ROTOR - Rotation Stage
Characteristics – ROTOR - Rotation Stage
The piezoelectric based rotary stages ROTOR 10 and the ROTOR 10 SG, one axis low voltage rotary stages, are a development within our ultra-fast ROTOR line. The piezo element provides a long steering and scanning range of up to 11 mrad. Key feature for all piezomechanically driven stages is the nearly unlimited position resolution. The well defined axis of rotation is centrically located. An incorporated free aperture makes these stages useful for axial beam applications.
The piezo stage series ROTOR 10 is not limited for the use as a positioning instrument for physics only. More and more the piezo based ROTOR stages are common for applications in the field of high precision positioning of instrument for biological systems like needle adjustment or fiber alignement.
Due to FEA-optimization, these stages meet the highest dynamical performance and high planar guiding accuracy. This is accomplished even with high mass loads in a compact package.
Our optimization also incorporates excellent temperature compensation properties for the stage. The sophisticated monolithic guidance design of the solid flexure hinges means the trajectory is free of mechanical play and friction - a feature provided by all stages of Piezosystem Jena.

Rotary Drive/Rotation Stage with continuous movement around its axis
Piezosystem jena offers with Rotary Stages with continuous movement around its axis. It uses a stepping motor. The stage can be used as rotary stage for contiuous drive or as a stepper motor. On behalf of the special drive concept a backward motion in both modes is possible.
