Motorized Rotation Stage Selection Guide

Motorized rotation stages are a set of precision positioning products designed and built over many decades of experience in providing solutions to research and academia to industry and defense markets. Applications of Rotation Stages include semiconductor wafer inspection or scribing, metrology, micro-robotics, sensor testing, disk texturing, optics positioning like polarizers, waveplates, etc. The Newport rotation stages offering ranges from the direct drive, direct read, high rotation speed, RGV100BL to the multi-use low-cost NSR1 Universal Rotator, over 100 model numbers to choose from. Metric and vacuum versions are available and if required, multiple axis designs, OEM or custom solutions may be quoted.
