Original Press Release:

Pitch-and-Roll Stages from OES!

Van Nuys, CA – Measure Pitch-and-Roll, do micro machining, align mirrors for scanning electron microscopes, rotate objects to precise positions, measure angles of objects such as crystals or move an object to a precise angular position along an arc, examining cutting edges of medical instruments, estimating measurements of radiation patterns of LEDs, hyperspectral bidirectional reflectance, or provide orthogonal rotation (Def Orthogonal - Two lines or curves are Orthogonal if they are perpendicular at the point of intersection - Wolfram / MathWorld).

OES offers an expanded series of Pitch-and-Roll Stages to meet the requirements of the specific requirements of applications such as: Angle range - 20° (± 10°), 30° (± 15°), and 90° (± 45°), height of rotation, size (foot print), and load capacity. Typical accuracies for each stage are: Repeatability: ± 4 minutes (240 arc seconds), positional accuracy ± 8 minutes (480 arc seconds), and backlash ± 3 minutes (180 arc seconds). 

The precision, Pitch-and-Roll Stages are available with either stepper motors with knobs for manual adjustment, or quadrature optical encoders on stepper motors for position verification. They are also available servo motors for closed loop operation and higher operating speed. The Pitch-and-Roll Stages can be supplied plug-and-play with a motion controller. Any of the Stacked Pitch-and Roll Stages are easily integrated into an inspection, testing, or manufacturing environment.
