Motorized Rotary Stages

 

Lexitek Inc. offers some of the most affordable Rotary Stages with a large clear aperture. The stages come in two sizes and several speed versions. Our stages are typically stepper motor driven but can also be configured with servo motors. Lexitek resells cost-effective controllers (e.g. from Arcus) complete with all necessary cables for turnkey operation.

The stages are designed for holding large optics but can also be used for various testing and inspection applications where the large clear aperture is useful.

We offer the LS-100 and HS-100 stages for 4"/100mm optics and the LS-50 for 2"/50mm optics. Click here for more details on the LS-50.

Software is provided for computer control of Lexitek's stepper motor controller. Sample applications and LabView™ Driver are provided that enable computer control of Lexitek motion systems. This enables users to build rotary motion systems quickly with minimal integration. Screenshots are available here.

Custom mounting rings are available.

The rotation stage can optionally be supplied in a water resistant stage configuration.
