Precision rotation stages offer 360-degree continuous motion

July 27, 2010
Irvine, CA--Newport Corporation launched the URS50BCC and the URS50BPP precision rotation stages that offer 360-degree continuous motion.

Irvine, CA--Newport Corporation, which offers a broad portfolio of motion-control and vibration-control products, launched the URS50BCC and the URS50BPP precision rotation stages that offer 360-degree continuous motion. The new stages have a very small footprint (50 mm size) with affordable pricing, while maintaining the performance of Newport's URS motion product family.

Newport Corporation says the URS50BCC and the URS50BPP provide backlash-free, continuous rotation with extremely high MTBF (up to 20,000) and very low wobble. Both stages offer 6 micron eccentricity and easy integration.

The URS50B's have a two-part bearing design with pre-tempered steel gears and bearings for precision and long-life motion positioning. The URS50BCC, the DC- motor version with index pulse for precision homing is specifically for applications that require bi-directional positioning.

The more economical URSBPP stepper motor version is suitable for less-demanding, yet precision rotation applications. A cable is included with each URS50B for plug-and-play compatibility with SMC, ESP, and XPS. For more information about Newport's new URS products, go to www.newport.com/URS50.
