One linear module with 2 drives - drylin® SLWT

... independently controllable ...

drylin® SLW linear module with double lead screw and carriage in wide design.

The separate adjustment and operation of 2 individual  linear carriages of a linear module is the great advantage of the SLWT tandem series. On the basis of the new drylin® rail profile WS-16-120, we have simultaneously expanded the tandem series. In addition to having a wide support surface, the linear modules offer the greatest degree of flexibility in the choice of drive. Two angular drives installed side by side are an ergonomic advantage for manual operation. And at the same time, it is also possible to operate 2 stepper motors in parallel from one side. The linear module is available both with a lubrication-free plain bearing lead screw and dynamically with a ball bearing lead screw. As the first installation size, also with dryspin® lead screw technology for thread pitches from 3 to 30mm.
