Rotary Stage provides 360-degree continuous travel.

Press Release Summary:




Exhibiting angular accuracy of 30 arcsec, repeatability of 3 arcsec, and 0.324 arcsec resolution, RTS-DD Series is suited for laboratory, factory automation, and semiconductor processing applications. Low profile design helps minimize abbe errors when used with another motion axis, while brushless direct-drive servo motor eliminates backlash. Series also features optical encoder with precision index mark for homing, and 30 mm through-bore to enable routing of vacuum or high-voltage lines.

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



Ideal for use in a variety of laboratory, factory automation, & semiconductor processing applications, RTS-DD Series rotary stages deliver superlative precision, accuracy, & repeatability at an unbeatable price/performance ratio within abbreviated lead-times



Apex, NC — Griffin Motion, a precision motion equipment manufacturer that designs and develops extremely precise modular and application-specific motion solutions that deliver accuracies from microns to nanometers, 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.



“RTS-DD Series precision rotary stages provide superlative precision, accuracy, and repeatability at an unbeatable price/performance ratio, and, by virtue of their clean, low-profile design and 30mm through-bore, enable easier and more convenient design-in than competing platforms,” said Josh Houghton, chief operating officer, Griffin Motion. “We can also customize RTS stages with customer-specified mounting holes and application-specific positioning resolution within standard, and often even expedited, lead-times.”



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.
