Linear axes with toothed belt drive



The drylin linear axes with toothed belt drive are suitable for many positioning and adjustment tasks. The lubrication-free drylin W profile guide acts as a linear guide and a toothed belt acts as a drive. The stroke is individually selectable. Thanks to the lightweight design using polymer and aluminium, igus linear axes with toothed belt drive have a low mass inertia, making them highly efficient.

Both in confined installation spaces and in applications requiring high torque support, the series of linear units with toothed belt drive offer the right solution; both as a single system and in gantry designs. All drylin toothed belt axes can be ordered with ready-to-connect configurations with drylin E stepper and DC motors.
