New lubrication-free toothed belt axis from Treotham

Treotham presents a new lightweight and compact
toothed belt axis from igus, designed for low cost fast automation in confined
installation spaces.

igus’ new extra-compact toothed belt axis is based on
its flat drylin N linear system. Consisting of a completely standard fitment of
components, the new axis is easily assembled within a few minutes and
cost-effective. Equipped with motor and control, the new system can carry loads
of up to 20 Newton and a translation of 60 millimetres per revolution.

From the lubrication-free plain bearing and the
maintenance-free linear guide up to the completely ready-to-install linear
robot, igus develops solutions for the industry with its plastics – either as a
single part or as a system. With the help of its linear construction kit, the
motion plastics specialist has combined its drylin N low-profile linear guide
with a toothed belt to develop the new cost-effective drylin ZLN toothed belt
axis as standard.

Whether in vending machines, service robotics or even
in automation systems, the new compact toothed belt system can be installed
quickly and easily in the smallest of spaces. At just 27 millimetres high and
40 millimetres wide, the flat drylin N linear guide 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 20 Newton can be moved vertically at a ratio of 60 millimetres per

By using high-performance polymers in the sliding
carriage, users can completely dispense with lubricants and thus, the
maintenance of the unit. Moisture, dirt and dust are not a problem for the
drylin ZLN – an excellent advantage for machines operating 24/7.

in and install for low cost automation

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. The new axis is, therefore, not only
lightweight due to the use of plastic components, but also cost-effective and
delivered quickly. A completely 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. The new, cost-effective toothed belt axis can be delivered by
Treotham in the desired size with a maximum length of up to 750 millimetres in
24 hours.
