Phoenix-based Lincoln Laser will introduce its latest motor polygon assembly, the MPC-32, at CLEO '97. The compact MPC-32 scanner, the smallest of its type on the market, utilizes the Lincoln Laser patented air bearing and offers a low cost alternative for high-speed scanning applications. Licnoln will occupy Booth #0740 at the show to be held in Baltimore, MD, May 18-23. A sample motor assembly and demonstration of Lincoln's web-site will be set up at the booth.

"The MPC-32 is the fastest of its type and size on the market today," said Robert Nehbras, Jr., vice president of sales at Lincoln Laser. "Combined with its reduction in size, it is very significant to the industry. The release secures Lincoln as a top manufacturer in the business, both nationally and abroad."

The MPC-32's unique features include:

  • - Speed Range from 16000 to 32000 RPM, allowing for faster data output
  • - Compact size, about 1/4 the size of other standard motor polygon assemblies
  • - Low cost, resulting from integration of polygon and drive system
  • - Speed Stability of <0.015% over 1000 revolutions
  • - Greatest Mean Time Between Failure in its class

Xerox is one of many companies that have realized the advantages of using Lincoln's Scanner Technology in their products. "Lincoln has the only low cost, high performance motor polygon assembly which meets our requirements," said Vinod Mirchandani, Xerox Corporation engineer. "The motor polygon assembly has a very large impact in determining the image quality the machine is capable of producing."

Lincoln also recently expanded its coating capabilities to include Protected Gold and Enhanced Aluminum coatings for its polygon mirror line. The gold coating provides durability and higher reflectivity for near infrared and infrared wavelengths, while the aluminum coating is ideal for visible and UV wavelenghts.

Adding to its long line of industry awards, Lincoln was a recent finalist in Laser Focus World's 1997 Commercial Technology Achievement Awards Program.

Lincoln Laser is a manufacturer or precision polygonal mirrors, high-speed motors and standard motor controllers used for laser scanning applications. Lincoln also has the capability to custom-build electro-optic modules combining its components with lasers, optics, modulators and other electronic devices.
