Meet the BHD Belt Driven Actuator
The most popular of the OSPE family, the BHD offers an extremely high-capacity belt-driven actuator in a low-profile package. The integrated square rail bearing design captures the bearing and drive train completely within the IP54 sealed unit and creates extensive environmental protection for the internal components.

Aluminum Alloys: Do You Know the Difference?
Do you have a stack of t-slot aluminum framing catalogs or a folder of pdf datasheets from extrusion manufacturers that contains an almost endless amount of data on the material? For a person who specializes in this area, deciphering the material specifications for t-slot aluminum structural framing can be a fairly simple task.

Introducing the mPR

Parker’s Electromechanical and Drives Division ‒ North America is pleased to announce the release of the mPR (miniature precision rotary) stage. The mPR series is a miniature, precision direct-drive rotary stage with integrated high-precision rotary bearing, high-resolution rotary encoder, and 3-phase AC servo motor.  

Choosing the Right Screw Drive Train

There is no “one size fits all” drive train linear actuator technology for every application. In reality, the selection depends entirely on what is most critical to a specific application. While choosing to use a lead screw seems straight forward, choosing between ball and roller screws can be daunting. You can simplify the selection process by approaching the application systematically and applying an actuator performance calculator.

Introducing the eCL Series
The new E Series Closed-Loop stepper drives and motors bring higher performance, a compact foot print and attractive pricing to the portfolio. The eCL series introduces simple and precise closed loop control to Parker’s microstepping product platform. Available in two driver form factors, standard (4Arms) and mini (2Arms), the eCL system optimizes performance with a wide array of stepper motors with integrated encoder feedback (Nema8, 11, 14, 17, 23, 60mm).
Specifying Made Easier

Parker’s Universal Motor Adapter (UMA) makes it easier than ever for machine designers to specify their linear stage with whatever motor they'd like, while avoiding the often drawn-out customization process.

Pairing Gearheads with Servo Motors

Machine designers are increasingly turning to gearheads to take advantage of the latest advances in servo motor technology. Essentially, a gearhead converts high-speed, low-torque energy into low-speed, high-torque output. A servo motor provides highly accurate positioning of its output shaft. When these two devices are paired with one another, they enhance each other’s strengths, providing controlled motion that is precise, robust, and reliable.
