HV & UHV Goniometers

ADC’s tilt stages provide a rigid, accurate motion for general goniometric use. Each stage is stepper motor driven and curved linear bearing guided stages with a rugged anodized aluminum body. The top and bottom mounting surfaces are precision ground to provide an optimal interface.


The TS-300, TS-310, TS-400, and TS-410 stages use a tangent bar type mechanism to facilitate the rotary motion. A stepper motor driven linear actuator interfaces to the stage through a limited rotation flexure style bearing. This interface results in a highly resolved, very rigid rotary motion. The stage is guided by preloaded ball type profiled linear rails. An optional optical encoder gives closed loop feedback for the device.


The TS-50, TS-90, and TS-160 use curved crossed roller bearings for the highest possible rigidity and profiled trajectory. The drive mechanism is a precision ground worm wheel segment and stepper motor driven worm.


The UHV version of the TS series tilt stages are designed to function in a 10-9 torr environment.
