Rotary Stages Overview

Rotary Stages Overview

June 30, 2020

Akribis Systems has spent years developing and manufacturing high-efficiency and precision movement systems. As one of the few direct drive motor manufacturers that also builds stages, we can help you save money and time by combining all the necessary components for your motion system in one package.

Our rotary stages consist of the direct drive motor, rotary bearing, encoder, hall effects and temperature sensor that come together to offer a complete rotary positioning stage. These stages also feature plenty of options to choose from including motor size, radial runout, parallel or series winding, encoder resolution and temperature sensors.

Read on to learn more about our selection of rotary motor stages, and how they can work for you.


Rotary Stages Overview - AXD

AXD Series

With its low profile height and large through hole, the AXD Series is easily integrated into your existing project. Its patented iron core motor design features extremely high torque density with minimal cogging.
