Calibration and Precision Angular Positioning

High Precision Angular Positioning, Calibration and Geometry Inspection

Ultraprecise rotary tables intended for fine inspection, metrology and test applications.

Typical applications include:

  • Calibration of optical components and devices.
  • Manufacture and calibration of precision polygons.
  • Angular calibration of precision instruments such as tilt metres, inclinometers, encoders, indexers, gyroscopes and guidance systems.
  • Direct integration with 3rd party machine or via our Axia motion control system.
  • Precision angular positioning of large and heavy components.
  • Fourth axis for precision Cylindrical Form Measuring Machines.

Why choose RPI?

Incredible Accuracy – Our range of angular accuracy and repeatability offers a positional capability of 1 μ to 10 μ at a radius of 200 mm significantly reducing your measurement uncertainty while assuring part quality and improving your process repeatability and reproducibility.

Very High Stability – The high resolution closed loop drive ensures that your part remains within 0.00005° of where you sent it regardless of external influences.

Extensive Load Capacity – From the smallest electronic components to the largest mechanical assemblies LabStandards load capacity allows for single or multiple components to be tested in a single set up significantly improving throughput and efficiency.

Superior Durability – Intelligent designs robust for almost any environment while maintaining performance normally reserved for the standard labs require extremely low maintenance and return a service life measured in decades.

Flexible Configuration – The LabStandard rotary table is multitalented and can be set up both vertically and horizontally. Our cleverly designed fixturing interface offers total versatility as standard.

Simple Operation – Forget mindboggling operating systems, LabStandard is run on the intuitive ArcMotion software with the option to operate remotely with your phone or tablet using our handy app. Reduce your process times with the built in step and repeat function for easy sequencing and positioning of your part.
