Newport Corporation has introduced its UMR-TRA XY stages. The new line of integrated XY stages are built from reliable, industry-standard UMR linear stages and TRA actuators. Affordable and compact, the small footprint measures only 90mm wide and 38mm high, including the base plate. The UMR-TRA-XY stages are specially designed for applications in confined spaces, making them an excellent choice for a wide range of motion control tasks in research and industry.
The UMR-TRA has 12.5mm travel and is available in imperial or metric versions, DC or stepper motor, and a vacuum-compatible stepper-motor version, which is compatible down to 10-6hPa. For research, the stage is ideal for use in vacuum applications and other space-restricted setups. For industrial applications, the robust stage is qualified for laser beam positioning and can withstand high machine accelerations. The UMR-TRA is compatible with all of Newport’s popular motion controllers, from the hand-held NewStep single-axis stepper-motor controller, to the sophisticated and high performance XPS universal controller.
