Stainless steel linear axis with toothed belt drive

Flat corrosion-resistant stainless steel toothed belt axis

Hygienic and robust with low installation height

The drylin® toothed belt axis series is extended by a new modular version for installation size 10.  The flat linear axis ZLW-10120 with 120mm width is completely made of stainless steel and has an installation height of only 40mm. Based on the drylin® W stainless steel profile guide, the linear carriage is driven by a neoprene toothed belt and is ready-to-connect to drylin® E stepper, DC and EC/BLDC motors.

The linear axis is corrosion-free and particularly suitable for contact with water and media and in environments requiring intensive cleaning. The robust construction with lubrication-free drylin® W linear plain bearings ensures a long service life and maintenance-free operation.

Robust and versatile use even in smaller installation sizes

igus has developed the ZLW linear axis in stainless steel for this purpose

In order to be able to provide a stainless steel linear axis for smaller installation spaces, igus® has developed the ZLW 10 series. Optionally, it can be supplied ready for connection to stepper or DC motors, so that the installation effort is as low as possible. With the two single rails, the linear axis is significantly lighter and it saves weight.
