Miniature Rotation Stage for Industry and Research

Q-614” miniature rotation positioning systems featuring high position resolution. With its turntable of only 14 mm in diameter and just 10 mm high, the rotation stage is one of the smallest precision rotation stages available on the market and is currently the smallest rotation stage within a series of stages with turntables measuring 22 mm or 30 mm in diameter which allows them to be equipped with an additional position sensor for closed-loop operation.
