Precision Closed Loop Turret Positioning System

With our partner Reliance Precision out of the UK, we design, develop, and manufacture "custom" products. Below is an example of a mechanism that incorporates a high precision anti-backlash gearing to position and provide closed loop feedback of the position.

High Precision Control

Anti-backlash Precision Gear System

We collaborate with your engineering team to design
and build prototypes for evaluation just for your application.

Very Compact and Lightweight

Can be supplied as complete subassembly with motor, encoder, wiring harness, and electrical connector.

These geared systems are well suited for precisely controlling optics, high tech cameras, and IR devices used in UAV's, drones, or unmanned vehicles.

A geared turret unit may be utilized to aim a payload, such as a camera, with respect to the support platform.   In particular, the turret unit may aim the payload by controlled pivotal movement of constituent gimbals of a gimbal asssembly relative to the support platform.

Key features of our geared systems:

  • Extremely light weight yet durable. Metal not related to function or integrity of the product is machined away.
  • Fault tolerance via multiple measurement points.
  • Designed for extreme "G" forces and harsh usage.
  • Capable of extreme temperature operation.
  • Operates free of any lubricant that would normally interfere with optics.

Anti-backlash Gear Products

We have the capabilities to design and manufacturer precise close loop geared feedback systems. If you need to move say a turret or a turntable head in a precise fashion, you can send and electronic command to the motor driver and hope that it moves to the desired position. Basically an open loop control system. However, if you need to verify that in fact you are at that position then you need a close loop feedback control system.

Now lets go further and do this dynamically at high speed in an environment with vibration and high "G" force loads over a large thermal temperature range. Now you need a high quality gear system for accurate data transmission. Now you need us.

These products is used in both military and commercial applications.
