Linear positioner ideal for space restricted applications
MX45S miniature linear positioner is ideal for medical, research and laboratory ’space-restricted’ applications.
New from Parker’s Electromechanical Automation Division and available from Micromech, is the release of the MX45S linear positioner a 45mm wide miniature screw-driven positioner based on the award winning MX80 family.
Like its predecessor the MX45S has been developed for OEMs requiring reliable linear positioning in space-restricted applications.
Designed with anti-cage creep cross roller-bearings this positioner allows users to position up to 7 kg of normal load on the currently available standard travel lengths (5mm, 15mm and 25mm). The MX45S can be supplied with a high-efficiency leadscrew or a high-precision ballscrew, both of which are capable of producing 40N of thrust at linear velocities of 20mm/s and 30mm/s respectively.
Ideally suited applications for the MX45S include biomedical imaging, fibre optic alignment, semiconductor inspection and laser diode research.
It has been designed for applications requiring small incremental movements, micron repeatability, smooth motion and high stiffness yet all in an ultra-compact package. In addition to superior performance the MX45S is offered with several standard options to allow users to match the positioner’s performance with the application’s requirements.
Additional design features include:
· Ultra-compact profile (25mm high X 45mm wide and lengths of 65, 75 or 90mm)
· 30mm/s max velocity
· Stepper motor driven
· Standard multi-axis configurations
