Newport Introduces Affordable, URS Precision Rotation Stages

Irvine, CA - Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, announces the URS50BCC and the URS50BPP precision rotation stages which feature 360 degrees, continuous motion. The new stages feature the smallest footprint (50mm size) and very affordable pricing, while maintaining the high performance of Newport's URS motion product family.

The URS50BCC and the URS50BPP provide backlash-free, continuous rotation with extremely high MTBF (up to 20,000) and very low wobble. Competitively priced, these high performance rotation stages offer large stage performance in a small package. Both stages offer exceptional 6 µm eccentricity and easy integration.

The URS50B's feature a unique, two-part bearing design with pre-tempered steel gears and bearings, to ensure precision and long-life motion positioning. The URS50BCC, the DC- motor version with index pulse for precision homing, is the ideal choice for demanding 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, please visit:
