Linear Axis Systems

The LIN axis modules are positioning systems driven by timing belts that can implement linear movements with programmable routes and speeds. Re-circulating ball guides run within the aluminium body. Multi-axle robotic systems can be constructed in a flexible manner to conform to the task in hand by combining multiple LIN modules.

Construction sizes are available for loads ranging from 1 kg to over 400 kg. Depending upon the requirement, it is possible to supply the units without a motor and transmission, with a step motor (SM) or with an servo motor (EC). Control units are prepared for the versions that come complete with a motor.

Available designs:

  • Solo axles, synchronous axles, or support axles

  • With drive shaft in accordance with customer specification

  • With transmission / motor flange in accordance with customer specification

  • Including planetary transmission as well as stepper / servo motor (braked / non-braked)

  • Variable carriage plate length

  • Variable stroke length (standard stroke length: up to 5000 mm)

  • Low-rust design possible

  • Including fixing material

  • Including sensors (mechanical or inductive proximity switches)

  • Low-maintenance design

Areas of application:
The linear modules are primarily used in the construction of special machines. Irrelevant whether dealing with simple feeding, equipping and discharge machines or with a completely modular production line, linear modules have been used for all of these purposes
