Compact toothed belt axis launched
Published: 24 February 2020 - Rachael Morling
New from igus is drylin ZLN-40, a compact toothed belt axis based on its flat drylin N linear system. Measuring 27mm high and 40mm wide, it can be delivered with a stroke length of up to 750mm.
When equipped with an igus motor and drive controller, it can handle loads of up to 20N and has a speed ratio of 60mm per revolution. Capable of withstanding moisture, dirt and dust, the lightweight toothed belt is supported on ball bearings which enable high speed motion.
According to the company, by using iglidur polymers in the guide carriage, the linear axis runs lubrication-free and thus maintenance-free.
