drylin® ZLW linear actuator for 7 axis Universal Robots

Toothed belt actuator + UR adapter kit +gearbox and motor controller + cable carriers. Upon request with UR cap integration

Users can now easily add a 7th axis to their existing articulated arm robots.  The new adapter kits for ZLW toothed belt axes extend the workspace or the radius of action of your robot by the so-called 7th axis.  The high compatibility enables the integration not only in, but also in external robots such as the Universal Robots.

For the integration in UR robots you need:

  • Flexible use of robots instead of locking kinematics
  • Connection via linear carriage of the ZLW-20 modular axis
  • Adapter kit including suitable e-chain systems®
  • Linear systems with strokes up to 3m as standard. Up to 6m after technical inspection

Clamps for energy supply systems

Secure fixing of the energy supply system for small robots and cobots

Clamps for energy chains and protective hoses on robot arms

The new universal mounts are cost-effective, flexible and quick to install; they can be fastened with a hoop and loop tape for different robot arm diameters. Furthermore, the clamps are silicone-free and therefore suitable for the automotive industry.

  • As universal single clamp for cobot
  • Ready configured Universal Robots kits for UR3(e), UR5(e), UR10(e), UR16(e) 
  • New: fiber-rod holder for UR10(e), for 600mm fiber-rods
