Linear drive technology specialist igus is
offering its linear actuators with polymer bearings, complete with motor.
Currently, the small motor range covers
stepper motors in sizes NEMA17 and NEMA23. The motors are optionally available
with encoder and/or brake. Stepper motors are a good accessory to the DryLin
linear drives due to their outstanding cost-effectiveness, precision, and
The new linear axis DryLin E SAW-0630 with
NEMA 17 motor is driven via a trapezoidal or high helix thread lead screw.
Numerous pitches from 1.5 – 15 mm are available. The drive lead screws are
supported by ball bearings. The lead screw nuts are made of tribologically
optimised iglide high-performance polymers, and guarantee freedom from
lubrication over the entire stroke length, and entire life of the bearing.
Almost all the components used for the ready-to-fit
linear unit are made from plastic and aluminum, meaning the system is extremely
lightweight. The SAW-0630 is ideal for simple lubricant-free format
adjustments, feed movements, and the handling of components. The new driven
axis is available from stock within a few days, in the exact length specified,
and including the motor.
The linear guide itself is based on the
maintenance free DryLin W system, is comprised of a bearing housing and
tribologically optimised polymer gliding film for very low friction and wear.
The design makes a flexible and modular structure possible, making assembly
There a numerous design possibilities to
choose from, with 12 rail profiles available, single and double rail options,
and the choice between individual bearings or complete slides. These guides are also available as linear
axes with a toothed belt drive.
