AGC motorized mechanical goniometers are used in applications where 90 degrees of angular travel is needed with the payload at the center of rotation, or where two axes of rotation are needed about a common point. AGC goniometers are designed to be mounted to standard optical tables, as well as standard Aerotech rotary stages, to provide roll, pitch, and yaw about a common 3-axis intersection. This flexible stage series is ideal for optical alignment, payload tip/tilt, beam steering, sensor calibration, laser applications, automated manufacturing and/or testing, and multi-axis diffractometer systems.
The sizes within the AGC family are designed to be mounted on one another to form a three-axis rotary system with all three axes of rotation sharing a common intersection point. This allows compact pitch/roll/yaw systems to be created easily from a standard stage platform and without special adapter plates or mating fixtures. The drive mechanism for AGC stages is a precision gear and matched worm that are preloaded to reduce backlash. All AGC stages include optical limit switches and hard stops to define a ±45 degree range of travel.
