Nippon Pulse's SLP Linear Stage System for Industrial Applications



Nippon Pulse, a leader in the motion control industry, is now offering its high precision SLP Acculine single-axis linear stage series that simplifies the transition from traditional linear motion systems including ball-screws, belt and chain drives, and pneumatic actuators. The SLP stage has incorporated Nippon Pulse's successful Linear Shaft Motor into an all-inclusive stage that offers solutions for industrial applications.

As an all-inclusive stage, the SLP series integrates shaft support within the housing and simplifies the transition from conventional ball-screw systems. Because the SLP stage features Nippon Pulse's Linear Shaft Motor, it is a low-profile, high-precision product. With the highest force-to-volume ratio available on the market, the SLP stage is a perfect solution for those with space limitations. Compared with every other linear stage available on the market, the SLP stage features the smallest dead zone.

Nippon Pulse's Linear Shaft Motor, has three basic concepts. It is simple, consisting of only a magnetic shaft and a forcer. The shaft motor is also high-precision, offering sub micron resolution. This comes as a result of several factors, including stiffness up to 100 times greater than other linear motors, less heat generation, no cogging issues, and no Eddy currents. Also non-contact, the shaft motor has a non-critical air-gap that eliminates variation in force over the stroke of the device.

Nippon Pulse America, Inc. is a fully-owned American subsidiary of Nippon Pulse Motor Co., Ltd of Tokyo, Japan. Nippon Pulse offers various controllers (boards and chips), drivers (boards and chips), and motors (tin-can, hybrid and linear servo) to cover almost any motion application.
