Variable width and length linear axes with new DryLin ZLW modular system from igus9/1/2016

To simplify product selection of maintenance-free, self-lubricating linear guides, motion plastics specialist igus has developed a modular construction kit for belt-driven DryLin ZLW linear axes. With the new ‘ZLW toolkit,’ customers can customize their own solutions, including rail widths, system length, etc., even for small installation spaces. Cross beams, rails, and/or carriages are available in either aluminum or stainless steel to suit a wider range of application requirements.

Higher loads and more dynamic applications now possible

With new 20 size ZLW system, loads up to (165 lbf.) can be lifted with stroke lengths of up to 3 meters (118 in.). Wide drive belts can also permit high speeds of more than 5 m/s (16 ft./s), dependent on the load. Underwater applications are possible via special toothed belt.

The lack of required lubricant and stainless steel options make the ZLW an excellent solution for food and laboratory settings, and the open design makes the system easy to clean and highly resistant against dirt and debris.
