4 Copyright © 2007 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 4 Product Line Overview A “linear stage” is a linear actuator that is designed to support heavy loads and tolerate moment loads. To achieve this goal, linear stages have two parallel high-precision linear guide bearings. Linear guide bearings Tensioner for Belt Drive Carriage Load Plate Carriage Fastened to Belt Extruded Aluminum Housing Nylon Roller Bearings Synchronous (Timing) Belt “Rod-less Actuators” are similar to linear stages except they use a single linear bearing or nylon roller bearings that have much lower load capacity

5 Copyright © 2007 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 5 Product Line Overview Linear stages can be driven by ballscrews, synchronous timing belts, or linear motors. Synchronous timing belts and linear motors are typically used when applications require high speeds and relatively low force. Timing belt systems can achieve speeds up to 3 meters/sec. Linear motor system can achieve speeds up to 5 meters/sec. Because the cost of linear motor components continues to drop and they can achieve higher speeds than timing belts, MP-Series TM Integrated Linear Stages are designed with ballscrew and linear motor technology. Linear motor driven MP-Series TM Linear Stage Ballscrew driven MP-Series TM Linear Stage

All rights reserved. 6 Product Line Overview You may not know if you need a linear motor or ballscrew driven linear stage - only the application requirements. MP-Series TM Integrated Linear Stages allow the designer to select a linear actuator based on the desired performance and not worry about the internal drive mechanism.

7 Copyright © 2007 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 7 Product Line Overview Even though they can carry very heavy loads, most linear stages are designed for high precision applications in clean environments. MP-Series TM Integrated Linear Stages are design for industrial environments and industrial applications MP-Series Direct Drive (linear motor driven) Linear Stage Unique extruded base lowers cost and maintains structural integrity Cable track module that can be replaced in <15 minutes Strip seal provides IP30 environmental rating Heavy duty cable and connectors compatible with MP-Series accessories Access to grease ports without disassembly Home-to-hard-stop eliminates limit and home switches

8 Copyright © 2007 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All rights reserved. 8 Product Line Overview MP-Series TM Integrated Linear Stages are designed for easy integration Mounting can be accomplish using “toe-clips”, T-nuts, and thru-holes in the base of the stage. XY configurations can be created using existing mounting holes and adapter plates will be available in the future for additional configurations. XY “Stacked” System using existing mounting holes in carriage and base of stages Adapter plates (future) will allow “cantilever” configurations
