Compact & very precise rotation stage


The XRT-U-40 is a compact and very precise rotation stage driven by an ultrasonic piezo motor. With the XRT-U-40, you can achieve error motion values close to an air bearing rotary stage, but in a smaller volume and for a lower price.

Compared to other piezo motor technologies, an ultrasonic piezo motor ensures you a non-degrading and vibration-free precision without generating any undesired dither motion during standstill. This makes the XRT-U a state-of-the-art rotation stage for applications such as micro-CT scanners, metrology applications and vacuum and non-magnetic applications, such as electron microscopy.
