igus releases DryLin ZLW axes modular construction kit

September 7, 2016 - Motion plastics specialist igus has developed a modular construction kit for belt-driven DryLin ZLW linear axes. With the ‘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.

With the 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 a solution for food and laboratory settings, and the open design makes the system easy to clean and resistant against dirt and debris.
