                          7. Axis for

drylin® ZLW 7th axis for Universal Robots

Toothed belt axis + adapter kit for UR + gearbox and motor + energy chains, upon request with UR cap integration

Users can now easily expand their already used articulated arm robots by a 7th axis:
The new adapter kits for ZLW toothed belt axes expand the working space or the action range of your robot around the so-called 7th axis. The high compatibility enables the integration not only in robolink® articulated arm robots, but also in external robots such as Universal Robots.

For the integration in UR robots you need:
  • The drylin® ZLW-20 toothed belt axis is suitable as a wide, flat linear axis
  • Integration with Universal Robots with UR CAP 
  • Optionally with cobot clamps and triflex® R
Configure axis 7 incl. e-chain
