igus is introducing a heavy-duty version of its popular range of drylin ZLW toothed belt linear guides. With a maximum stoke length of 3m, the new drylin ZLW-20 can handle axial loads of up to 75kg and radial loads up to 300kg.
Suitable for quick positioning applications, the wide belt drive permits speeds of more than 5m/s, depending on the load. The tension can easily be adjusted in the steel-reinforced polyurethane toothed belt. Underwater applications are also possible with a special belt.
The drylin ZLW-20 is offered with three shaft centre distances (120mm, 160mm and 200mm). Thanks to the low profile of these toothed belt axes, the units can be installed even where spaces is very restricted. The support blocks, rails and carriages are available in either aluminium or stainless steel; the stainless steel system is particularly suitable for applications in the food industry.
The use of iglidur J linear bearings makes the linear system self-lubricating and maintenance-free. The absence of lubricant also makes the linear axes insensitive to dust and dirt, as particles will not stick to the moving parts.
