Oriental Motor - New Flat Type and TS Geared PKP Series Stepper Motors

Ultra-compact, lightweight and stepper motors with improved torque and low backlash join the PKP Series.

Oriental Motor is pleased to expand the PKP Series stepper motor product line-up with the introduction of the PKP Series 2-phase Flat Type and PKP Series 5-phase TS Geared.


The new 2-phase Flat Type is an ultra-compact and light weight entry to the PKP Series of stepper motors. It is available in two frame sizes; 1.65" (42 mm) or 2.22" (56.4 mm) frame size. The 1.65" frame size Flat Type has a motor body length of 17 mm while the 2.22" frame size has a motor body length of just 16 mm. The Flat Type PKP Series stepper motor can be installed in a narrow space due to its flat profile design where conventional stepper motors would not fit. This makes the Flat Type an ideal solution for applications that require a low profile motor with high position accuracy and low torque requirement.

The new 5-phase PKP Series with TS gearhead is made with a simple spur gear design. The TS type gearhead has the same level of accuracy when compared to our tapered (TH) type without the added cost of tapering. This reduces backlash and improves both torque and high speed performance.

The new PKP Series stepper motors now uses neodymium magnet in its rotor design, which allows for lower vibration compared to the original PKP Series motors. For the optimal results, use the new PKP stepper motors with their respective CVD bipolar driver.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
