Parker Launches mPR Series Stage

Parker's Electromechanical and Drives Division - North America has announced the release of the miniature precision rotary (mPR) stage. The mPR series is a miniature, precision direct-drive rotary stage with integrated high-precision rotary bearing, high-resolution rotary encoder and 3-phase AC servomotor. It has been engineered to deliver a combination of modularity, flexibility and performance in a compact package.

"The mPR's many features make it the ideal positioner for a number of high-tech industries," said Travis Schneider, Product Marketing Manager of Precision Mechanics. "Applications in metrology systems, laser processing / machining, electronics manufacturing and semiconductor manufacturing, for example, will benefit from the stage's combination of size, low profile and high precision."

The mPR 80 has common mounting features to that of Parker's MX80 linear stage, as well as the mSR 80/100, and the mPR 100 size has common mounting features to that of our 404XR linear positioner so users will be able to quickly and easily create complete multi-axis systems using the mPR.

Standard features of the mPR series include:

  • Two form factors (mPR 80 - 80 mm dia. X 75 mm and mPR 100 - 104 mm dia. X 90 mm tall)
  • Continuous 360° operation
  • Four encoder resolutions (3 - digital incremental, 1 - analog sine/cosine)
  • Dowel holes in top and base for repeatable pinning
  • Through-hole aperture
  • Direct mounting features to Parker MX, mSR and XR stages
  • 3-meter, high-flex cables
  • Lightweight aluminum construction.
