PARKER's MX80 Micro Stage, the smallest linear servomotor driven positioner in the industry, is loaded with high performance features for both rapid linear translation and precise positioning of smaller loads in small work enveloped.

Designed for today's 24/7 production demands, the MX80, available from Motion Solutions , has redefined "high-throughput automation" in the world of miniature positioners.

While the MX80 is small in size and weight, it is large on performance and reliability. All key components are "built-in' - residing within the body of the stage to provide a clean looking, reliable, unobstructed package.

At the heart of the MX80 is an innovative, non-contact linear servo motor (patent pending). This direct drive motor has been optimised for force, speed and acceleration, to deliver outstanding performance and response.

A high precision non-contact linear encoder provides submicron resolution, repeatability and accuracy. Selectable resolutions range from 20 nanometers to 5 microns.

Precision ground crossed roller bearing sets with a "zero cage creep" feature provide extremely smooth - precise linear translation. Optical travel limit and home sensors are conveniently designed into the unit for easy adjustment over the entire travel of the stage. Although there are no moving cables, a metre of hi-flex cabling is included and wired directly into the units.

The MX80 is offered in four travel lengths (25, 50, 100, 150mm), and two performance grades - precision and standard. All units include convenient tooling features.

Two dowel pin holes are provided for work piece removal and realignment, and a master reference surface allows fixturing or other tooling elements to be precisely aligned with the travel axis.
