Rotary Stage for X-Ray Imaging

Ibex rotary

Challenge: An x-ray imaging OEM needed to rotate samples during the imaging process and needed a large through-bore to accommodate their existing equipment.  The axial and radial runout was extremely critical to maintain image fidelity throughout rotation.

Solution: Motion Solutions designed a rotary stage with a high precision bearing with a large through-bore and is driven by a worm gear arrangement.  An optical scale was placed close to the payload to maximize precision throughout the rotation.

Result: Position of the sample being imaged is precise throughout rotation without the OEM needing to redesign their existing equipment to accommodate the Theta axis.

Our Design Process

“It’s really important to thoroughly understand the application. We would start by reviewing the statement of work or application information that the customer provides, and then we would have a consultative meeting to make sure that we really understand how the system should function, and all of the nuances that are associated with it.”
