LUBRICATION-FREE TOOTHED BELT AXIS ENSURES LOW-COST AUTOMATION

From its lubrication-free plain bearings and maintenance-free linear guides to a completely ready-to-install linear robot, igus develops solutions for industry with its plastics, either as single parts or as a system. With the help of its linear construction kit, it has combined its drylin N low-profile linear guide with a toothed belt and developed the new cost-effective drylin ZLN toothed belt axis as standard. This new compact system can be installed quickly and easily in the smallest of spaces in vending machines, service robotics or even automation systems.

The flat drylin N linear guide, just 27mm high and 40mm wide, ensures compact construction. The toothed belt mounted on ball bearings enables high-speed dynamics. With the combination of low-profile linear guide and toothed belt, loads up to 20N can be moved vertically at a ratio of 60mm per revolution. By using high-performance polymers in the sliding carriage, users can dispense with lubricants and thus reduce the maintenance of the unit. Moisture, dirt and dust are no problem for the drylin ZLN: great advantages, especially for machines that are in use 24/7.

The new toothed belt axis for low cost automation consists of standard components from the drylin modular system that can be fitted together and assembled quickly. Thus, it is not only lightweight due to the use of plastic components, but also cost-effective and delivered quickly. A ready-to-install drylin ZLN can be ordered with NEMA stepper motors or with EC/BLDC DC motors as well as a suitable dryve control system. It can be delivered from Treotham in the desired size up to 750mm already from 24 hours.
