Belt Driven Linear Actuators: drylin® ZLW

The drylin® ZLW is a line of toothed/timing-belt actuators that are best suited to move low loads at high speeds, even up to 5 m/s depending on the load.  Each linear actuator system is designed with our own highly engineered,dry-running plastic bearing liners which enable quiet, grease-free and maintenance-free operation. Whether used as an individual system or as part of a gantry robot system, the ZLW series offers the ideal solution when both confined space and a high level of torque support are required. All drylin® ZLW belt driven linear actuators can be ordered ready for installation and configured with drylin® E stepper and DC motors.

  • Dry-running plastic linear bearing liners
  • Ideal for speeds up to 2-3m/s
  • Long strokes up to 3,000mm
  • Lightweight anodized aluminum profile
