The EGC toothed belt and spindle axes from Festo have now been expanded with crucial safety elements.
Increased monitoring means increased safety. A new addition in the toothed belt and spindle axis EGC is the linear measurement system that directly monitors the position of the axis slide. A single or double channel clamping unit also works directly on the guide rails of the axis.
Expanded to include the safety system CMGA, the toothed belt and spindle axis EGC has thus developed into a complete safety solution. With the ability to detect all drive train elasticity, it operates with absolute accuracy. System-intrinsic inaccuracies can be optimally adjusted by the motor controller.
