drive motor - controlled by ACS EtherCat-based motion controller. The rotary table can be used in any orientation. It uses a high performance, slotless torque motor that is low-cogging and frameless and an optical direct encoder. Applications include point-to-point indexing or constant velocity scanning. (Video at PI booth at Photonics West)
