High-Speed, Direct-Drive Rotary Stage with Collet Chuck

Optimized system design for maximum acceleration

High-speed operation (up to 3000 rpm)

Integral captive pneumatic collet-chuck for minimal part motion during clamping

Type-D collet accepts 0.1 mm to 2 mm O.D. tubing

Clear aperture and guide system for product feed-through

Direct-drive brushless motor with optional water cooling for performance stability

Maintenance-free, frictionless rotary union

The ASR1300 high-speed, direct-drive rotary stage achieves accelerations of up to 8000 rad/s2 and reaches speeds greater than 1500 rpm in only 90° of travel, making it perfect for the most demanding tube-handling applications and high-throughput manufacturing processes. The ASR1300’s maximum speed of 3000 rpm and its outstanding acceleration capability result from a full system-level optimization of the torque-to-inertia ratio.  Supremely agile, the ASR1300 facilitates higher throughput levels on supporting motion equipment and ultimately lower part manufacturing costs and increased production capacity.

Compact and Lightweight
The ASR1300 is the smallest and most dynamic member of Aerotech’s ASR-series rotary stage family. Weighing a mere 2.8 kg, the ASR1300 is nearly 50% lighter than the ASR1200. Multi-axis systems accelerate faster, with less dynamic error, due to the ASR1300’s minimized weight and package size resulting in impressive process optimization and improvement.

Superior Material Handling Capability
The ASR1300 features an integral Type-D (Louis Levin & Sons™) collet chuck. Collets are readily available in multiple sizes supporting tube diameters from 0.1 mm to 2.0 mm. These collets provide outstanding runout characteristics for applications requiring high-precision gripping of tubular material. Applying air pressure adjusts the collet from fully open to fully closed. Air is delivered to the rotating collet assembly through a custom-engineered, noncontact rotary union that ensures a lifetime of maintenance-free operation.
