drylin® E News 2022 - an almost endlessly expandable drive - EGW

drylin® EGW - Endless Gear linear module

Are you looking for a linear system for long travels? Then discover our Endless Gear linear module with rack and pinion drive. If rail profiles could be attached endlessly, it would even be possible to control several carriages in parallel or independently of each other. Users could also easily extend travels at a later point in time thanks to the rack and pinion segments - similar to a toy train. 

The drylin EGW modular system provides you with everything from one source - from linear guide and carriages to chains and cables for energy supply. If required, we will deliver your kit ready to install, including motor and control system.
