Belt Drive, Wheel Guides

Belt driven, wheel guided units are units for dynamic applications with high speed, high acceleration, smooth motion and medium to high loads. They have speeds up to 10m/s and acceleration up to 40m/s².

A belt drive consists of a toothed belt which is attached to the carriage of the unit. The belt runs between two pulleys positioned at either end of the profile with one attached to the motor and the other mounted in a tensioning station. They are made of plastic with steel cords and have high speeds, long stroke, low noise and low overall weight.

A wheel guide consists of ball bearing wheels that run on a hardened steel rail. They are a simple and robust guiding method offering high speeds, high loads and medium accuracy.
