Aerotech’s ASR series direct-drive rotary stage was designed to meet the demanding needs of high-performance precision machining. The low-inertia motor and high-accuracy encoder make it the ideal combination of speed and accuracy.
- High dynamic, precision performance
- Low inertia shaft for maximum acceleration
- Package design optimized to minimize stage weight

The design of the ASR series direct-drive rotary stage was optimized to minimize stage weight. The resulting product – with a net overall weight under 5 kg – is significantly lighter than previous offerings. When used to replace an existing rotary stage in a multiple-axis system, an increase in performance can be expected for all positioning stages carrying the rotary stage.
A large aperture aids high-volume production by providing the means for continuous product feedthrough. For applications requiring a collet, several shaft options are available to easily interface to existing machine designs.
Aerotech manufactures a wide range of matching drives and controls to provide a fully integrated and optimized solution. Aerotech’s high-power brushless amplifiers are available in several convenient packages and the controller options range from stand-alone indexers to sophisticated PC-bus-based controllers with unmatched contouring routines and system tools.
